The Answer to Both Your Questions is a name created after Paul asked a friend for ideas of what to call the EP, and what to put on the cover. The answer was "The answer to both your questions, is pornography." He did end up naming the album - just not in the way he'd intended!
Something For Kate have recently toured internationally, touring the United States and Japan in March / April of 2000.
