Notes

The 'sleeve' is a single piece of card.

Recorded at W.M.R.S., Leamington Spa.

Stickers quoting 'The Defendants' have been placed over original references to 'School Meals' on the sleeve and the label, suggesting that the band was called 'School Meals' at some point.

School Meals were from Coventry I think and 'Headmaster' features in the series of 'Messthetics' CD's (the one featuring Midlands bands) put out in the last few years on an american label.They ran into trouble with their name from a restaurant chain and in the legal correspondence that followed were referred to as 'the defendants' so they thought it a bit of a wheeze to change their name to reflect this !!Copies of their record (available in HMV Oxford Street I seem to recall) were either withdrawn or had the sticker with the new name 'Defendants' put on them some without the sticker slipped through the net however. The song was championed by John Peel.
