Mastered at Townhouse Studios, London.
Pressed at Orlake Records, Dagenham.

"IT'S DOUBTFUL WHETHER ANY BAND EVER BEFORE HAD SO MUCH FUN OR GAVE SUCH JOYFUL HILARITY TO IT'S LISTENERS"

nash: guitar
"something we've done will go down as an all time classic"
ped: drums
"i'm not Bryan Ferry"
holly: voice
"no-one has the right to tell me it's immoral or selfish or wrong to do what i do"
mark: bass
"so really, i'm never honest. ever."
paul: dance
"i think i know that life is going to be quite short so i want to spend it the way i want to."

Tell me where you want to go heaven's above and hells below the pleasure seekers are dying to meet ya they need young blood the angels can take you there you'd beware of devil may care.

"Love of fame, fear of disgrace, schemes for advancement, desire to make life comfortable and pleasant, and the urge to humiliate others are often the root of the valour men hold in such high esteem."

Andy's world is crumbling fast in retrospect of the white light silver clouds and heroes on the wall Movicold coca cola Mahler Strauss and Mickey Mouse

Necessity: the zen master asked the solemn question - what is buddah? he took off his sandal, put it on his head, and walked away

"victims turn away the manipulators"
"we've seen what it's like"
"do you think i'm a complete darling?"
"i have a laugh and people respect me for that"
"we used to pretend 'Relax' was about motivation and it really was"

"Vary pleasure incessantly (never more than two hours at the same task) and from all these successive pleasures make one continual pleasure."
"Pleasure will be sensual in the after life"

for a picture disc this has far better sound and less surface noise than modern picture discs. I think this had the picture pressed between 2 slabs of clear vinyl and not the modern way hence the writing is a bit blurred
