More info:

The title track of this EP is the first of two re-recordings of that song - the other is on the Cat Food album. Da Da Da was originally a hit for the German pop group Trio in 1982 and was subsequently covered more famously by Elastica. The CD booklet and the 7" inlay feature pictures of nine punk and indie singles mocked-up as if they were J Church sleeves - one per track, exept for the first and fourth which share the cover picture.

My Favourite Place / Nothing City = I'm An Upstart by Anglic Upstarts
William Tell Suicide Note = Used, Abused, Unamused by Icons Of Filth
Young Mother = Throbbing Gristle by Throbbing Gristle
Da Da Da = Da Da Da by Trio
Traffic Jam = Disco Nation 45 by Bis
Parkas And Flags = 1st EP by Snuff
Desperation Every Other Night = Bingo-Master's Break-Out! by The Fall
You Feel Like A Fool = Once More by The Wedding Present

The ninth panel of the packaging - also on the CD artwork and the inlay behind the disc - is from Staring At The Rude Boys by The Ruts. The Fall single included the track Psycho Mafia, which J Church covered seven years later on the Seishun Zankoku Monogatari album.

Harriet sings on Da Da Da and You Feel Like A Fool.
