Notes

Destructed/constructed at Regents Park Recording Company.
This used to be some XTC records. It is now a collection of tracks that have been electronically processed/shattered and layered with other songs or lyrical pieces.
If you liked 'Go+' then this record weighs approximately the same amount.
On 10.10.79 Alan Jakoby was The Tapir.
