The original liner notes for the album read thus:

Dear listener,

you hold in your hands a dual first for this is not only the debut long-player from erstwhile pop maestro the Futurist but also the inaugural release from Psychedelicate Records - the new home of non-square sounds!

And with the happenin' sounds inside this lp the list of Futurist followers is sure to grow! Flip to the wild bossa-nova of 'Emma peel Slowly' - a dance craze for this or any other year - guaranteed to delight the swinging younger set!

Then dig the flipside! Swirling electronics, groovy keyboards, tape-loops and acoustic guitars combine with Beat writing & philosophy in search of doors in the wall - Carnivals & Saturnalia - enlightenment now!
