But this was probably post NE, and certainly not in 85/86 timeframe when
the That Total Age recordings were made. Do you know if he had the 100m
back then? I mentioned the 2600 because A)it sounds like it and B)Many
first albums of mute acts used Daniel Miller's equipment, and the 2600
usually got pulled into synth percussion duties.

Regardless of the percussion synth, I'd bet money that the Xpander entered
into their sound around the time that Flood (the quintessential Xpander
master) took over production duties, which would be just after That Total
Age.
