Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about to release, their own albums. It happened, as the title suggests, on June 1, 1974. The album features some key performances from Cale, Eno and Nico on side one, whilst side two is entirely performed by Kevin Ayers. As an additional garnish to the already stellar cast, Mike Oldfield plays bass and Robert Wyatt plays drums. Limited edition reissue of 1000 copies on Island.
