Initial mix by Steve Montgomery in London in Aug-82. Personnel in 1982 (at various intervals, but never all together): Lydia Lunch, Genevieve McGuckin, Murray Mitchell [13.13], Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Rowland S. Howard and Tracy Pew.

Personnel in 1987: Lydia Lunch (voices)/ Thurston Moore (guitar/voices) and Clint Ruin (a.k.a. Jim G. Thirlwell) (loops/treatments).

Recordings with members of the Birthday Party, which were at the time deemed inferior to the "Some Velvet Morning" single recordings. This record was supposed to be released by People's Records (run by Michael Schäumer & Michael Voigt [Monogam Records]) in 1982, but the label went bankrupt and the tapes were lost for years. One of the master reels has been lost forever. The surviving tapes were remixed by Jim Thirlwell and some guitar overdubs were done by Thurston Moore @ the BC studios in Brooklyn,New York in May-87. Released in this form without the consent of Nick Cave and Mick Harvey (they are listed on the album with aliases) because of the remixing which didn't leave many of the originals intact. Only "Dead River" and "Done Dun" were left fairly untouched and are also available on Lydia Lunch's "The Crumb" 12" (UK Widowspeak -WSP 13)["Dead River"(2:19) on this release is shorter and with less overdubs].

Time and year are not listed on this release.
