 Early versions of the single had the 'Mini mob' credit but as Wurzelsepp states the version in the film is by Georgie Fame and actually pre-dates the Bee Gees version according to IMDb :

'Obsessive UK pop fans should note that it features a brief clip of The Majority performing a song written (but never released) by the Bee Gees, as well as the first recording of the Bee Gees' later hit, "Words," covered here by pop star Georgie Fame, who plays a pop star named "Georgie Hart." '

bold type by me !
It would seem that the film reference credit was dropped from the label on next pressings as the BGs do not actually feature in the film.

 A side from the film The Mini-Mob acc. to the sheet music. Though the version in the film is actually performed by Georgie Fame.

 My just acquired copy - the vinyl is so thin and flimsy, almost too thin!

 All Aound The World, The Modern World...and News Of The World by The Jam was an interesting sucessive troika...John

 And The Clash did this and this!

 Not to mention this...

 So they followed 'World' with 'Words'? It must have been pretty confusing at the time

 Gave "Sinking Ships" a spin last night while sorting some recently-donated 45's...what a truly great track it is. Can't stop singing it today though...!

 Exactly right. I just bought a mint copy in original sleeve for 50p.
