- The Japanese issue comes with two bonus tracks:
Self Inflicted (previously released on Not The Same EP in Australia)
Halfway Around The World (previously released on Fall To The Ground EP in Australia)
The disc was re-issued in limited numbers in Australia as a 2CD set which included the You Got Me A Girls Bike You Idiot! EP. This double CD Issue was first released with picture discs identical to the original releases (of How It Works and You Got Me A Girl's Bike You Idiot!),with a sticker on the cover - "Includes bonus 9 track CD".
It was then subsequently with two silver discs, without the cover sticker advertising the second disc.
EMI also released the 2CD version of How It Works with Plastic Skies as a double album promotion in August '05. Both albums were in their own jewel cases with full original artwork, and both were silver discs. They were packaged together in a card slipcase.
An "On Demand" version of the How It Works + You Got Me A Girl's Bike You Idiot! EP is available via amazon onlne, however these are CDR's, not pressed CDs.
