Issued with printed inner sleeve (lyrics and credits on both sides).
Also issued (on the original release) with full colour insert artwork (has now been provided in the Images section). The credit for this photo, according to the back cover notes, is either Annie Sprinkle or Chris Stein.

There are performer credits for Mick Harvey and Nick Cave on this album under a number of pseudonyms. These were coined by Lydia Lunch for Mick, who performed on this album as drummer, pianist and saxophonist, and for Nick, who was co-vocalist on "Done Dun" and "Dead In The Head". This pseudonym credits issue is covered, mainly from Mick's perspective, but with comment also from Lydia Lunch, in the Ian Johnston book "Bad Seed" (a biography about the musician and author Nick Cave), first published in 1995.

Murray Mitchell (who has the composer credit for the track "Done Dun") is listed as one of the "Points Of Interest" in the credits for this release. In the "Bad Seed" book cited above, Mitchell was slated to play first guitar and then bass on this release. His contributions are absent from the release itself.
