Additional notes
The title Streetcleaner may have originated from the band Whitehouse, one of Justin's influences. On their Right to Kill album they have a song called The Street Cleaner which might have influenced the band to choose that for their first full length album title.

On the original copy of the CD, tracks 6 and 7 are read on the case to be one whole track but they are two individual tracks (as presented in the tracklist here.)

Tracks 1-5 were recorded at Soundcheck in Birmingham, May-August 1989, without Paul Neville.
Tracks 6-10 were recorded at Square Dance in Derby, May 1989, with Paul Neville.

CD bonus tracks:

11. Tiny Tears (3:24)
12. Wound (3:07)
13. Dead Head (4:07)
14. Suction (3:23)

These were recorded for an EP called Tiny Tears that was never released.

Re-released as MC and CD in June 1994 by Earache Records with inferior cover and back art.

Re-released on vinyl by Kreation Records in 2008 remastered by Mell Dettmer (splatter x250, orange/black blend x250, black unlimited).

Remastered and reissued in 2010 including a bonus disc of rarities:
1. Like Rats (Original Unreleased Mix)
2. Christbait Rising (Original Unreleased Mix)
3. Pulp (Original Unreleased Mix)
4. Dream Long Dead (Original Unreleased Mix)
5. Head Dirt (Original Unreleased Mix)
6. Streetcleaner (Live Geneva early 1990)
7. Head Dirt (Live Geneva early 1990)
8. Pulp (Rehearsal May 1989)
9. Dream Long Dead (Rehearsal April 1989)
10. Christbait Rising (Rehearsal April 1989)
11. Deadhead (Original Demo Guitar & Machine 1988)
12. Suction (Original Demo Guitar & Machine 1988)

The artwork used for this album is actually a screenshot from a scene in the 1980 sci-fi/horror film 'Altered States'.

The 2010 remaster combines the tracks "Devastator / Mighty Trust Krusher" into one track, as originally intended.

There was a music video made for "Christbait Rising".
