Travelogue II was released in December 2000 and is an extended re-release of the Travelogue album from 1994. The two final tracks of that original CD were replaced with four tracks from a never released sixth album, amounting to about 30 minutes of new material in total.

Like most of the tracks on the original album, the new songs also feature guest musicians, notably Rodrigo González of German punkpop trio Die Ärzte - he contributed bass guitar and some cool samples to two of the tracks.

The front cover is a drawing by the late legendary French comic strip artist Jean Giraud AKA Moebius - one of the rare occasions where he agreed to the use of one of his drawings by another artist. It originally appeared in the colour edition of "The Airtight Garage Of Jerry Cornelius".

Travelogue II was produced and distributed in the United States by Soleilmoon Recordings, who originally started out as a cassette label and have been active in the Underground and Industrial Music scene since 1987. They are home for many of The Legendary Pink Dots' recordings, amongst many fine others from the likes of Merzbow or Muslimgauze or Coil.

The CD has been out of print for many years now, but a few copies are still available on Bandcamp, as well as wav or flac files in lossless quality.

"Don't Look 'til It's Gone" is a collaboration with The Legendary Pink Dots, with lyrics and vocals by Edward Ka-Spel. In 2012 Edward released a wonderful new version of it as a bonus track on the re-release edition of his 1991 solo album Tanith And The Lion Tree:


Around 2010 'Virgil Pink' uploaded two wonderful videos with tracks from Travelogue II on YouTube. The first one is for "Eject!":

The second one is for "Don't Look 'til It's Gone"; the film used for it is an amazing short called "Nuit Blanche" by Arev Manoukian - slightly modified and edited to fit with the song:
