Mostly every track written by Yukio Yung and published by Octagonal Rabbit Music. Yukio recorded and played everything in his bedroom (except 05 and 24 which also feature Paul Smith). Thanks are due to Alan Goodridge who returned from Africa with the picture of the tree-climbing goats... and to Alan Jenkins for releasing this object. If you really want to, you can write to Yukio c/o Worshippers of the great white hamster, 80 Colchester Road, Ipswich, IP4 4RZ... or better still, leave abusive/obscene messages on the answerphone - 01 992 4759.

Author's note:
January 9th, 1986, found me in the midst of yet another of those mid-life crises, you know, the type that most normal 26-year-old children experience from time to time. On that day, I concluded (once again) that my life was dull and worthless, and must change. I'd just like to say that almost 3 months, and a whole lot of soul searching, have passed - nothing much has happened; things are much the same. It's a fucking rotten business, isn't it?! Fatalists - who'd 'ave 'em?!
