The LP was released on Hansa'a Ariola label with number AHAL 8009. Recorded on either side of the arrival in power of Margaret Thatcher, it embodies a mature punk sensibility with echoes of mental instabililty, the madness of consumerism and urban decay. The band were on the bill at London's Marquee Club on Saturday 7 April 1979 and Friday 11 May 1979.[3]
