Excitable Boy entered the Kent Music Report album charts on 6 March 1978 and peaked at #9.
Lawyers, Guns and Money lent its title to a light-hearted radio program on the Melbourne community radio station 3RRR which looked at the legal fraternity in the city. The program started in 1985 and ran for several years hosted by the pseudonymous duo “Donoghue & Stevenson”— Dennis Connell and Ross Stevenson. The song was used as both intro and exit music for the program.
Our added note: The program was later picked up by commercial radio station 3AW, which broadened its content scope and added Dean Banks as anchor. Ross Stevenson was still on the 3AW breakfast show when this song was added to Bang a Gong in 2021.
