John French - original drummer with Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Fred Frith - founder of the art-rock ensemble Henry Cow, Henry Kaiser - innovative experimental guitarist and composer, and Richard Thompson - founding member of Fairport Convention.

This second oddball masterpiece from four of the world's finest experimental master musicians was originally released in 1990. Together French, Frith, Kaiser and Thompson conjure up a heady mix, covering a bewildering variety of genres, from folk and R&B to avant-garde and comic opera.

Underpinning the whole album is the extraordinary level of their musicianship. Amongst the highlights are John French's hilarious "Now That I Am Dead" (in which a deceased musician discovers death is the career boost he's being waiting for) and Richard Thompson's remarkable "Begging Bowl" and the simply stunning "Killing Jar".

Re-mastered by Henry Kaiser from the original master tapes. Digipac packaging using all elements of the original artwork. Plus a previously unreleased live cover of the Stones' "Play With Fire".
