Notes

Mute reissue of LP originally issued in 1979. The record's runout bears the same etchings as the 1981 Fetish Records reissue with the Fetish catalog number scratched out and the Mute catalog number added on. Based on these etchings, it is likely that the stampers for the Fetish pressing were reused for this Mute pressing.

Recorded at the Studios of Industrial Records in the weeks ending September 3rd, 1979.

Original recording ℗ & © 1979 Industrial Records Ltd.
Re-released on license to Mute Records 1983.

Originally released in October 1979, TG's fourth LP leans more towards electronic and sequenced sounds and sheds a lot of the murky industrial mire of their earlier albums. The general sound is grainy, still far from top-notch, such is the character of the group. Tracks like the title track and 'Hot On The Heels Of Love' are almost club friendly, the latter track serving as a preview to future TG splinter group Chris & Cosey's early material. Other tracks like 'Walkabout' and 'Persuasion' display an eerie primitive futurism that the band seemed to be leaning towards in their later years until their disbanding in 1981.
