Limited edition of 20000 copies with lenticular print on the front of the sleeve.

This is the initial release which had the image of Joh Bjelke-Petersen on the inner sleeve artwork. Another limited edition was inadvertently created when the band was forced to remove this image. Petersen was the subject of the album's sixth track, "Nuclear Device (The Wizard of Aus)". See The Raven for the version without the banned image.

Half the songs on this album among them Dead Loss Angeles, Nuclear Device, Shah Shah a Gogo, and Genetix spout verses critical of social or political issues. Only the first of these four numbers, with its clipped vocal delivery and stripped-down, bass-heavy arrangement, shows significant British punk influence.
