Only about an edition of 20 was released and being withdrawn afterwards, because the sound on the tape was too clean and too mainstream (!) for the band’s taste. Of course they blamed it to the engineer of the studio. Well, considering that the band started playing their instruments just six months earlier, its not so bad. Nevertheless it made its way to some college-radios in the US where it stayed over two months on the top of some underground-charts. The cover has never been finished.
