Recorded at Rockfield Studio in Monmouth, Wales in August 1980, this new 5 piece band were to produce one of the most iconic albums of the 80s

The front and back cover of this album are photographs taken from the monitor during the filming of the Kings of the Wild Frontier video in early August 1980

The US version of the album changes the running order of the tracks on side 1 by swapping Feed me the the Lions and Los Rancheros around and then adding the song Press Darlings which was originally the B-Side to the UK release of the single Kings of the Wild Frontier.
Side 2 removes Making History and replaces it with Physical (You're so) which was originally released as the B-Side to the UK single Dog Eat Dog.

This promo edition is identified by the embossed gold stamp on the back of the sleeve stating FOR PROMOTION ONLY.
