Trivia:
- "Kailan" was originally from the U.P. musical, "Manhid". It's original title was "Huwag Mo Akong Ha-hagkan", with slightly different lyrics - [original lyrics]

- In June 1994, Eraserheads manager, Ann Angala & Claire Agbayani had a soiree at the Hiraya Gallery on UN Ave. and they met Mark Justiniani, who eventually did a painting that soon became the cover of Circus.
