Com diu la contra-portada del disc:
"Recorded in Roma in March 1981. This is the last studio recording by Throbbing Gristle […] It was recorded in five days, a day per body section. No tracks were re-recorded or added to after their day. Each was mixed immediately after recording. No tracks were pre-planned, all tracks are invented directly onto the tape. This record is dedicated to TG, now a terminated mission. […]"
