Repress of the second album by Fanclub, originally deleted on its day of release in 1991.

"One night we all got completely wasted. We were only 22 at the time, and Don Fleming was there and we said, “Let’s make a LP overnight. We’ll just improvise some songs and do some covers and cobble it all together.” So we went to Alan McGee and said we’d love to put it out as a limited edition thing and make 500 copies of it. He said, “Sure, let’s do it!” It is an album, but it’s unofficial in a way. I like this record because I enjoyed the improvising. It was fun to do. We were definitely more open to doing that back then than we are now."
