"Candy and a Current Bun" was the B-side to Pink Floyd's first single, Arnold Layne. When performed live in 1967, the song was known as "Let's Roll Another One" and contained the line "I'm high - Don't try to spoil my fun", but the record company forced Syd Barrett to rewrite it without the controversial drug references. It features the first released Waters scream, which would reappear in Careful with that Axe, Eugene, Run Like Hell and others.

The Mars Volta cover

The Mars Volta's cover of "Candy and a Current Bun" was released in some U.S. indie stores as free 5" VinylDisc. It was given away with purchase of the album (The Bedlam in Goliath). The VinylDisc is a new format that has a digital side and a vinyl side. One side plays in a CD player, while the other side plays on a turntable. The vinyl side contains the Pink Floyd cover "Candy and a Currant Bun", while the CD side contains the audio track for "Candy and a Current Bun" as well as the Wax Simulacra video as enhanced content. It also comes with a removable foam spindle insert to switch between CD & vinyl.

The track was a regulation bonus track on the UK and Australasian releases of the album.
