HERE AND NOW

PAST MASTERS VOL. 1

MARCH 1976 TO SUMMER 1980

Recorded in a garden shed, B.B.C. Studios, and in a tent in W. Germany.
Produced by God.
Artwork: The Sergen.

Copyright does exist on this recording, but if you do copy it, just remember that you're ripping the band off -
c'mon, you can afford a fiver, can't you?


Notes & details:

- Addicted: start is cut.
- Bombshiva Shanka: aka "Bom Shiva Shanka".
- Soviet Commercial Radio: early version of "Floating Anarchy".
- Nere + How: cut before end.
- Fishbach Festival: also on Off The Cuff. "Last Chance"'s bass riff in the 1st jam. Read Keith's memories here.

This is a collection of previously unreleased material, except for Fishback Festival side, already on Off The Cuff.
The cover included a stapled 12-page booklet with notes by "Missile" about the recordings (my scans below).
No date release on cover or cassette. Here & Now's Myspace website has 1986 as date for this cassette.
