Notes

A1 and A2 were originally released in 1978 as separate single A sides. B was originally released in 1977.
'Hiroshima Mon Amour' is an edited version of the track found on the 'Ha! Ha! Ha!' LP.
The group name on this single cover is raised and has a slight sheen compared to the otherwise matt card sleeve.
A different version of this raised lettering can be found on the 2 x 7"-see notes there.

    "Quiet Men", "Slow Motion" and "Hiroshima Mon Amour" were released by their former label Island Records as a cash-in single after the band achieved major chart success. The same three tracks were also featured on the Island release "3 Into 1" which was a compilation of the bands work between 1977/1978. The new "classic" lineup were unhappy about Island cashing in on their new found fame and deliberately sabotaged the sleeve by making it as terrible as they could. (Credit: The Astradyne Cafe)
