  • The Chinese Album was considered for a soundtrack and basis of a film called "Mungo City" (later called "The Chinese Movie"). It was to be about a band that moves to Hong Kong for success after getting rejected by a New York record company. Unsatisfied with the final script, Spacehog dismissed any plans for shooting.
  • Spacehog wrote and recorded 20 songs for The Chinese Album. Among these are the b-sides "Final Frontier", "Isle of Manhattan", and "Cryogenic Lover" which were released as European singles.
  • The beginning of "Mungo City" references the "Ministry of Plenty" from 1984 (novel)
