Easily my favorite Renaldo & the Loaf LP, but then again, I've given this one more listen than the others they put out. Great UK tape experimental weirdness from this duo, who previous put out a cassette (and later a re-recorded/edited LP) titled "Play Struff & Sneve". Also noted for being one of the only 'outside' artists invited to play with the Residents, whom they recorded an LP with ("Title in Limbo") (they were also signed to Ralph, the Residents' label).

This LP is sorely needed to be reissued on CD, as does the rest of the R&TL catalog - sadly, it is all out-of-print, and those titled that were issued on CD in the early 90's now fetch $$$$.

Fans of the Residents should give this a listen; also recommended for those who dig UK experimental late 70s-early 80s recordings, especially lo-fi/home recorded stuff.
