Alan Freeman, Steve Freeman, Nigel Harris: sounds, cassettes, loops, tapes, electronics, radio, percussion, utensils, gas cylinder, gongs, bells, metal, effects, vocals, synths, guitars.

In an attempt to complete the ZBB story I delved into some boxes of old tapes and found some lost and forgotten gems. Some of these were marked "not to be used" due to crackles, noise and/or glitches - impossible to repair at the time, but relatively easy to correct with today's digital editing technology. The resulting collection is a diverse tour through many ZBB styles, adding up to an engaging set of rarities from the Cortex and Out Of The Ashes sessions.
