'The title of this print is a quotation from Erik Satie. The top image is an enlarged version of a French lemonade bottle label. The words in the lower half were obtained by taking the first reference to music that I could find in Art Monthly (no.39 p.18) which had arrived by post that morning.’ (loc.cit.)
