  • About This Album

    This limited-edition 12" vinyl single, features the Homeland album track "Only an Expert"—which Q calls "a bitingly satirical, genuinely funny, quietly angry and surprisingly danceable dissection on the very notion of subservience to expertise"—with the non-album track "Pictures and Things," featuring Antony Hegarty, on the flip side.

    This item is no longer available in the Nonesuch Store.
