Weirdly atmospheric songs accompanied by rather bizarre Fell/Wharf contributions. Not the usual BF thing....

N.B. the original analogue master tapes for this release were mislaid in the 1990s by the cassette duplicating studio; the DAT safety copy has yet to be located... Therefore this digital release has been prepared from the best quality copy currently available. À propos of which, the aggressive tape destruction effects employed in track 6 ['Have A Nice Day'] are deliberate - and always have been.
