Greatest Hits

Anyone know the deal here? What's the intention and where does this stuff come from?

I'm too lazy to find out for myself. Please help.

It says on the back, a "bitter compilation by the most secret, unique, yet biggest cult band this England has ever known."

It intentionally avoids anything like Hits! (Is This the Life, Tarred and Feathered)
I would guess for Tim and co. it was a chance to take some songs out of their usual context, and shine a different light on them -?

Greatest Hits was the first Cardiacs album i bought.

Jeezus that was an introduction i can tell you. Definitely not the best way to get ' into ' a band, as other Greatest Hits are supposed to be.
