1992 saw The Pink Dots anxious to find a new path. The pain of losing their inspirational guitar player Bob Pistoor to cancer, yet simultaneously enjoying an unexpected taste of success with the album "The Maria Dimension" saw the band plunged into a spin.Resisting the temptation of rushing a new album together and perhaps capitalising on the Maria momentum, The Dots instead decided on a long sojourn in the studio. Guests were invited - namely former LPD violin player Patrick Q. Wright and old friend Steve Stapleton (Nurse With Wound). The music presented here is pretty much untouched from the original improvisations in the studio…there has just been an amount of very necessary editing (anyone for 43 minutes of "On the Boards/Swords?").There is also material from the other Dots album which largely emerged from long studio sessions - "9 Lives To Wonder".
