Dark Entries and Emotional Rescue team up to further explore Psychic TV's Acid House years. Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle with Alex Fergusson of Alternative TV in 1981. After various line up changes, the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the House and Techno scenes of Detroit and Chicago.

By 1988 the group included Dave Ball of Soft Cell, Fred Giannelli of Turning Shrines and Matthew Best of Carcrash International. During the summer of 1988 the group recorded a batch of songs at Time Square Studios in London that would appear under the guise of various artists compilations Jack The Tab' and 'Tekno Acid Beat'. The idea behind these 'compilations' of imaginary artists was creating a sense that a healthy acid house scene existed in the UK.

Virginia was the studio project of Dave ‘Mista Luv' Ball and then-wife Virginia ‘Gini' Ball, a classical violinist who toured and recorded with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Marc Almond. The duo had previous collaborated on Dave's solo album 'In Strict Tempo' in 1983 and with the group Other People in 1984. The name "Blue Pyramid" was inspired by a photograph from Pink Floyd's album 'Dark Side of The Moon'. Also at the time Dave was taking quite a lot of acid and came across some stuff ironically called "Blue Pyramid".
