The tracks were engineered by Chris Barrow, with production and additional guitar by Ludo Camberlin. The B-side, “Dance of the Guilty” holds 5 Phantom Limb tracks which were originally released as a 12 inch EP on Sublabel, a division of Torso in 1982. They were engineered by Ward Kuczynski, and produced by Phantom Limb.

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
