"Partymucke" was originally written for Peter Zadek's Andi theatre-play in which Neubauten performed live 50 times during 1987.
The Maifestspiele section of "Fiat Lux" contains field recordings from a demonstration in Kreuzberg, Berlin on May 1, 1987.
"Ein Stuhl In Der Hölle" and the Hirnlego section of "Fiat Lux" were later included as part of their Strategies Against Architecture II collection.
The cover art is based on a woodcut by German Renaissance artist Hans Baldung Grien.
