Devin Townsend was the only prominent members on this release. The album included several session musicians in its recording.

Reissued in 2005 in Germany and June 12, 2006 in USA by Century Media with the following bonus material:

10. Satan's Ice Cream Truck (2:34) (Hidden bonus track from original original)
11. Japan (5:17) (originally a Japanese bonus track)
12. Monday (5:13) (previously unreleased bonus track)
13. Exciter (Judas Priest cover) (6:04) (European bonus track from original version)


+ "S.Y.L." video clip (4:50)

Including a 12-page booklet with extended liner notes from Devin Townsend himself. As Devin recalls, "I had finished with The Wildhearts just prior to this (1994), and they were so anti-everything that I decided to take a similar approach while focusing on dissonance and just being as over-the-top as I could. Songs didn't really matter; it was just the intensity and the vibe plus lots of humor. Screaming and laughing are pretty close, I think, and I have just never been 'hard,' so we do what comes naturally, right? Right."
