    There was intended to be a follow-up to this album, a CD called "Shocks On The Wire" for release in 1988. While it was compiled and ready to go, it never happened, due to the collapse of the distributor Red Rhino/The Cartel. It featured more exclusive tracks by Suns Of Arqa, David Toop, Negativland, Shamen, Coldcut, Krispy 3 and a remix of Dub Syndicate's "Cuss Cuss", the "East Lancs Mix".

      This is the only place you can hear all of this version of Ravi Shankar. Other On-U compilations subsequently feature the edit made for the Classic Selection Vol 1 compilation, which takes out the "second verse".

        Like the On-U 12" 'Stop That Train', 'The Need to Live' is trailed here as being forthcoming on Singers & Players' 'Vacuum Pumping' LP, yet it wasn't included on that LP. For me, it's one of the stand out tracks on this excellent compilation.
