"Although the Nu Dub Players did exist in some form or another, for the new record hardly any electronic tools were applied. As a consequence, around 15 musicians from Auckland,New Zealand, Sydney and Melbourne, Australia and Cologne and Berlin participated in making this exotic folk-funk reggae hybrid. Mostly recorded under ozone layers this fascinating blend of styles and sounds always keeps you on the edge of your seat. The title-track 'Fuck Back' features singer and performing artist Theo Altenberg from Berlin. He was a member of the Viennese Otto Mühl Commune. Know for his photographs documenting the life of the commune from 1973-1978, he states:' Communal life was a life of intense psychological self-admiration, cut off from the outside world; there, the most diverse forms of free love and the sexual culture were played out. The potential released by this was converted into screenplays, photographic works and paintings- giving rise to new social utopias, researching democracy and analyses of language and substitution.' According to Altenberg, the commune was 'owned by the most consistently leftist practise, because we had made communal ownership a reality and had overcome petty rivalry, because we interpreted revolt as hedonism and were united by psychoanalytical theory.'"
