Thanks Kruisspin, I have owned this since released, never knew that! I had just accepted it as avant-garde racket. And appreciated the irony of a racket entitled "Cowboy Song" - as I'm not a country music fan. A-side is, of course, an awesome piece of work.

for all the new generation punkers,the 'cowboy song' is a two channel recording on the left and right side of the groeve,there are two different songs just move your stereo knob to left or right and you hear two different mono versions,this was brilliant of them !
