"Drama was recorded in my bedroom during 26/8/81. Some of the backing tapes used are quite old, feedback moves was recorded in 1979 and was my first attempt at producing experimental type noise. The mouse and a comment were both written by Franz Kafka, I supplied the voice and background. The sound quality on this tape as with most indepenedant cassettes, is not of an exceptionally high quality, but I feel this is secondary. The main objective being to release a recorded detail of sounds and images that might create some interest and appeal to a pitifully small miniority."
