Has anyone got a non distorted version or is it just how it is? Fairly frustrating...

Repress now at Junorecords. Hope that this pressing won´t have the problem with the distorted bassdrum.

Be very careful not to get a pressing, where the bassdrum is so distorted, that "Friendly Children" is as good as unplayable
(See the comments below).

"Friendly Children" is one of those super nasty Theo jams that works as well on the floor as on the mind. It may not sound that way the first time you hear it, but it's the truth. The flip is a tough one. it starts off super slow, you can play that part at 45 and mix it with house. when it breaks down though, you gotta turn it down to 33 again to keep a similar tempo. Very bizarre, and certainly not "easy".

The worst thing about this whole project is the fact the vinyl is pressed so atrociously that it's close to unplayable. Scratch that, it is unplayable. What upsets me the most about it is that 'Friendly Children' is one of the best tracks I've heard for ages - I desperately want to be able to play this out and put it on CDs - only the sound quality is so bad that that's not an option. It makes me weep everytime I try to listen to it.
