"Alternative TV"のライヴ限定バンドで"The Pop Group"のメンバーも参加。過去ライヴは4〜5回ほどで本盤はその一部から。
"Wire"同様、当時「ロック以外の何か」を探していたバンドは数少ないが、彼ら(ATV)ほど支離滅裂なまでに貪欲な吸収力を持ったバンドはいない。悲しいかな実験のほとんどは成功していないが、本盤はライヴならではの即興性が上手くプラスに働いたようだ。ほとんどがインプロじゃないのか、という構成を持つ此の音を聴く限り、Jazzは可能性を押し広げる有効な手段だと思わざるを得ない。
2007年にVinal JapanからリリースされたCDには、2枚の7"(Single+EP)がボーナス収録。
