(Above, a dreadful photo of the foldout wraparound poster. Just so you know, that's
Mike Green from Boat Of pictured therein. He wasn't in POI.* The top liner notes were stolen word-for-word from the second Chicago album. The bottom "thank you" bullshit was purloined from a now-forgotten metal album. And there you are - instant doom.)

(Brilliant gay porn clip art and LED font sleeve design for the 1996 reissue by Syd Garon, a longtime friend of TLASILA, an erstwhile member of the monumentally cool Frosty, and an award-winning, busy-ass filmmaker. The folks at Fused Coil nearly shat themselves. Not happy at all. But, to their credit, they allowed us to commit suicide.)

No explanations. We were loved by few, but time seems to have been on our side. Or, at least time finally fucking passed out.

*(Mike eventually performed with POI on two occasions; in 1989 in Athens, GA, and in 1991 in Atlanta.)
