Vital Weekly is an e-mail magazine, which appears 48 times a year and has the latest CD-reviews and news on concerts and festivals. Vital started in 1987 as magazine on paper. It's simple xeroxed form ensured a free copyright and everybody was encouraged to make copies and distribute them freely. Up until 1995 44 issues were made and with the arrival of the Internet, Vital changed into a pure review newsletter and since then it appears weekly. It was hosted by Staalplaat for ten years.

The main person behind the Vital Weekly is Frans de Waard who was actually Staalplaat's ideologist. Here is what mr. Waard wrote about our release (the original can be found under Vital Weekly #634, week 27):

Now here's a highly puzzling release. Xiiora is one Oswald Gee, the famous author of 'Encyclopedia Of Harsh', born in Eastern Island, killed later on. How it relates to this music I don't know. Or who made it. Even more curious is that the release contains only two very short tracks, so that the whole thing is about five minutes. Both pieces are held together by a stomping, mechanical rhythm machine. In the first piece there is some sighing while the second seems to be just the straight forward machine. Highly conceptual, but it's all a bit beyond me. Hard to understand.
