OTHER NOTES
Bono caught Cactus World News performing live, and made them an offer of a one-off single on the Mother Records label.  He also asked if he could produce the single, something that he had never done before but was interested in trying.  The band agreed and a three track EP was recorded with Bono as co-producer. Bono was also involved in the mixing of the tracks by Jon Kelly.

The main track on the EP would later be re-recorded without Bono for release on their first album, Urban Beaches.  In 2001 the entire album was remastered for re-release, and as an added bonus the original single on Mother Records was included among the bonus remastered tracks.
