"Apart from our collaboration on this record, Peter and I have been working together and comparing notes for some time. In 1975 we produced a boxed set or oracle cards called 'Oblique Strategies', which were used extensively in the making of this record."

"Special thanks are due to Achim Roedelius and Möbi Moebius ("Cluster") for their advice and encouragement in Cologne, and to Robert Fripp and David Bowie for the same in Berlin."

"This record was recorded at Basing Street Studios, London, with Rhett Davies and Dave Hutchins engineering, and at Conny's Studio outside Cologne, West Germany, with Conny Plank engineering. No noise reduction systems were used."

"The prints were made at Westerham Press in Kent on a Roland 4B four-colour offset machine and printed on Royal Cornwall Cover 160 GSM 'Book White'. The printing was supervised by Hansjorg Mayer."
