Recorded by the same line-up as the Roxy recordings at YMC studios in London, the demo was used by the band to hawk around to potential venues on cassette. The phone numbers on the cover were Charlie's number at his hairdressing salon and his home number (see picture below).

Pressed on thick clear plastic, only 5 copies of this EP were made by old Subs webmaster, Paul Mileman, one of which was auctioned on ebay for over £90.00, with the proceeds going to help children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986.
