"Finally, an official release of this monolithic album. Formed in 1992 in Melbourne, Australia, this recording was the first official release by the band. It is a collection of pieces recorded on a 4 track recorder, with only 3 tracks working. Mostly recorded in 1992, it was a way for the band to remember the tunes which were improvised in the first rehearsals. Initially a cassette only release sold at shows, it graduated to vinyl in 1994. Stylistically it probably represents the band at their most playful and exploratory. Everything is fair game. The majority of the album was recorded using a Realistic PZM microphone attached to a door, andthe guitar and violin were DI'd. The band never quite captured this sound again. This release was overseen by Mick Turner, who trawled the archives for any worthy additions and unreleased gems. This is indeed then the motherlode and part of Bella Union's ongoing attempts to release the band's entire back catalogue on vinyl, one Record Store Day at a time. 180g green vinyl 2LP, includes download code."
