The Frippertonics loop for B1 is the first piece performed at Calgary Planetarium, August 8th 1979.
The Frippertronics for B2 is the second piece, first house, at Madame Wong's, Los Angeles, July 25th 1979.
Buster Jones and Paul Duskin played alongside these loops in September and Absalm el Habib gave voice during December 1979.
The solo guitar part to "Signified" is manual repetition in comparison with technological repetition of the Frippertronics and is the complete second take. The first take broke down after 6 1/2 minutes.

Bass - Buster Jones
Drums - Paul Duskin
Vocals - Absalm el Habib (B1)

"God Save The King"にタイトル曲が収録されているが、本アルバムでのCDリリースは無い。上部ジャケはシングルジャケットの表裏をつなげて見たのだが、内容そして本盤の存在と共に不思議なレイアウトになっている。適当でも此の様にはならない。
本盤の内容については此方のサイトが為になるが、リリース時の評価に比べて内容は全く悪くない。特に"Side One"は、Absalm el Habib名義の"David Byrne"が参加(B1)で、Enoでは無くFrippプロデュースのTalking Headsが垣間見れ、B2では「正にディシプリンの賜物プレイ!」がスゴすぎる。
