The third Stereolab single, released in November 1991 as the second release on their Duophonic Super 45s label
released November 1, 1991
A first pressing of 1000 was made where the intended clear vinyl with coloured splashes actually turned out to be a muddy greenish brown colour which the band weren't happy with. Worse still upon playing them they found that they also had a slight edge warp. The band rejected this pressing and around 790 copies were sent back to the pressing plant for recycling. The band kept around 10 and the remaining 200 were transported over for sale in France as one of the bands' friends was travelling over there and they couldn't wait for the corrected re-pressing. This has of course led to this pressing being a highly sought after item for Stereolab fans despite it being slightly faulty. A second corrected pressing of 985 copies in clear vinyl appeared shortly after.

This is the sound of Earth, a chaotic undercurrent off all that was, all that is and all that will be.
The intertwined confluence of uncanny dissonance and twisted realities, but also the unbearable revelation of the hidden strings of the very fabric of existence contorting in a disgusting, yet fascinating way before our dumbfounded eyes.
Light has a taste of sand, sound has a feeling of glass. We wanted to witness this, but were not prepared to withstand such truths.
Ambitious and visionary. Dotflac
