NIK TURNER

INNER CITY UNIT - PASSOUT

OFFICIAL BOOTLEG


Notes & details:

This is a private cassette release from Nik Turner which is part of a series of tapes called "Official Bootleg".
The cassette contains a straight-from-vinyl recording of the deleted
Passout
LP on Riddle label (1980) with a bonus track.
Same order as on vinyl but the LP has "Brainstorm" ending side 1 while this tape has side 1 filled with tracks from side 2 of LP.
End of side 2 has a few minutes of "parasite" flute from the Pyramid Aflutenik tape.

All tapes in this series are plain black with no labels; no titles and credits on cover, just the handcut covers (my scan above).
Nik Turner made these tapes to be sold at gigs and from his mail address (no exact date but around 1995).

The only reference on the web to some of the tapes is on the Hawkwind Discussion List (apparently offline now).

- Nuclear Waste is a ICU remake of the track recorded in 1977 by the Radio Actors, a one-off project which included Nik.
- Help Sharks: bonus track not on original album.
