About the album[]

All the songs were produced by Courtney Taylor-Taylor and/or Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran, except "Rock Bottom," which was produced by Courtney Taylor-Taylor and Tony Visconti.

Mixed by Jeremy Wheatley, the album features Simon Le Bon performing backing vocals on "Plan A".

Welcome To The Monkey House was released with artwork that is probably a homage to the Velvet Underground's album The Velvet Underground & Nico, which was produced and designed by Nick Rhodes' friend Andy Warhol.
