Recording info: Recorded @ Berry Street Studios, London in January 1985. Engineered by Bill Gill, except "Atom Bomb Baby" by Steve Forward. Produced by Peter Watts. Mixed by Bill Gill and Brad Grisdale.

Note 1: Back cover lists "It Came From Out Of The Sky" as the first track of side 2, but actually "Hell Beach" is the first. (*)written by John Fogerty [Creedance Clearwater Revival]. This mix of these tracks has never been released on CD.

Note 2: In 1985 the band had a falling out with their label Au-Go-Go which from that moment on resulted in several parallel releases on the band's new label Karbon and several repackagings/compilations on Au-Go-Go. In this case Au-Go-Go managed to secure copies of the multi track recordings and mixed them without any involvement of the Scientists or their producer, Peter Watts.
