An EP of leftover tracks from the sessions that produced Live Outside the Purple Sauce Café - with the exception of 'What's So Cool About Ghosts', a short vignette recorded by Dana soon after the album's release.
The tracks are similar, if unrefined, to the styles and persuasions of its parent album; from the write-as-you-go thrillride of 'Well It's Not Really a Painting' to the dour post-punk statement of the title track. The outlier is the closer, 'Uppland Runic Inscription 13', a forlorn cracked drone of distant folk instruments and field recordings.
