i travel: information

  • Issued to promote Empires And Dance, this single was backed with the non-LP track New Warm Skin which was recorded during the album sessions.

  • As a bonus, the first 7,500 copies were issued with a free flexi-disc which was shrink-wrapped with the single. This limited edition featured two bonus tracks, probably recorded during the Real To Real Cacophony sessions. Kaleidoscope had previously appeared live during the Life In A Day tour, whilst Film Theme Dub was a radical reworking of Film Theme. It was the band's first remix.

  • John Leckie remixed and extended the title track, and the band were enthusiastic to release it on 12" - a relatively new format. It turned out cheaper to press the record in France and import it to the UK. Therefore some French copies were stickered with UK catalogue numbers.

  • The artwork on the 12" suggested the two tracks on the flexi-disc were being considered as the B-side. However, despite the sleeve stating Film Theme Dub, the record was pressed with Film Theme.

  • Film Theme Dub remains unissued in any other form, and is the band's rarest B-side.
