A short EP taster for the 1997 album Larme de Crocodile, these four tracks differ slightly from their album versions. "Tiny King Kong" is a nice deep house track illuminated by Coba's treated accordion and bubbling electronics. Momus' "Loop Mix 2" of "Lolitapop Dollhouse" doesn't seem that much different from the original; the guitars seems a bit higher in the mix, but it's still not as punchy as it could be. "Superfreak" is another Coba song, and this acoustic version is preferable to the album: The melody is more pronounced, and the arrangement for accordion, congas, and guitar work very well. "David Hamilton," one of Momus' best melodies, here features only Karie singing (Laila France joins her on the album).
