Album Notes
"Chroniclers of the fate of the simple man, on the route London - Skopje - Istanbul." (Dnevnik, Macedonia)
Bongo Mike and Extremely Frank Jeremy, travelling buskers from the UK, had their own conflict for many years with authorities in Britain and elsewhere in western Europe, over the right to perform music in public places without interference from officials, bureaucrats and police. Political songs from that era include "I Am The Professor Of The University Of The Street", which was released as a single in Germany, and received positive reviews from the music press over there.

Throughout this period they used to find an escape from their troubles by making periodic visits to Yugoslavia, Greece and Turkey - but, ironically, as a result of taking up an invitation to spend time recording in the newly independent country of Macedonia, they then found themselves getting emotionally entangled in the atmosphere of conflict that pervaded the Balkans for the whole of the nineties and beyond... although of course they remained neutral outsiders from the fighting itself.

As singer- songwriters they have experimented with various different musical genres in the presentation of their songs, but the material on this album,"War Sex and Family" - which was composed and recorded at a time when they had just suffered a major setback in their legal struggle in London, and felt very influenced by their Balkan muse - is a fusion of rock and folk, with songs telling stories of war, and of love seen in the context of war.
