The only "new" track recorded specifically for this release, and one of the few not culled from 4-track, 'YCD', (which stands for "you can't dance") still uses rather lo-fi source material. For the collaboration with the Implicit Order, I recorded a bunch of sound sources with an old hand-held tape recorder. During the process of editing and cleaning up the sound sources, I decided to use one of the recordings for this track. The full length version of the interview that serves as an introduction to abandon appeared in print in the final issue of Autoreverse Magazine. The tacked on breakbeat was meant as a joke. Laugh now.
