All tracks were recorded live onto two tracks at Shifty Studio in May 1987. I wanted the atmosphere of the recording to be just like the demo of these songs that Andre had sent me. So when he came up from Cape Town to do the recordings, I pointed him to the microphone, switched on the tape recorder, and went and drank tea for an hour and a half. Apart from the kak quality raps that were taken from that original cassette, what you have in your hands is what happened in that fateful session, puisies, and all. - The Producer, Lloyd Ross

All songs published by Shifty Music (ZA)
The front cover is a combination of images from paintings by Walter Meyer as composited by Petra Dammrose. Thanks Walter!
