The tracks found on side B, "I Understand" and "A Man Has Responsibilities," are late-'90s re-recordings of "early 'Sandra' live favourites," according to Burnham. Whether or not they're of the same vintage as the flipside is not clear (these particular versions are certainly more developed). Soaked in fuzzy echo, O'Connor snarls and screeches like any properly disillusioned miscreant. Meanwhile, a live drummer by the name of Go Go Girl bashes away with exceptional focus. In terms of marrying brute strength to metronomic propulsion, these grinders share much in common with the cyborg noise-rock Six Finger Satellite churned out around the same time.
If you're interested in techno's historical and aesthetic ties to post-punk, this package makes for essential listening and reading. However, in terms of O'Connor's artistic evolution, the most recent offerings from Sandra Electronics, a self-titled 10-inch and "Cubs! Do Your Best" 7-inch, are light years ahead of anything heard here. This is as it should be.
