The original idea for The Anti Group was devised by A. Newton and S. J. Turner as early as 1978, with the intention of the formation of a multi-dimensional research & development project active in many relatedareas. Research and development of sound, film, video and performance and the documentation of each project was the fundamental "modus operandi". Underlying this basic idea is the deeper philosophical and theoretical conceptuality; The Anti Group could be any given number of collaborators or participants. In this respect The Anti Group are free from the formats that have built in limitations, operating within this context The Anti Group are also free from the erroneous problems of Ego.
Audiophile contains eleven tracks from three singles and an EP, all long deleted. With the exception of "Broadcast Test" this is the first time these tracks have been issued on CD. All tracks have been remastered for this compilation.
