Originally released in 1995 by Daft Records. Digipak, limited to 400 copies.

"15 relatively short tracks in a fast aggressive album. The overall feel emphasises industrial rhythms - harsh loops which could be synth-created or gated. These are combined with some vocal loops on most tracks - sometimes a song at others a snatch of cry or call. These are then combined with some percussion - tabla, drums, cymbals.

There are also other instruments sampled - a rollicking harmonium in 'Qazi Hussain' and 'Qazi Hussain (re-prize-al)', or strings at various points. There are also some electronic effects which sound like birds and insects - or which ARE birds and insects. And it all ends with an extended rising and falling manipulated tone at the end.

This is one of the albums where the variety is the main driving force: interspersed between the fast paced majority are some slower, lazy paced tracks. A very enjoyable album edging towards the harsher sounds of some later albums." (review by Jeremy Keens)
