Trivia[edit]

  • The CD version came in a card wallet, and was a 3-inch CD (rather than a standard 5-inch).
  • The 12" version featured the following side titles:
    • Side A: Motel Directive Wigue Wigue Wishnick
    • Side B: It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid
  • The cover art was done by Mark Marek, who also worked on the video for Istanbul (Not Constantinople).
  • The track listing on the vinyl release is incorrect; it claims For Science is found on side A, when the title track is actually followed by Untitled.
