The title of this one is a slight joke in an attempt to pair this cassette with its visual counterpart, "The Persistence of Vision", issue no. 14 of the 'zine PhotoStatic. Containing contributions by many of our "usual suspects", this collection shows a continuing dependence on proto-Tape-beatle works by later members of the group. This is supported by an ongoing commitment from visual artists from PhotoStatic's pages making a foray into sound work as well (Minóy, And/Was), as well as contributions from other sound artists and notables.
