Release date from booklet 'The New Singles' No. 708

King's Lead Hat is an anagram of 'Talking Heads'. The B-side uses dialogue of Baader-Meinhoff terrorists recorded from a German telephone announcement made to try and apprehend members of the gang, hence R.A.F - Red Army Faction.

 this track is also significant in that it's one of the very few cover versions done by Ultravox (Midge Ure era) - you'll find it on the 12" of Passing Strangers - a pretty good live version

 It doesn't matter if the title is an anagram or not...what is significant is that this magificent single is a total remix of the album track, and it has never been reissued on an album or CD.
