Notes. This compilation was assembled and released in order to try and defray some of the enormous debts accrued by Rough Trade
Distribution throughout the 1980s (it is an interesting tale, that of Rough Trade, but as there are other, more informed sources, we'll
leave it to them to tell you. Suffice to say that all the tracks included here were donated and the package is a "no-frills" affair--no
information about the tracks themselves save the songwriting credits and copyright data.

Loop live were 'felt' not just seen or heard! A total assault on the senses."
