Notes

1. Reformation gives the lowdown:

One of the group's more notorious tracks, this is a recording of a drunken conversation between MES, Ed Blaney and a couple of others over a taxi which somehow fails to arrive. Other Fall tracks which feature taxis include Cab Driver and Rebellious Jukebox. It's also one of the group's songs recorded in a house, along with WMC - Blob 59 and Dresden Dolls. There's no music as such except for an acoustic guitar lazily strummed from time to time. Not surprisingly, it has never been played live.


Brian Fanning and Ed Blaney played guitar in the Fall on Are You Are Missing Winner, and "Lesley" seems to be one Les Fisher. 

Per Zack, "'7 8 9 all the fives' is indeed the phone number for Minicabs in Manchester: 0161 789 5555."

This stupid, worthless bonus track doesn't deserve any annotations, but here's one anyway:

"7 8 9 all the fives" is indeed the phone number for Minicabs in Manchester: 0161 789 5555.
