Their third album from 1983. Described by producer Adrian Sherwood as "experiments in active frequencies, out of time noises, rhythms within rhythms, and endless tape edits".

More so than most that make the claim, African Head Charge could truthfully make the assertion at this stage in their career that the music they were making was a genre unto itself, defying categorisation. Loose echoes of traditional African percussion music, field recordings and roots reggae inform the mix, whilst some parts conjure up the stripped-back post-rock of Can or Tortoise.
