Sleeve note:

This is the sixth album by Not The Midnight Mass. The First two albums were released on cassette and copies that have survived are now collector's (sic) items. Even the People who saw those first midnight performances by the original line up of Christine Weir, Natalie Gamsu, Alan Glass and Graham Weir, have become collector's (sic) items. Much has changed since that autumn of 1988 when NTMM stepped onto the stage of the old Black Sun Theatre in Johannesburg, and into the hearts of South African theatre audiences. Back in those dark days a capella groups were rare. In fact many people thought that a capella was a city in South America. Not The Midnight Mass changed all that.

A whole new generation of theatre goers has been introduced to NTMM's unique brew of satire and harmonies. Indeed, for many folk, going to see a new Mass season has become as much a South African institution as service delivery protests, or a visit to the UIF.

Yours in theatre
