More info:

From Lance's original J Church website: "This came out in conjunction with a jaunt across the Pacific. On Dying Alone is a wasted love song, About The She is about television in Tokyo, You Almost Feel Sad about getting a divorce and As I Lie... about a bike messenger getting crushed to death by a municipal bus."

The two tracks not mentioned by Lance are both covers. Not Given Lightly was originally by Chris Knox from the New Zealand band The Tall Dwarves and Living With The Dreaming Body was first recorded by Poi Dog Pondering. "We love them so much, we didn't actually ask permission" says the sleeve. It adds "About as close to a double album as we can get right now".

The first three songs are on the lime-green (almost luminous) vinyl, the last four are on the pale blue. Reed drummed on everything except the title track.
