Notes:
"THEY ENTERED THE VORTEX AND THE DREAMS BECAME REALITY" is written on the back of every Jumpin' & Pumpin' edition.

The version of 'Papua New Guinea' is exclusive to the release.

The original 1991 release mis-spells "Central Industrial" as "Central Industrail".

Following the success of the 'Papua New Guinea' re-release in 1992, subsequent editions featured two bonus remixes and a full artwork booklet.

The 1996 American re-issue features a holographic cover.

The 2001 re-release was coordinated for the album's 10th anniversary, featuring a disc of 'Papua New Guinea' remixes.

In 2009, the album was one of the first to feature a 180g vinyl re-press on the Music On Vinyl label.

Written and produced by The Future Sound of London. 'Expander' produced by Mental Cube. 'Stolen Documents' produced by Luco. 'Calcium' produced by Luco, written by Yage. Artwork by Buggy G. Riphead.

Charts:
UK Album Chart: 75

Accelerator was the first full-length album by Dougans and Cobain, although it was as much a compilation as anything. 'Stolen Documents', '1 In 8', 'Pulse State' and 'Papua New Guinea' had already been released on various EPs as FSOL tracks, and 'Calcium' released as a Yage track. However, the tracks are all mixed together in a primative version of the soundscape technique they would come to use on their later albums. Stylistically, although very much in a 4/4 techno vein unusual to the band's later sound, the music here is largely more complex than many of the duo's early tracks: where Earthbeat featured mostly the more straight-forward, even poppy sounding pieces from the early era, Accelerator's tracks are mostly more dense, utilising layered breakbeats and elements of ambience.
