Anmerkungen

First single from The Cure released in December 1978 on Small Wonder Records.
Two months later, it was reissued in UK on Fiction Records, the new label created by Chris Parry, and in Ireland on Polydor.

The lyrics of "Killing An Arab" are inspired by a scene from the book "L'Etranger" (The Stranger) by Albert Camus.
Emblinded by the desert light, Meursault takes a flask for a gun and kills mistakenly a Bedouin.

The Cure always stood against any racist consideration:
In 1979, the book "The Stranger" was sent to media by Polydor during the promo campaign.
In 1986, a sticker on North-American releases says:
"The song Killing An Arab has absolutely no racist overtones whatsover.
It is a song wich decries the existence of all prejudice and consequent violence.
The Cure condemn its use in furthering anti-Arab feeling."

The song was renamed as "Kissing An Arab" through the summer festivals 2005.
In 2011, it became "Killing Another" on their Bestival live LP.
