The [back] cover of the album spells it "ecstacy" (sic), but the label on the Lydia Lunch side of the record spells it "ecstasy".

On my copy , the LL side , looks like track 2 (?) it has a strange looking dash dash pattern within the normal looking tracks grooves ?

Any way to get "The Agony Is The Ecstacy" alone? Preferably on CD.

Excellent 12", the live tracks (in my opinion) are superior to the studio versions (especially Sometimes Pleasure Heads which is superb). The version of 'Loose' is also excellent showing the band in all their stomping blazing chaotic glory (plus its not on the live 81-82 CD)
