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.

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.
