The Small Hours is an album featuring at least three songs: "Hit Single," "This Boy's Not My Son," and "Rock and Roll Orthodontist," as well as a fourth feature: "Mother," a "song" which simply consists of the album's creator, Mr. Small, screaming at Alison. Apparently, the album was self-funded, and the aforementioned four songs were previewed in "The Singing."
