"Originally released in 1978, this was the second album by San Francisco's sci-fi obsessed, experimental 'acid punk' band, Chrome, formed in 1977 by Damon Edge. A brilliant combination of punk rock aesthetic, primitive electronics, tape manipulation and sampling, Chrome are often credited as being precursors to the industrial sound. Also the first album to feature the mad guitar stylings of Helios Creed. Includes the bonus track "The Manifestation (Of The Idea)", originally released on the 1982 Chrome Box. Printed inner sleeve with lyrics."
