    I remember getting this album way back then and discovering the 'Difficult Music' genre. I loved it so much I would listen to my tape copy skating thru the city (SF) It was a great place to start and find the underground music of that time, Coil, Bourbonese Qualk, Muslimgauze, David Jackman (Organum) The NWW track is a great example of a British sense of humour, especially that spoken intro. nanana na nanana na hay hay good-bye...

      A review in Sounds memorably called one contributor to this album a "boring bastard," and another a "tedious git".
