The band were all working day jobs during recording.This album led to the band becoming more popular and becoming full-time musicians.

The title track tells the story of the New Australia Colony established in Paraguay in 1893 by a group of Australians led by William Lane, seeking a fresh start on "virgin ground" to establish a utopian society. Other tracks offer bleak insight into current social issues including chronic unemployment, the plight of migrant women, foreign domination of Australian business and government, and the apathy of 'middle Australia'. "Women in Change" features the last 4 stanzas from Lesbia Harford’s poem "Periodicity", commenting on a woman's menstrual cycle.
