Notes

Most copies appear dark purple translucent when held up to light. This is just manufacturing variability of the one pressing and not a colored vinyl version.

" Four super tight cuts from a Californian band who I've never heard of before. These guys must have been hiding somewhere practicing 'cos this is really good stuff. Well played and well recorded. Only their flirtation with word association on a track called "I The Cops" makes me wonder. "
Tez, from Hudderfield Sucks zine #3 1983.

My copy looks black but I'll be damed if it isn't transparent purple when I hold it up to the light. Thirty-some-odd years and I never noticed it before. Of course I probably haven't pulled it from its sleeve since the month I bought it.

This is nonsense. There was no colored vinyl pressed w/ the first and only Selecta run.
