A recording of a live collaboration between Life of Work + Swing Jugend. This event took place "by the canal" underneath Saville Town bridge in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire on Sunday 8th February 1987.

Only side A of the original cassette release remains. Side B, a remix of the live recording is lost. The "B side" presented here was cut on 24th January 2016.

Not dedicated to James Anderton, of Greater Manchester Police, who in 1986 said "...homosexuals, drug addicts and prostitutes who had AIDS were "swirling in a cesspit of their own making"

"Thatcher, the then Prime Minister, privately backed Sir James's right to speak out - and stamped down demands for a public inquiry into the state of the force."
