* BritishAccents: Hammill has a distinctly English (pretty much Received Pronunciation English) vocal delivery, a holdover from his days as a Jesuit chorister.

* CutSong: The CD re-release of ''Pawn Hearts'' includes much of the material that was recorded in order to make ''Pawn Hearts'' a double LP, before they changed their minds. Another cut song from the ''Pawn Hearts'' sessions was included on the reissue of ''H to He'' (the live-in-the-studio medley of "Squid" and "Octopus").

Three albums; ''The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other'', ''H to He Who Am the Only One'' and ''Pawn Hearts'' (the latter is considered their MagnumOpus). In 1970 they began to forge their original sound and garner significant attention. Problematic European touring, especially in Italy, caused considerable stress (due to things like neo-fascist organisations turning up at their concerts) and eventually the band decided to temporarily split in order to prevent lasting damage.
