Tracks are named after known electronic music composers. "The names of the musicians ... do not stand for actual people, but rather for musical phenomena and the interpretations that go along with them - especially within the prevalent 'crossover' discourse between music and the fine arts." (Quoted from the insert). Music has been recorded in 2 hours with cheap equipment and is supposed to be a kind of parody of styles the named artists are known for.

Record contains no music at all by named artists. Liner Notes by Diederichsen have been copied without permission from another source.

Limited and numbered edition copies.

Sale of the record has been withdrawn by lawsuit by two of the mentioned artists. Approximately 150x copies have been distributed, after the sentence a handful of censored copies and a few copies without cover have been released. Rest of the edition has been destroyed.
