Alien Sex Fiend - Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain? Album Info :
Here come The Fiends! Alien Sex Fiend's legendary debut ground-breaking album "Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?" captured the band's initial burst of psychotic energy and offered more than the group's image may have suggested : the gothic cross-rhythms, mutant surf guitar lines and stabbed keyboard pulses created a primal electro-goth that it was actually possible to dance to. All topped off with Nik Fiend's unique Ziggy from the crypt vocals. Produced by ace knob twiddler Youth (of Killing Joke fame) "Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain?" includes the indie chart hit singles "Ignore The Machine" and "Lips Can't Go". Two bonus live cuts - "New Christian Music" and "Crazee" - were added to the CD issue in 1989 to give 12 slices of pure Batcave era Alien Sex Fiend anthems. In August 2001 the CD was re-issued on Anagram Records' Goth Series Collection. Although the front cover was the same as the original vinyl and previous CD release, the rest of the packaging was updated and the booklet included the full lyrics hand-written by Nik Fiend along with photos from the early Batcave gigs as well as a full discography. The CD itself was updated to a picture disc with a photo of the band.

February 2015 : This re-issue features the Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain? vinyl album as one CD of a 4 CD Box Set entitled Classic Albums and BBC Sessions Collection with additional bonus tracks, including the infamous John Peel BBC sessions. The CD has been packaged in a mini-replica of the original LP sleeve.

August 2015 : Deluxe Double Vinyl LP re-issue, Limited Edition, discs in red and black splatter effect coloured vinyl. Gatefold sleeve, inner features full lyrics written out by Nik Fiend.

Trainspotter corner : The track "Black Rabbit" features Johnnie Ha Ha (drummer) on piano and Yaxi (guitarist) on drums doing a spoof of the UK's cheeky cockney chappies Chas n Dave.

Alien Sex Fiend - Who's Been Sleeping In My Brain? (US release) Album Info:
This release has a different track listing from the UK release. The tracks "Wigwam Wipeout" & "Ignore The Machine" (which this company released as a 12" single) are not included & are replaced by "R.I.P." & "Drive My Rocket". Also the version "New Christian Music" is different from the UK release, this & the version of "R.I.P" are taken from the UK 7" R.I.P. single, produced by ASF, which was released at the same time in March 1984. All other tracks were produced by Youth. Note that "Lips Can't Go" is not actually listed on the back of the sleeve but it IS there! The alternative front cover was designed by Greg Maskwa & Dimitirus aka The Dam Boyz.
