Partisan Records have confirmed -

"The numbered collectors edition on clear vinyl, limited to 5K units, was cut in mono from its own lacquer, made and used only for this edition. A separate mono lacquer was used for all other limited colour vinyl editions of Ultra Mono - specifically the Vortex, VMP Marble and Rough Trade’s Egg Yolk versions. The continued vinyl formats (Standard Black and Deluxe Gatefold) are cut and pressed in stereo and are more widely available than the limited edition formats previously mentioned."

Please beware of PVC sleeves, PVC degrades and ruins records. You may read more about this issue in this thread: https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/726314

The sleeve sucks, but fortunately my copy sounds clean as FUCK. Love love love this album.

This variant is with zero noise for me. Comparing with Vortex one, this sounds obviously much better.

My opinion about this version :
First, I'm happy to have an album called "Ultra Mono" in mono. It makes sense I think. Because I was sad for missing the ultra clear version, i'm pleased to get this version which was supposed to be stereo like all the black editions.
Second : the sound and pressing. The pressing is flat and visually perfect. The level is quite low and i need to push the volume. Is it a problem? No, even if i hear background noise between tracks or on quiet parts. To my ears and with my system (class A integrated amp, klipsch speakers, Technics 1200gr with Nagaoka MP110), it sounds amazing, very full, dynamic and punchy. A "in your face record" for sure. The mono pressing is fitting perfectly the purpose of the record, a visceral manifesto of modern punk music. I would like to try the stereo version but this one is in need to be kept. An excellent pressing, despite all the bad opinions I've read about it.
It's a 5, one of the best album of the year.

Very cool record by a very cool band. Reminds me a lot of Gang of Four in the early days.

Just received my replacement sleeve as requested. If anyone else wants a replacement and you bought it from the official store, email
orders@allotmentproductions.com
Include pictures of the damaged sleeve and a pic of the number.Fair play for replacing it at no extra cost. These plastic sleeves seem to be in vogue at the moment but they are very underwhelming.

My seams split as well but they are replacing. Naively, I assumed the # would be more permanent somehow like etched versus a very basic sleeve. Had I known it would be so basic, I would have ordered the other version with the gatefold. Clear vinyl is common these days so all in all, it just didn’t feel “special”.

Going by the stamper info on here, this is the stereo mix found exactly the same as on the deluxe edition vinyl.
Still a lovely item to have (want!)
