According to Nicky Garratt, when interviewed for the Coventry based fanzine EATEN ALIVE (issue 4/Spring 1998), the 'S' album was originally to be titled 'Speed', which was Garratt's idea for the follow on album to the Quintessentials & Riot re-union releases. Garratt stated that "it would be an ultra fast punk album full of intense short songs. The ball is in Charlie's court on this one, if he wants to do it, I'm ready and Dave Ayer is also interested."

The inside cover features pictures of previous band members including one called 'Rommel' (real name Michael Richter) who doesn't appear on any of the recordings used though did play drums in the band from 6th June to 15th August 1997.
