Trivia:
  • The album was recorded in the summer of 2000 in Jamaica and Damon's 13 studios in London. At the time, reports suggested that Damon was working on his solo album with producer Dan the Automator.
  • The album's first single and the biggest hit "Clint Eastwood" got its shape quickly: "Essentially, it's made up of stuff we put together in more or less a day, except the vocals, and then just tweaked," explained the engineer Tom Girling. The initial version of the song featured a rap by Phi Life and Cypher (could be heard on "Phi Life Cypher Remix").
  • "5/4" was originally intented to be the album's second single, but was put off by catchier "19-2000".
  • The promo video for "19-2000" features over 450 sound effects. The car effect is actually Jamie Hewlett's Pontiac.
  • Although not credited, Kid Koala does the scratching on the album. Also, as seen in the Bananaz documentary, Dave Rowntree plays drums on "Punk" and possibly on some other tracks on the album.
  • There are three samples on the album: "Rock The House" contains portions from Modesty Blaise film main theme, "M1 A1" contains portions from the film Day Of The Dead and "New Genious (Brother)" contains portions of "Hit Or Miss" performed by Bo Diddley.
  • Total running time (UK ver. including hidden track): 63:47
