OTHER NOTES
This album was recorded in 1996 by Russell Mills and two members of Miasma.  Mills and Miasma took sounds contributed by several artists and mixed them together into a rich textured sound.  One of those contributors was The Edge, who played chase guitar for this album.  The sounds recorded are used throughout the album, and the songs are not broken down by artist who contributed where, so it is impossible to say which specific tracks may have a sound sample of Edge mixed in, or if all of them may have some music contributed by the Edge.  You can hear what I think is the Edge, very plainly on the track Stone's Eggs.

The album was initially released on the em:T record label in 1996, under the title Undark 3396, which was a reference to its catalog number.  In 2000 Mills rereleased the album on Bella Union in the UK and Instinct in the USA under its original title Undark One: Strange Familiar.  This rerelease featured very different artwork than the original release.
