Liner Notes:

KINKDOM is a land populated exclusively by mods who wear shoulder-length hair which droops, boots, guitars who twang, and baby doll eyes which turn you on and on and on. Inhabitants of this land have to go dancing every night except Monday. Mondays they are all busy repairing their discotheques. The national heroes of this land are named Pete, Ray, Mick, and Dave. This land's national anthems are heard in this very thumping, very thousand watt album. It is a land entirely free from waltzes, acne, grinds, anemia, eggplant, curfews, alarm clocks, violins, loneliness, diets, make-up exams, squares, callouses, and losers. It is a land so wild, so fantastic, so far out that about it even Rand is scared to tell McNally.
