Hey, has anyone come across matrix numbers S-13 on side A and S-11 on side B?
Inner sleeve has rounded corners.
Please reply if this means something to you, since I can't figure out which variation I've got. Many thanks

There are tons of issues of UP and I couldn't see mine anywhere...but am sure it's a 1988 re-iss: it's an Italian import with the stamped labels, no printed inner and a smooth sleeve. No barcode. Bought in Berlin 1990 - I can remember it being about £3!
Can't ref the codes as it's in storage with the rest.

Brilliant album! Very powerful and brimming with atmosphere, stark and very beautiful in places, a total one off as there will never be an album like this again.

Has anyone come across matrix numbers (with all the usual stuff / porky / step / inside etc):

S - 6 on side A & S - 16 on side B.

S - 16 is etched twice. Once upside down & crossed through on side B in addition to the uncrossed S - 16 the right way round.

Appreciate any help!

Hard to belive that Only Mistake, Walked In Line, The Kill, Auto-Suggestion, From Safety To Where...?, and the Unknown Pleasures Alb have been recorded in the same session ! For me a teaching example how important production is. Something that was hard to learn for me as Punk- Musician !

there's a polygram cass release not listed, 830 812-4 with paper labels, outer black, inner white with polygram shell
I'm super inexperienced adding releases(only ever added one Chet baker Cass comp), but if anyone wants to do it or even go the extra mile and throw me a few pointers and help me do it, well that'd be just swell
