* this interview states that the sessions with Sakamoto were in January ’95, but Mark Prendergast’s interview listed above states January ’96. Sylvian said on the EPK ‘Time Spent’ that the record was released three years after the recording had started, and in an October 1994 interview with Craig Peacock Sylvian said recording would start at the end of 1995. I have adjusted the date to January ’96 to reflect my understanding of when the sessions took place.
