Notes...
Very much a continuation from the ideas of earlier cassettes like Gravamina For Uxoricide and Diabolik Trepidation, this had two side-long patchwork suites that flowed as complex works. Although they may sound like composed performances, they were actually sewn together often by bouncing previously recorded tracks from two cassette machines whilst adding a third layer. Primitive, it was remarkable what was achieved without the use of a mixer.
