On some intital copies, tracks 7 and 8 are reversed, although the track titles appear as they should on the back, the tracks are in fact reversed, and are even labeled with the correct track lengths, though the titles are mislabeled.

Press Release :
On an October Monday 10 years ago, in Sheffield, Warp records quietly released Aphex Twin a.k.a Richard D. James' 'Hangable Autobulb'project in it's original 2 E.P form.
Much speculation surrounded this mythical release as only 1000 pressings were ever made on vinyl. Of course, in 1995, information wasn't as commonly shared on the worldwide web and so many enthusiastic punters didn't get to hear these strange beats.
These were the first releases that marked AFX's experimentation with the dynamics, speed and programming that had evolved through the UK jungle scene morphing it into something entirely alien or rather, something entirely Richard D. James.
This sound is one which many now find synonymous with Aphex Twin, defined by the landmark Richard D. James album, even though Hangable Autobulb was first to introduce it. The rest is musical history.
