"Pop Goes Art!" was also the first release on Treacy and Ball's Whaam! label, and featured the hilarious Ray Davies-influenced "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" (Patrick McGoohan, of course, being the doomed star of the T.V. series, "The Prisoner"), "Miss London" and other forgotten classics. Track listing - Side A: 1. Picture Gallery 2. Biff! Bang! Pow! 3. It's Time! 4. If Now Is the Answer 5. A New Arrangement 6. Looking at the World Through Dark Shades 7. I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape Side B: 1. Pop Goes Art! (Melody in Mono) 2. Miss London 3. The Sun Never Sets 4. Easy as Pie 5. This Is Tomorrow
