Notes

On labels: Made in the EEC

The band name is listed as 'Bananamen' on the sleeve and 'The Bananamen' in the labels.

A heading on the back sleeve reads "Bananamen play songs made popular by The Cramps", which is sometimes given as the name of this 7".

The sleeve notes indicate that the Bananamen tracks are re-discovered "...curios to come out of the sixties garage culture...from 1965", but with the band members listed as "Exterior" Dec, "Poison" Pick, "Kongo" Keith and Al Knocks (being a pun for Lux Interior, Poison Ivy, Kid Congo Powers and Nick Knox, in other words The Cramps but this is actually a practical joke by The Sting-Rays.
