The New Scientist EP made a big impact in the media, thanks to some of the band best tunes and a brilliant cover. The tracks were continually pulled out in the later years of ARK, New Scientist itself being a favourite of Gel's.

Stuart did an outstanding job on the cover artwork. The front depicts the character from "New Scientist", while the 4 corners of the back cover, depict the 4 indiviual tracks. The lovely Joanne also did a great job with the lettering for the lyrics & liner notes too (okay so I'm biased ... but that's another story!)
