Released to promote the two bands' September / October 1997
UK tour. The covers are all individually hand-designed. To be exact,
the sleeves originally belonged to a 7" called We Love
You by Menswear, a crap British indie band who had lots
of hype and precious few record sales - hence all the available
covers. Each was adapted with handwritten stickers on the front
for the band names and on the back for the track list and record
label address, all in various bright colours. DIY or what?
The J Church tracks on here are different (probably demo) versions
to those on The
Drama Of Alienation, possibly from the same sessions as the
tracks on the split
7" with Restos Fosiles. Though Reed played on the recording,
by the time of the tour he'd been replaced by Andee.
Wat Tyler contribute two covers. The first was originally by the
Stranglers; the insert claims it's "A warning never to go to
a hash party in Hamburg when you hate The Stranglers and don’t
take drugs". Freebird is the Lynyrd Skynyrd
song done in Wat's usual inimitable style.
