The creation of this album was the logical continuation of my work in Can's last years of active existence. It took me about 2 years to work this album out (1977-1979). I had an exiting time finding out how the different worlds of film or radio could meet in a piece of music as if they would have belonged together from the very beginning. And it was also a pleasure to play all instruments myself if only possible. I wished that music would become a perfect carrier to an imaginable new and visionary world and it should become a pleasure to the human ear to follow the music on this trip.

Special thanks encouraging me in getting on with my music by Reebop, who played spontaneously like a lightning, Michael Karoli, who helped dropping unecessary word, John Foxx of ULTRAVOX, who pushed me forward when I was going to give up. Conny Plank's eyes rested all time on the MCI-computerdesk (I switched off the computer) and let me do as much and as long I wanted. And finally to Christa Fast, a wonderful actor and cake baker. She didn't mind at all when I succeded so slowly.
