Releases

The 12" version of the song is almost twice as long as the 7" version, and includes an additional verse.

The B-side was an alternate arrangement entitled "Shame of the Nation", which included, among other elements, backing vocals. This was written and produced with John Robie, marking the group's third collaboration with him.

Though not included on most standard releases of the concurrently-released studio album "Brotherhood", the 12" version of the song was included as a bonus track on some versions.

The 12" version and "Shame of the Nation" were collected on the "Substance" compilation. The 7" version was collected on the "Singles" compilation. The 7" version of "Shame of the Nation" can only be found on the original 7" vinyl release.
