The band Primal Scream got their name from a lyric on this 51 second track: "I still believe in the R&R dream/ R&R as primal scream."
Live at the Witch Trials was The Fall's debut album. Despite its title this was not recorded live, instead it was a studio recording.
Marc Riley, who played bass on this album, was a member of The Fall until 1983. He later became a successful DJ, teaming up with Mark Radcliffe to present the "Mark and Lard" show on BBC Radio 1 between 1993 and 2004, (Riley was Lard), before fronting his own show on BBC 6 Music.
