The ghosts of The Velvet Underground, Les Rallizes Dénudés and Amon Düül loom large
over their personal feedback song-destruction universe. This LP is the first re-issue
of their original CD-R-only release in Japan in 1999 in a very limited edition of
100 copies. It has been remastered in Berlin from original recordings and presented
here in an edition of 300. Here is what David Keenan (Wire magazine) thought about
