"... Experimental music is fine by me, but once you go into the
studio and start cutting the marketable product,
surely you need to have your musical strategies organised
and understood." - Roadrunner November 1980
This starts a trend at M Squared for releasing compilations of
wide ranging sounds and ideas from various bands and hybrids.
You can't please all the people all the time.
Contains the track that gave the name to The Makers of the
Dead Travel Fast and an off the wall Stones cover from those
northern beaches' favourites The Barons.
Some record stores objected to the cover image.
