The tracks presented here were recorded direct to DAT in a single hour-long session on 4th January 1996.  There has been little post-production other than mixing and truncation, with the exception of the fifth track, which is the second track reversed and time-stretched.  All other tracks are as they were played, with no overdubs.  The closing notes of track three were fed live into a loop that forms the basis of track four.  Mike continued to play over this; I prepared lunch.
