From the back cover:
A FEW HANDY THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS ALBUM
In A Rut/H-Eyes...
Our first single recorded at Fairdeal 8-track studio in Hayes May '78. Originally to be released as an e.p. with a considerably slower version of Society on it til now on Misty's own label People Unite.
Staring At The Rude Boys/Love In Vain....
We included Love In Vain on this record because nobody listened to it as the B-side of Staring At The Rude Boys and in case you didn't hear the A-side....
Produced and engineered (for Dukeslodge Enterprises) at Air and Townhouse Studios February '80. Brass added later.
Demolition Dancing/Secret Soldiers....
Taken from the last John Peel session we did aound February '80. (Thanks to John and the BBC).
Produced, engineered on 8-track at Maida Vale Studios. This was the only occasion Secret Soldiers was recorded.
West One (Shine On Me)......
The backing track was recorded in a 16-track in Shepherds Bush, but we don't talk about it. The engineer was OK tho'.
Overdubs and mixing engineered at the Townhouse.
SUS/Babylon's Burning/Society....
Recorded live, CHORUS late 1979. Mixed live onto 2-track, so no overdubs whatsoever.

Titles S.U.S. and Secret Soldier used on the record's labels, but SUS and Secret Soldiers used on the back cover.
