I ripped my CD version of this and have WAV files. DM me if you want me to email it to you. There are some amazing songs on this one, and it's a gem of a disc from basically the final moments of this band.

Warp and/or James Cargill, please release this on vinyl! It's the bridge between minimal, stripped down Tender Buttons and the soundscape collage of Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age. Such a fantastic record!

This album is a magical tome, defined by sonic emotion and collaborative efforts.
A great and final "Broadcast" , that will stand the tests of the unchanging window.

Once the record finished, all should be forgotten... and forgiven. A pointless collection of bits and pieces of sketches and drafts, one might listen to as an hesitating shift for the twosome's musical aesthetics. All the elements from the hauntology box are there: naive tape manipulations, jump cuts made of field recordings, simple 3-chord guitar patterns with the pale and distant presence of Trish Keenan's voice over the top. Unlike the further 'investigation' lead with Julian House's Focus Group, those snippets of vain ruminations only manage to break the spell...

This 20 minute EP might be described as Trish Keenan vs Nurse With Wound. The vocals, where they appear, are laid over an assemblage of found sounds and samples - when a traditional instrument appears, it is pretty much at odds with Trish's tune, as often as not. The editing is dense and inventive, but the result is very much a collage, and quality of vocal recordings vary (in places distorted or muffled). For sure, there are no orderly/clear pop performances here like 'Corporeal, 'Tears In The Typing Pool', or (to go way back) 'Distant Call.'
