I had the Regent Theatre tape which fills one side of this and I really thought it was good enough on it's own, if a little short. So the aim was to fill the other side and get it out. Alastair had recorded Timebomb in 1986 and had it turned down by Flying Nun, but no solo stuff had been released. As Plagal Grind was pretty slow to get off the ground, this tape seemed like a good stop-gap. The early first edition included the B-Side of Timebomb, which was pretty irrelevant once released on vinyl, plus a couple of walkman recordings that weren't up to AG's standards, so the second edition replaced most of them with early Plagal Grind 4-track stuff and solo 4-track recordings by AG. It was a clear improvement, but for me the live side remained the gem of this tape.
