Extract of the booklet: "It's not often that a group release two completely different versions of the same song. Originally from 1989 album Doolittle, the Pixies decided to un-trash the song, slowing it down to less than half its normal speed. After trying out the slow rendition on stage, the group decided to commit it to tape. This is the mix that appeared on the long deleted "Here Comes Your man" EP and also later turned up on the "Pump Up The Volume" soundtrack."
