The disc was re-issued in limited numbers in Australia as a 2-CD set which included the You Got Me A Girls Bike You Idiot! EP. This double CD Issue was first released with picture discs identical to the original releases (of How It Works and You Got Me A Girl's Bike You Idiot!), then subsequently with silver discs.
EMI also released the 2CD version of How It Works with Plastic Skies as a double album promotion in August 2005. Both albums were in their own jewel cases with full original artwork, and both were silver discs. They were packaged together in a card slipcase.
