Plot conceived and original text written July 1988 in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Recorded 28th November to 7th December 1988, mixed 19th to 21st October 1989 at the Electronic Music Studio of the Akademie Der Künste Der DDR, Berlin.
Assembled 1st to 3rd September 1990 in Heiner's basement in Frankfurt.

Playful and reminds me of The Science Group, with psychedelic semi-distant shouting and samples, reminding me of Fred Frith and some Swedish psychedelic bands like Älgarnas Trädgård and Ur Kaos. There's a Dvouletá Fáma sample in the end of "Start the Show". There's also some other samples, so... it's a bit annoying too, now that it's lending. Also, the shouting gets a bit boring.
