Additional Notes

Athletico Spizz 80's 'Where's Captain Kirk' is prefaced by an uncredited version of 'Clocks Are Big' (total combined time: 3:21). The venue credits on the CD differ to the credits on the LP (i.e. dates and venues don;t always match) - I suspect the CD dates/venues are incorrect so have not bothered listing them.
