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).

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!

I own an A5/B7 copy with 12 tracks on record, 11 on yellow rear sleeve and Vicious miscredited on "EMI". There are so many variations, it's a nightmare identifying which one. I have had violations twice but no indication of what was wrong but have now settled on the release that has the text: "Third UK printing variant of the 12 track original UK sequence master including "Submission" as B3." but it is difficult to identify.

With regard to the single-sided single "Submission" single which I think I purchased separately. How can I sell the one-sided single on Discogs??? I am sure people would be interested in purchasing it.

I have the original plain pink rear sleeve, 11 track version, and a copy of the single sided Submission. Were the two issued together? The description on Discogs seems to say the pink version didn't come with the free single.
Any thoughts?

I have a version on vinyl, Virgin, V2086 A7/B7. But I don't have a cover for it - is there any resource online to buy original sleeves/covers only?

where is A&M AMS 7284 - some say that one costs around a 1000 pounds? Does it exist?
