* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The self-titled album had a stronger American folk influence, and prominent tape-stutter noises.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The self-titled album had a stronger American folk influence, and prominent tape-stutter noises. Basically, it was a missing link between the alternative rock of Neutral Milk Hotel and the Balkan folk that dominated AHAAH's subsequent albums.



* IAmTheBand: Jeremy Barnes was initially the sole member of the band, and he played all the instruments on the first album.

* {{Sampling}}: ''You Have Already Gone to the Other World'' uses clips from the film (and on one track, "an unknown Hungarian 78 [rpm record]"). Mostly they're snippets of dialogue, but a few feature singing and AHAAH simply provides backing music for them.

* PopStarComposer: Okay, maybe it's a bit of a stretch to call Barnes a pop star. Anyway, the self-titled album was used as a soundtrack for the documentary film ''Zizek!'', and starting in 2011, the band would perform original live music to accompany screenings of ''Film/ShadowsOfForgottenAncestors''.
* MultipleReferencePun: The name A Hawk and a Hacksaw references Aksak (a meter common in Balkan and Turkish music) and the phrase "a hawk and a handsaw" (which originates from ''{{Hamlet}}'', but came to Jeremy Barnes by way of one particular translation of ''Literature/DonQuixote'').
