Hi Again,

I've had more than a few requests for this, so...

(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.)

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

(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/acknowledged/tolerated by few, but time seems to have been on our side. Or, at least time finally fucking passed out...
