"This collection of previously unreleased tracks by Daevid is representative of his period living in his home country of Australia, between 1982 and 1988 - the last piece being mixed the night before he returned to England [...]. Most of the songs and poems here involve other musicians too numerous to mention, but Daevid gratefully accepts their contribution to the continuing course of his musical journey."
