[A1]: Steve Parry plays drums. Martin comes on like Donna Summer. The nearest thing to a statement of intent yet - our signature tune.
[A2:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Ian plays cardboard tube guitar. In which our roots are showing
[A3:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Martin plays clavinet and percussion. Baffins play themselves. There are more important things in the world than rock 'n' roll. The preservation of our natural heritage is one. Give generously to our Baffin Appeal. (It's the right one, it's BAFFIN)
[A4:] Steve Prattle plays drums. Paul Jones plays harmonica. Graham Chapman says hello and goodbye. A nasty horrible song about a sordid and unnatural love affair, with religion and ironmongering briefly touched upon.
[A5:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Paul Jones plays harmonica. Martin plays vibes. Trigger plays himself. A song to do nothing to
[A6:] Stan Parry plays drums. A nasty, impassioned plea from the heart.
[Accountancy Blues:] Jamie Crompton sur la batterie. Martin plays ARP tuba and sings lead vocal. Danny Goodwin and the Starlets attempt backing vocals. He's got the blues 'cos he's in the red. We have a good time and take the nautical way out.
[B1:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Martin plays piano and percussion. Rock 'n' roll it is then.
[B3:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Martin plays piano and organ. A holiday song with little meaning but a lot of energy.
[B4:] Steve Parrot plays drums. Jamie Crompton plays syndrums. Andy sings Vocoder vocals. Martin plays ARP bass and synthesiser. A miserable song - woe is us, you might say.
[B5:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Chris Gent plays sax. Andy plays harmonica. The Red Army Boys Choir sing backing vocals. We've got it right this time - (wait for the country version on the next album)
[B6:] Jamie Crompton plays drums. Chris Gent plays sax. Ian plays acoustic guitars (left) and percussion. Andy plays hammer and flight case. Martin plays acoustic guitars (right), piano, percussion and synthesiser. Backing vocals by the Quasimodo Brothers. A tale of unrequited teenage love, in which our hero comes out on top.
[B7:] Andy plays ARP synthesiser. Goodnight

Engineered by Steve Waldman and John Rollo
Recorded at Riverside Studios, Regent Park Sound and Konk Studios, June and July 1978.
