In the words of "Alternative Sounds" creator & producer, Martin Bowes who mastered & compiled the album & its predecessors in his studio The Cage:
"The first time I ever sang on stage... if you can call it that... a while before ATTRITION was born... was at my 21st birthday party, at the old Hope n Anchor pub in Coventry in 1979... I had local punk band The Wild Boys play that night... their single at the time was "We're only Monsters" (written by The Specials' Roddy Radiation)... I got up on stage and sang "We're only Martin's"... I was very drunk... :)"
