Black plastic tape with embossed "Made in Canada", grey print.
Comes in clear case with round front sticker:
"The song Killing an Arab has absolutely no racist overtones whatsover.
It is a song wich decries the existence of all prejudice and consequent violence.
The Cure condemn its use in furthering anti-Arab feeling."
