I have a version with different label art than the "F-2" version and also has "F-3" in the dead wax.

I have this same album, but the B side matrix is slightly different (an earlier cut was used).
Instead of SHSP 4076 B-3, mine has SHSP 4076 B-2.
A side matrix is the same: SHSP 4076 A-4.

'Never mind..' was important at that time. It surely was a setting according to fashion, marketing and music in 1977, but after more than 35 years its music just sounds funny.
This one is different. Pink Flag is a reflection of that time.
Of course, the short and compact 1 minute something pieces indicate its date of release. BUT there is more here. A different complexity, added with more than hints what was coming after punk.

Forget the Pistols and the Damned....this was the best 'punk' release of 1977. Arty, angular, it consists of a multitude of songs stripped down to bare essentials: often using the denuding as the process of composition itself. Minimalist and too intelligent to be pure punk, their inspirations (like all the best punk bands) came from experimental musics of the late 60's/ early 70's- Krautrock, velvets etc. It has what seems like dozens of little gems, perfectly formed and they say what they have to say and then depart. Boredom, of the Howard Devoto kind, is not to be found here. Highly recommended, it has stood the test of time and still sounds fresh, while being of it's period too. Masterpiece.

4 Men w/ Beards = meh. Went through 2 copies to find one that was not warped. The artwork transfer is abominable, especially the inner sleeve which is clearly a low quality jpeg printed with all the compression artifacts. Clearly not much care went into the RE as is warranted by such a great album.
