1-4: This material dates from two proto Djam Karet incarnations, when they went under the names Kafka's Breakfast and Happy Cancer. These 4 tracks originally appeared on a cassette as the A side of Happy Cancer's "McMusic For The McMasses" (HC001) from 1982.

5: A live improvisational 8-track recording (no overdubs!) left over from "The Ritual Continues" sessions, circa early 1987. Mixed down in September 1988 for this release.

"Originally released on cassette by Auricle in the 1980s, this reissue has been remastered and tweaked for the best possible sound from the original master supplied by Chuck Oken in 1988. As the multi-track masters are lost and the master copy in Chuck’s possession had become faded and stretched, it was lucky that Auricle master was fine. It had been backed-up to digital (as with all Auricle tapes) back in 2009. The digital transfer and mastering was done by Auricle's Alan Freeman, and completed much later (in December 2016) with assistance and advice from Djam Karet's Gayle Ellett."

Much thanks to Andy, John and A. & S. Freeman.
