My copy has the labels on the wrong sides. Was that a common problem with this title?

The entire first side consists of material submitted by MERZBOW, transformed by RUNZELSTIRN & GURGELSTØCK into something which, if hard to imagine, occupies some midway point between EDGARD VARESE & MONTY PYTHON. This is Musique Concret with a surreal sense of humour - lots of Pattering footsteps, gurgles, voice additions & out-of-control electronic enhancements. If someone sick enough ever made a cartoon version of 'TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE' or 'CHARLIE MANSON'S BIG NIGHT OUT', then this could quite easily pass as it's ready-made soundtrack. A bizarre classic.
The other side consists of material submitted by RUNZELSTIRN & GURGELSTØCK transformed by DUE PROCESS RRRADIO - this is a little more dense - the sounds sustained almost machine-like. At points it gets close to recognizable structure, but then Soft-Explodes into arcane & surreal fragments once more.

This album is well worth seeking out, if you have the sense of humour to cope with something like this.
