Album Title on Back Side

Come is 1's only album. The band had been signed by Paul Kantner to Grunt Records.[1] Pat Ieraci was assigned to help produce the album, and encountered the lead singer, named Reality D. Blipcrotch, demanding such things as a marijuana leaf popping out of the record, and the record self-destructing at the end of side B.[1]

The keyboardist of the band, Roger Crissinger, had previously played with Pearls Before Swine. The drummer, Mark Baker, would later drum with Ministry on the album Houses of the Molé.
