Robot Woman 2 credits on poster give no precise date for the sessions but notes suggest the album was recorded from Winter 1981 to beginning of Summer 1982 (with Malherbe's overdubs done around the time of Glastonbury 1982 Festival).
This tape, originally entitled WFM (OT9), appeared for sale in 1982 from GAS on Whats Going On Gas 82 mag.
Reissued on cassette (early 90's), all this material except "13/8" and "Gliss-U-Well" remains unreleased on CD.
My copy has inverted sides (tracks listed on cover as side A are on B side of cassette).
