Correct track-listing on back sleeve; Labels have wrong track order. Tracks recorded on side 1 are mentioned on side 2 and vice-versa.

Lyrics insert with liner notes.

From the insert:

"It was a different world. We made a few EPs and were suddenly offered the chance to make an album. I'd had various songs (or bit of songs) in my head and when we started to rehearse them it came to me that this was not going to be an album that would be easily defined or marketed. But we pressed on in our collective inexperience and eventually we produced a record. Listening to back to it now I'm struck by its innocence and its hap-hazard 'anarcho punk' scene was always going to be essentially peripheral but, nonetheless, that was the movement to which I fel akin, and the songs were a product of that era. Albeit seen through a slighly distorted telescope I would like to thank all the people that made the album. Special mention to Grant Showbiz who managed to harness our aspirations into something tangible and his production was sympathetic and really brings out the 'vibe' of the time. Also, thanks to Nik Turner, legendary space-rock saxophone guru. Lastly, I would like to dedicate this re-release to Max, our bassist who passed away a few years after the initial release.

Many musicians I currently work with weren't born until 7 years after the album originally came out, and in my more nostalgic moments I sit by the fire with my pipe and slippers bewildering them with tales of free tours, Zounds, Here & Now, The Mob, Stone Henge, Meanwhile Gardens, Kif-Kif, Jonathan Barnett, squat gigs, Rock Against Racism and much more. It was a different world and I'm affraid it's not coming back"
