Pirate version of Closer.

First cat# on sleeve (spine and back cover), 2nd on labels and from runouts!

The outer sleeve looks the same as the official 1980 Factory UK vinyl release.

Label differences from the official 1980 edition :
-missing "A Fractured Music A Factory Record" (from top of the ring)
-missing band name and album title
-missing "Published by Fractured Music"
-"FACT. 25" is replaced by "A/B JDC02"

Includes single sheet insert with printing on both sides, one side has the song lyrics.

This stickered edition was issued with a bonus poster.

Probably from Germany.

The printing company on the insert (Clifford Press) was taken from the UK/Euro remastered LP edition and is of course fake too.
