The decision to make "Hempton Manor" an entirely instrumental album lead to a break from The Shamen's label One Little Indian. The album is alleged to have been recorded in seven days to conclude the recording contract with One Little Indian, and the first letter of each track spell out "Fuck Birket", referring to label founder Derek Birket, who wanted the group to move back into more commercial territory.
Subtitled: "The Altered Stately Home".
