CD1, October Rush, renews the group's acquaintance with former members of B Shops For The Poor - Jon Dobie (guitar) and John Edwards (double bass), and also introduces some new collaborators, Glenn Gupta and Dave Tucker on electronics. This one track CD is a heady mixture of composition, electronica, intense drum beats and improvisation.

CD3, An Affair Of Cyphers, is a showcase for the classic saxophone ensemble writing of David Petts, with the addition of Sue Lynch on tenor sax and flute, and Caroline Kraabel on alto and baritone sax..This CD also introduces new experiments in texture, with pieces for larger ensembles.
CD4, The Fiction Department, is the long awaited follow- up to Sudden Rooms In Different Buildings, and is the classic Remote Viewers trio, performing songs and featuring the haunting vocals of Louise Petts.
CD5, Situations, is a set of solo soprano saxophone improvisations by Adrian Northover, including live recording, overdubbed and processed pieces."-The Remote Viewers
