    "What a World" is by Robin and Valek, as stated on the original 7" EP and I think the mini-CD by Last Chance Records in 1989. Valek and I made the rhythm track with my Z80 home-built computer (as used in Equal Local), at my home. This was two tracks, I think, on a Teac 3340S 4-track reel-to-reel tape. Valek took the tape and brought it back a week or so later with his marvelous vocals, JP-8 and other synth sounds on the other two tracks. He named it too – all the words are his, not least "Living life in real-time's hard to do . . . .", while cranking down the speed of an RE-201 Space Echo! The Informatics were about to release an EP (7" vinyl) but had only three tracks, so we contributed the fourth.

    This song is widely regarded as by the Informatics. It is not, but if it had not hitched a ride on Dezinformatsiya, it would probably only have been heard by a handful of people.
