Notes

Recorded by Andy Partridge and released as Mr. Partridge. Originally issued between XTC's Drums and Wires and Black Sea, it was later made available on the CD Explode Together (The Dub Experiments '78-'80), which also included Go+.

"If you liked 'Go+' then this record weighs approximately the same amount," says Andy on the cover.

Side A is titled "Take Away" and side B "The Lure of Salvage." In Japan the LP was released under the name of Andy Partridge and the labels say on both sides "TAKE AWAY."

Recording Data:

"This used to be some XTC records. It is now a collection of tracks that have been electronically processed/shattered and layered with other sounds or lyrical pieces."

"Destructed/constructed at Regents Park Recording Company."

"All initial sound by XTC. Additional sound/lyrics by Andy Partridge. Put and take by John Leckie and Andy Partridge on 10.10.79. Alan Jakoby was the tapir."

Trivia:

Andy made Take Away totally royalty-free at a cost of 2,000 pounds, and asked Virgin to set the price low. Virgin sold the album with the maximum price of 3.99 pounds.

The cover picture is taken from a post card of Jayne Mansfield in a swimming pool. The figures floating on the water are hot water bottles shaped of her, some of which Andy scribbled out.

The original XTC songs used for the bases of this LP are:
"Commerciality (Signal Ad)" - "Refrigeration Blues" (an unfinished and unreleased track from White Music; the lyrics were a poem called "Signal Ad (Saleable Futurity)");
"The Day They Pulled the North Pole Down" - "Heatwave" ("This Is Pop?" single B-side);
"The Forgotten Language of Light" - the percussion track of "Millions" from Drums and Wires;
"Steam Fist Futurist" - "Real by Reel" from Drums and Wires;
"Shore Leave Ornithology (Another 1950)" - "Pulsing Pulsing" ("Making Plans for Nigel" single B-side), and was inspired by Charlie Parker's "Ornithology";
"Cairo" - "Homo Safari" ("Life Begins at the Hop" single B-side) with Marianne's handclapping;
"The Rotary" - improvised singing/yelling over stripped down "Helicopter" from Drums and Wires;
"Madhattan" - "That Is the Way" from Drums and Wires;
"I Sit in the Snow" - "Roads Girdle the Globe" from Drums and Wires;
"Work Away Tokyo Day" - the first part is original, and then all nine of Barry Andrews' sax parts from "Red" (Go 2) played simultaneously, followed by "Day In Day Out" (Drums and Wires) sped up very fast and with a new bass line; and
"New Broom" - "Making Plans for Nigel" from Drums and Wires.
