exactly like i said: the cover art aswell as the record label(s) in this series of graphics have been created by edmund batterbee. i just combined them with the rest of the artwork to finalize the concept.
afaik a few more tracks, like "black hole door", for instance, have also been mentioned before. personally, i am missing "questions of happiness", which is one of my personal favourites.
LMFP, for instance, is a wonderful little track marian wrote last year (i think), and - of course - he provided me with the lyrics.

What about Temple Girl ? was it a real working studio track, or just a title you used on your own to illustrate Moonbase ? ( I still have the caption, yes yes :) )

I took another look at that "retro cover" and had to laugh about "Over the Hills and Far Away." Somehow, the thought of MG covering a Led Zeppelin tune (though that probably wouldn't be the case) got a chuckle out of me.

Don't know if he'd ever really do that one, though.

same title, different song. alphaville's 'over the hills' is not a cover. it is one of the tracks that were initially supposed to appear on CROG. OTHAFA has been (if i remember i right) the opener for the album. Back then it was not a ballad.
