Terry Day was a founder member of the People Band and its pre-cursers in the 1960s. He subsequently worked with several leading improvisers such as Maarten Altena, Derek Bailey, Fred van Hove, Maggie Nicols, John Russell and John Stevens. He was a member of numerous groups including the Four Pullovers, Alterations, the Promenaders, Company, Kahondo Style and the Loverly Band. His activities were curtailed since from 1987 to 2000 due to ill health. Before that he was a compelling force on a wide variety of instruments, as can be heard on this collection recorded from 1978 to 1981.

The instruments played by Terry Day on this CD include: piano, keyboards, alto & soprano saxophones, bamboo pipes, drums, percussion, cello, mandolin, home made instruments, balloons, toys (blowers, whackers & pluckers), African thumb piano, voice, Chinese flutes, plastic trumpet, and a Michel Waisvisz crackle box. PETER CUSACK plays guitar (on 14 & 20 only) and DAVEY PAYNE tenor saxophone (on 26 only).

[Toying with the idea of multi-tracking during the 1970s, 1978 arrived. The initial aim was to use a 24-track system plus technical assistance (optimism). My thanks to the Arts Council of Great Britain for providing finances to record and to Steim Studio who provided a 4-track and further finances. Also thanks to Nico Bes who taught me to 'do it myself' and press buttons. 'With a hiss, a click, and a drop in; "clodhoppers and exquisites"; the birth pangs begin' - and the goat tends to eat everything with equal pleasure and taste.
