Notes

Recorded At T.C.S. Studios, Melbourne, Australia. The album cover notes state that one of the musical instruments used was "Clarinet", this was a misprint and should have read "Clavinet".

We did a lot of experimenting and had a lot of fun recording this, maybe it was a little self indulgent. One error on the cover "Clarinet"should be "Clavinet"

This record used to be a standard of almost every second-hand record store, salvation army, fleamarket, etc in Melbourne and Sydney (no doubt in other states also)
You could find it almost as reliably as a crate of Kamahl... definitely not the case anymore.
I became so sick of seeing it, that it was not until sometime later that I actually thought to buy and listen!
For my own taste the album is not quite "out there", nor catchy enough, but it's reassuring to know that Australia had at least one artist attempting a more interesting style of disco album than what the mainstream audiences were into (ok Cybotron too, but you can file them with the prog-rockers I think).
Interesting sidenote: Dennis Garcia was the synth player on some of David Bowie's tours in the 70's and 80's (by my information)
Also: every copy of this I've seen suffers from a bizarre laminate fault that makes the gatefold cover appear 'crinkled', even when otherwise mint.
In the end.. still worth picking up if you happen to find a copy left at the Salvos.
