An experimental rock/wave piece released in 1981 by Backstreet Backlash Records in the Netherlands, which also released "Nyrabakiga – Cor Corora" that combines African rhythm and experimental sound. This is the label's last record, which is a collection of tracks recorded under various names and while participating in various projects from around 1978. While experimental/industrial/improvisation is at the core of this album, it also incorporates a variety of rhythmic sensibilities, including the aforementioned Nyrabakiga and the members involved in this work, who have also left On-U type space dub work. The industrial dub wave "Power To The Heartless", experimental tune "Turn Off Your Radio" with crazy vocals over a loop of tape and effects sounds, the scuzzy dub reggae "Can't Get Used" and the ravage-filled, goofy post-punk of "Honour The Independent" are particularly recommended. A total of 9 tracks summarize their activities, which are imbued with a DIY and experimental spirit.

アフリカンリズムとエクスペリメンタルサウンドを掛け合わせた傑作”Nyrabakiga – Cor Corora”のリリース元でもあるオランダのBackstreet Backlash Recordsよりリリースされた81年のエクスペリメンタル・ロック/ウェーブ作品。78年頃から活動を始め、様々な名義、プロジェクトへの参加をしながら録りためた曲群を作品化したレーベル最後のレコード。エクスペリメンタル/インダストリアル/インプロなどが骨幹にありつつも前述のNyrabakigaや本作にも関わっている多くのメンバーでOn-U系のスペースダブ作品も残しているなど様々なリズム感覚を取り入れているのが本作の聞き所のひとつ。インダストリアル・ダブ・ウェーヴのような”Power To The Heartless”、テープやエフェクト音のループに狂った不穏なヴォーカルが絡むエクスペリメンタル・チューン”Turn Off Your Radio”、スカスカのダブレゲエ”Can't Get Used”、荒廃感に満たされたグダグダのポストパンク”Honour The Independent”などDIYや実験精神が宿る彼らの活動がまとめられた全9曲。
