Notes

Printed insert sleeve contains a history of The Electric Circus venue and line-ups of the bands featured on the EP.

Some copies included a pink vinyl 7" version of John Dowie's "Another Close Shave".

Some copies included a dark blue promotional poster (folded in six segments) that contained a circuit diagram, band and location details, and the promotional blurb:

"First 5,000 colour pressed on fashionable blue vinyl. Electric Circus. In handy shoplifting size. 10" for £2.99. Out now on Virgin VCL5003"

The 7 inch was totally random - it was included with blue, black and even orange promo copies with the original catalogue number VCL 5003 and blue Virgin labels. Some of these randomly had an orange sticker to say there was an included 7 inch. Some had no sticker but still included the 7 inch. Some had a full promo poster with or without the 7 inch. It was utterly random.
