    Artist Commentary

    "I remember holding a microphone to an old dark grey plastic telephone to get the sample of the "speaking clock". There was no desired time we wanted, anything would have been ok, but 8-55 was the only one we correctly fitted into the limited memory of our Akai S900 sampler without chopping the end off. And the track title... well that came from the fact that it was 5 minutes to 9, '529'." - Mike Golding (2007)
