Additional Notes

The original pressing on Rigid Digits was just 500 copies, and came on red labels with a low quality photocopied picture sleeve; on some of these original pressings the band had written "2" on the B-Side label as well. The second had a better quality picture sleeve and came with several different coloured labels: yellow, red, cream, white, and red again, although the second red label also bore the credit "Original Recording: Belfast, 1978". You can easily identify the entire 2nd run further because the a) the name of the single is on the top left on the front cover and b) the labels do not have the word "Records" under the label name. All of these were Northern Ireland releases. The Rough Trade/Rigid Digits version was a genuine reissue and came out in October '78, shortly after the band's second single was released. Both songs were later re-recorded for Inflammable Material.
