'ZOS KIA CULTUS' etched on the b-side runout makes reference to the magical school developed by the occultist Austin Osman Spare.

I got a red version that was sealed but didn't come with the cd or any of the bonus stuff. What gives?

I got a slightly warped vinyl of this a few weeks ago at a market for 2euro. What an incredible album. Strange and beautiful. Track it down, you won't be disappointed with the class.
