Source: Alpha-Beat / MP3 tag reads ‘SYNTHETIC LUNACY MASTER’.

 

12 Technossomy – The Pyramid (Flying Saucer Nonsense Mix) 10:08
Source: Alpha-Beat / More or less same structure and sounds as the released version. However it has many unique elements also, like the voice sample saying “lets not start that flying saucer nonsense again”. So is an alternate mix, or better is the same mix, 25-30 seconds shorter and without the samples.

14 Technossomy – Unknown 8:33
December 1995 / Comes from a DAT tape that James Monroe & Dominic (Lamb) copied for Max Etnica on the 18th Dec 1995

 

15 Technossomy – Ursuland 8:25
1994-95 / source: DAT / The tag on the MP3 file posted on elisteningpost.com reads ‘Ursuland 44’.

 

16 Technossomy – V.T.O.L. (Full Length Mix 2) 12:37 (DAT) 12:26 (Alpha-Beat)
Source : Alpha-Beat and a French DAT / MP3 tag from Alpha-Beat reads ‘V.T.O.L. LIMTD RE-MASTRD’. The track is very close to V.T.O.L. (Full Length Version) from “Make it Fit”. The versions on Make It Fit (vinyl and CD) are otherwise identical, except that the ’12” Kojak Edit’ (less than 9 minutes) omits 3:37 of the intro and starts directly from the full speed kick part. The CD version has duration 12:34. The album versions have some of the initial and final creaks (cross-)faded, which explains 20 (or 30, see below) +17 seconds of its shorter duration. The first 6 minutes until the major drop are essentially identical to the CD versions. Then we have roughly 3:30 of differently paced and mixed middle synths. CD version’s are 14 seconds longer here. The final 2-minute mayhem after the second “Hard at work” sample is identical again. The full length version has 1 minute of plain creaks at the beginning and 22 seconds at the end. Those parts are probably shortened on many compilations, but no melodic content is missing. Apparently the only difference between the album versions (on labels Flying Rhino vs. Lyrical Robots) is that in LR the track border mark before V.T.O.L. is 11 seconds later. Therefore some of its intro can be heard in ‘Skinflint”s end. Track duration change from 8:50/11:43 to 9:01/11:32, but the music does not change.
