This release was was a 10 track hand lathed 7" single on 1mm transparent vinyl, each track had a no longer duration that 1min each, taking the narrative of an album into it's most condensed form.

Most vinyl records are pressed from metal master discs, a technique known as lathe-cutting was introduced in the late 1980s by Peter King in Geraldine, New Zealand. A lathe is used to cut microgrooves into a clear polycarbonate disc. lathe cut records tend to degrade further in quality after repeated playing. this gives the vinyl a limited life and also gives it a unique sound.

The release came in too forms an original X-Ray and a antique Ordnance survey maps of Lancashire, each containing an individual riddle with no answer, and a comic insert.
