      I learned recently of the term "motorik" given to a type of rhythm, especially used by German band Neu!. Of course many punk or post-punk bands used this sort of rhythm in some of their songs and "Pretty Vacant" is one such song I think.

          My copy has labels transposed (ie No Fun side plays Pretty Vacant and vice versa).
          Always wondered how many of these were issued - never heard a reference for it anywhere.

            My copy has the Variant 3 matrix numbers, but the labels are wrong (sides are swapped).
