UFO by ESG would have probably been influenced by this I Wonder 21:40 by TBGMachine ;)

How can you tell which is the first?, first three seems to be identical, is it a matter of triple entries for the same record?

UFO ... Throbbing Gristle- Tanith.... Both are equally stark tunes in my bestest vocal opinion ...Its the name of the game.... ;)

I'm not in front of my (original) copy right now, but I could swear that the spine says both 99 Records and Factory Records - i.e. it's a split release. These Discogs entries make it seem like the 12" was on 99 and the 7" was on Factory, mutually exclusive to each other. Not so.

Edit: I now have it in front of me. It is definitely a split release 12". The spine says

This is probably the best EP of all time. Growing up in Brooklyn/Bed-Stuy in the 80's, UFO was one of the TOP 5 Uptown beats (i.e. hip-hop) of all time (slowed to 33rpm). We rocked Earn It also. As I got into house music a little later, I found out that Moody was a garage/house classic. So no matter what you're into, this EP has a classic for ya!
