- One of the band's very first recordings, this four track recording bears a fair amount of similarity to the final version that appeared on 1990 album Flood but slightly different lyrics, and a lot more "out" improvisation.
- The line about "yelling out 'albatross'", which appears in both early versions as well as current live versions, is a reference to a sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus.
- Hiya Hi can be heard fading out faintly at the start of the official MP3, suggesting that this was sourced from an as-yet-uncirculated demo tape.
