From Lance's original J Church website: "We did a Peel session while in England. We had a DAT tape. We claim no responsibility as to what happened to that tape. I don't have it and I have no idea where it is. Good Judge Of Character - John Peel's pick as the "Yank sizzler destined to be a pop hit". Well, we all make mistakes... Really, a pop hit about prostitution? Everyone thinks that Priest is this really deep song. It's mostly about Tony's brother, who is a priest, in Saturday Night Fever."

This single features three of the five tracks which made up the session for John Peel on BBC Radio 1, first broadcast on 7 August 1993 and repeated on 4 February 1994. The other two songs were Bomb, which later turned up on the Viva La Vinyl compilation LP, and Yellow, Blue And Green which remains unreleased but is available (from a dubbed cassette copy) on the downloads page.

At the time of these recordings, some Peel Sessions were being released officially on the BBC's own Strange Fruit records, but a lot of punk bands of the time seemed to get their session either bootlegged or otherwise 'unofficially' released on 7". These days bands of all genres can licence the tracks for their regular releases. Seeing as the sleeve says 'Cover and layout by Missy', Lance's protestations of innocence above should be treated with caution.
