From the depths of the Children of the Bong archive comes Not Sirius, the final instalment of the duo's previously unreleased hidden gems.

While some tunes missed the cut for Sirius Sounds only due to the limited time allowed by CD and vinyl, others were created for one-off live performances and TV shows. For instance, Babylon 3 & Babylon 4 were created for the TV show 'Hotel Babylon', broadcast on the UK's Channel 4, while the opener, Eleven Dimension Super Gravity, was created for a live performance at the Whirl-y-gig club night in London in 1995 and was played during the magical parachute dance that closes the evening.

Children of the Bong were formed in the early 1990s by Rob Henry and Daniel Goganian and soon found acclaim for their fiery acid melodies and earthy dub rhythms, with Melody Maker describing them as creating 'the perfect soundtrack for a swirling lightshow'. They released one album, Sirius Sounds, on Planet Dog Records in 1995, as well as a couple of tracks on the label's compilations and a Peel Session recorded for BBC Radio 1.

Not Sirius finds its home on Disco Gecko Recordings, which neatly closes a circle as label owner Toby Marks (AKA Banco de Gaia) was one of the first to recognise Children of the Bong's talents, asking them to support him on his 1994 UK tour - when the earlier material on this album would have been played live! The label is also home to 100th Monkey, AKA Andy Guthrie, who helped produce Sirius Sounds.

It's time to get Sirius again .............. NOT!
