The bulk of this album is really just experimental recordings. Only five of the tracks are actually meant to be completed songs ("The Earth Is Hollow...", "Human Fly", "I Wanna Be Your Dog", "On Hold" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"). The rest are my earliest attempts at setting up a recording facility and being a multi-instrumentalist. All were recorded in late 1992 to early 1993 with a couple culled from recordings made in the 1980s. The equipment and the techniques were crude and primitve. The album has, essentially, been unavailable for over twenty years. In 2015, it was given a major reworking and is what is presented here.
