Lonely one-off release from London musician Desmond Simmons who saw his catchy pop / post-punk arrangements subjected to the production torture techniques at the hands of Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis.  Traditional songs are distilled down and weight-stripped down to their barest arrangements, augmented with tape loops and atmospheric guitar skits.  Supremely overlooked, cult recordings from the Dome orbit..
