A children's fantasypop album produced by
Richard Preston & Louis Philippe.
All the tracks marked * were written by Louis.
The recording sessions took place at the Sound Suite, Camden, and
the mix was supervised by Richard Preston. Louis arranged all selections
except 4, 8 (Momus) and 14 (Simon Turner) - and actually played
all the instruments on the record - with the exception of the drums,
hit to great effect by a new-ish "regular", Mr. Andy Lymn
of Nottingham, who was also called to perform on two later projects
masterminded by Mike Alway and chaperoned by Louis and Richard...Namely,
Loveletter - the great psychedlic comeback of none other
than the King of Luxemburg in another guise - and Zap the World,
a compilation album which drew most of its material and/or inspiration
from sixties and seventies movies such as Beyond The Valley Of
The Dolls and Orson Welles' F For Fake. Both albums had
been commissioned by Shoichi Kajino of l'Appareil Photo, who has
promised to release the results before the year is over...Pour Louis
completists, Zap will be of particular interest, since this
compilation includes 4 compositions written specifically for this
