The album[edit | edit source]

The album is notable for the single "Steaming Porthmadog", which launched the band to its fame, and the controversial song "Science Rock", which criticizes the popularity of Science rock in north Wales. It was well received by critics in the US and UK, being called "a rare piece of true industrial that is rarely seen outside of Germany nowadays". However, it was accepted poorly in Germany, being called a "KMFDM ripoff". The title track is a charity song urging people to donate to the Ffestiniog Railway.
