Notes

Made in England.

℗ 1977 Virgin Records Ltd.

First UK pressing, approximately 1000 copies.
Originally planned to be released as promo only, but eventually released commercially earlier than expected due to the rushed-out French pressing being imported to UK.
Plain pink back cover, 11 tracks only.
No poster, no freebie 7" included.

Most copies are sent to France to counterattack massive UK-imports from Barclay Records. They are also sold in the UK, Scandinavia and the USA (as seen on the photos, record was imported to the US through JEM Records).

First UK pressing, approximately 1000 copies..... and 1542 Discogs members have it. What are the odds?

I can't believe that there are only 1000 copies of the 11 track lp! If there are six different pairs of matrix number configurations of A/B with 1/3 (see above) then pressing plants of the time would not have done such a short run on each pressing for what was a hugely anticipated album. That would mean less than 200 for each pressing!? Really! Hardly worth prepping the machine for.

This album is amazingly overhyped, listen to some Dead Boys instead. Their first record "Young Loud and Snotty" came out just a couple weeks before this hunk of junk. Sid was a junkie that had no clue what he was doing, and only appears for a few seconds on one song on this record.

I have a V2086 A2/B3 version. I bought it in the late 80s off a chap who said he'd originally bought it in France. It had the single sided Submission single with it but I've no idea if it originally came with this or the chap acquired it later (seems like chrisbrown is asking the same question). Like PunkCollector said the best info about all of this can be found at http://www.philjens.plus.com/pistols/pistols/nmtb_worldwide_index.htm. I emailed the guy (Phil) there about mine and his simple answer was "Seems like combinations were endless!" So unless anyone here is more knowledgeable I'm sticking by his info. 1000 made but more than a 1000 owned??? I've taken images of mine and I know it's genuine - the question is where does it fit into the story. I'd suggest other folk take photos too - let's see matrix, covers, labels.

Dear Discogs readers. It is important to note that this information page is being updated with false information. I've attempted to make it accurate but a certain user is insistent on adding matrix that are incorrect. I think its fairly obvious since approximately 1000 were made and more then 1000 are owned. Unless every record survived and is in the hands of Discogs members which we all know is impossible then this information page is diluted with false claims. Please buy and collect wisely and don't be fooled by this page as it can be edited by any member trying to sell an album. The best info caneeded be found at http://www.philjens.plus.com/pistols/pistols/pistols_nmtb.htm.
I have attempted to add this link but it keeps being removed by Animatedbat. I'm not sure why he is afraid of free information and would rather deprive Discog members of this info. Please collect wisely. Have a great day.

I have 11 song out of order press with 11 songs listed on back. A3/B2 runout. Anyone know where this fits in the scheme?

For any Discog reader. It is extremely unfortunate that Discogs has allowed the A1/B2 version to be added to the information page. It was even stated by previous poster that there is no hard proof of this. By hard proof, it is meant no proof. The fact that someone owns this copy does not mean it's 1st 1000. This information page is now tainted and should not be considered as factual. Johnny_ Rotten made the case 4 years ago that only A1/A1, A2/B2, and A3/B3 that these were only the 1st 1000. http://www.philjens.plus.com/pistols/pistols/pistols_nmtb.htm
Also states this. Please be aware of sellers claiming anything else as legit. Animatedbat should not have revised this again as a legit matrix still with no proof. Buyers beware of this!
