[Antoine] "5.8.6 was originally written as an experiment by Stephen Morris for the opening of Fac 51, the Hašienda, in 1981. It first appeared on several Factory videos, as a backing music for shots of the club in construction. The song was split in three parts, Touch released in 1983 two of them on the Featuremist tape. The last part (part two) was found in early 1997, and made it to the compilation Touch Sampler T_ZERO_2."

Q: Does 586 mean anything?
A: Peter Hook has said that the key to the title, 586, is to be found in the song Ecstasy, the bar-structure of Ecstasy is 5-bar, 8-bar, 6-bar...

There was also a poster issued with the catalogue number Touch 7P.
