  • This demo was recorded when Falco Richter was still the band's manager.
  • This demo came with an original information sheet from the band.
  • This tape was used for radio airplay to promote the 6 May 1994 show at the Anker venue in Leipzig.
  • The song Das alte Leid is misspelled as Das alte Lied on the tracklist.
  • This tape is the only known release to feature a full version of the Das alte Leid demo; all other demos on other releases fade out.
  • Up to now, only one known copy of this tape has surfaced, along with its no-artwork 'backup copy'.
  • Interestingly, the demos on this tape seem to be mixed differently than the later demos issued on Motor Music promo tapes.
  • An alternate version without artwork exists, including an early instrumental demo song using the baby sample from Mutter as a sixth track. This tape was circulated by the band directly.
