This disk compiles the entire back catalog and previously unreleased recordings of the combined Dutch/English underground label, MCCB (1978-82), and marks the first time any of these works have been issued on compact disk. Great efforts were made to locate, restore & re-master the original tapes, and the entire process was personally overseen by MCCB's chief, the legendary musician/singer Geoff Leigh. Under the auspices of The Black Sheep, Kontakt Mikrophoon Orchestra and Red Balune, Geoff is joined by long-time affiliates Loek VanSaus, Colin McLure and Kathy Williams. This is "pop" music gone terribly right for a change, where imagery supersedes fashion, and sound knows no rules. Features cameo appearances by members of Henry Cow: Fred Frith, Tim Hodgkinson and Chris Cutler.
