  • The voice of Dr. Nightmare was performed by Easy O.
  • The song "Touched by the Hand of Cicciolina" references Hungarian-born porn actress Cicciolina, who was elected to the Italian parliament in 1987. In 1991 she lost her bid for re-election, but remains active in politics.
  • "Another Man's Rhubarb" contains dialogue from the 1989 Batman movie.
  • "Axe of Men" contains a sample from My Bloody Valentine's "Soon".
  • The song "Nightmare at 20,000ft" references The Twilight Zone episode of the same name, and features clips from the episode, along with a sample from "Shake Your Rump" by The Beastie Boys.
  • The vocals in "92°F (The Third Degree)" were sung by Sylvia Tella.
  • Later UK CD pressings substitute the Electric Sunshine Style version of X Y & Zee and the Boilerhouse Birth Mix of 92°F. The original album versions of these tracks have been added to the end of the album.
  • "The Beat That Refused to Die" samples This Mortal Coil's cover of "Drugs".
