Toxic Shock TXLP-15, vinyl issue Spring '88, CD issue spring '92 with two bonus tracks. Was preceded by the single "Stranger/This Lonely Place" (Toxic Shock TX-009). CD also issued in Germany on Musical Tragedies MT-139. 200 copies of the vinyl were purple. The second pressing of the vinyl had the blue and red colors on the cover reversed, just for the hell of it. Recorded by Jack at Reciprocal on the mighty Otari MX-5050 half-inch 8-track. Has been called our best album; definitely our most abrasive.
Cover design by D. House and John Kenny.
