Originally formed with the intention of being a live band by Angela Conway (A.C. Marias), Bruce Gilbert (Wire, Dome, Duet Emmo), Graham Lewis (Wire, Dome, Duet Emmo, He Said), David Tidball (Turning Point), and Peter Price, P'o hastily recorded the 1983 album "Whilst Climbing Thieves Vie For Attention" when Peter Price announced plans to emigrate.
The album begins with the laid back Time and Time. If it were not for the industrial noises that appear, this might pass for a pop track. The simple lyric from Graham, coupled with Conway's ghostly vocal textures create an effective 'voice', something of a contrast to the previous Dome release. Back to Back is less melodic but more energetic, highlighting Price's ethnic drumming style which appears in several other tracks.
