about

A record created over 2 frantic weekends with borrowed equipment. Old friend Mick Marshall provided the Yamaha DX9 which was new and utterly fascinating back in 1984; there was a Linn Drum, a Fostex 8-track recorder
and much spontaneity.
Pat White came onboard for some scorching guitar, Patrick Q. gathered the violins together and provided a self-made choir for "Requiem" (he in fact has a solo recording of this piece with different words- if you ask nicely he may let you hear it!). Another Pat (Bermingham) helped with mixing and rush released it on his InPhaze label while EK was in The Netherlands. A little embarrassingly, the cover was apparently a page ripped from a library book.
The album came and went....however when a reissue was discussed it seemed that the master tape had also disappeared, or to be more accurate,it had disintegrated in Pat B's garden shed.
This faithful cd reproduction was remastered by Ray Steeg from the original vinyl and bonus cuts are from "Dance China Doll"- the 12" EP which preceeded it.There are also a couple of bonus pieces from the obscure vinyl second edition of the album ("Suicide Pact "live in 1988)
and the long gone "Perhaps we'll only see a Thin Blue Line" collection
("The Fool with Hammers").
