Zeitzeichenorchester’s members are all anagrams of AT’s name; the same applies to cover artist Tina Tuschemess. Producer Rokko Ekbek is of course Okko Bekker.

09 Cinéma vérite (Andreas Hoffmann) – voice. »Cinéma vérite« being one of numerous pseudonyms of Andreas Hoffmann; see name index for other work. – The track was re-released as B 69.
11 The title (»Extinct hearts«) is some kind of answer to Michael Rother and his LP FLAMMENDE HERZEN (»Flaming hearts«, 1981).

The persons shown in the CD-booklet are Martin Peinemann (with 3-D-glasses) and Andreas Hoffmann.

Description
Dense, dissonant »Pseudo-Pop« similar to AT’s other Sky releases; probably the best of the »Zeitzeichen«-albums.
