From the liner notes: "This release is not the follow-up to Horse Rotorvator... but a completely separate package - a stopgap and a breathing space - the space between two twins. Presented here are thoroughbreds that escaped the Horse Rotorvator - discarded shards, distortions, disappointments, scrambled and disassembled stages. Remnants of what once was. This record is a chance for us to release some otherwise placeless pieces of music.
Released in five different editions:
1) 2000 copies on black vinyl.
2) Coloured vinyl edition, with some copies including "The Wheel/The Wheal" bonus 7" (LOCI 2). One source says this edition was limited to 900 copies, some on red vinyl and some on clear. A second source states that it was limited to 650 copies, 150 on red vinyl and 500 clear.
3) 25 copies on red vinyl in an unfinished sleeve. All copies include "The Wheel/The Wheal" 7".
4) A deluxe boxed edition limited to 55 copies, each containing the album, The Wheel/The Wheal" 7" single, and numerous art prints, posters and inserts.
5) 23 copies sold via mail order in 2001, each having gold leaf applied to the front cover and including a numbered and signed certificate.
This album was also issued in Germany by Normal Records in 1990.
