A record that carries an immense amount of cultural capital for a certain breed of psychedelic rock-focused record collectors, now reissued in deluxe style by Now-Again. The first time around there were only twenty-five copies, so thank goodness for reissues eh? Lots of extra material (demos, photos) added to this outsider classic.

9/10 lukevollar Customer review, 29th January 2015
Wow. This unearthed masterpiece has a great and somewhat creepy story behind it. Stories of drug abuse and escalating mental illness with paranoia, psychosis and massive paintings of black orchids all figuring in the story. We may never know the full story as Mr Heittkotter has now been in a psychiatric hospital for many years with no sign of ever getting out. It sounds like the most damaged and wasted record in existence with drums bass guitar and voice overlapping in seemingly random configurations, it has been rumoured that Heittkotter played everything, again we may never know. That's not to say it a challenging high art record, it's seriously groovy with elements of Royal Trux, Jandek and the Stooges on heavy heavy downers. The recording was nearly lost for ever as he was unable to pay for the recording. He pressed up a small amount of records which found there way into the hands of collectors, the rest is history..
