Notes

Released on 16 November 1979 as 7".

The initial run of 10,000 pressings came in a textured sleeve. The subsequent run of another 20,000 pressings came in textured or flat (untextured) sleeves. Until 17 July 1981, 38.245 7" records were pressed in total.

Other differentiation criteria:
The cut-out on the rear is either bevelled or rounded or there is none.
The glue flaps are either all straight or rounded at the bottom.
The G+L is either white or purple.
First editions (A1 / B1) were cut by Graeme Durham at the Sound Clinic, while later editions (A2 / B1) were cut by George "Porky" Peckham.
Editions were pressed by WEA (S-x) or Lyntone (LYN-xxxx).

Issued as 12" in February 1981. According to Tony Wilson "due to continuing unhappiness with cut on 'Novelty'".

Despite high expectations, the single only charted in the UK Independent charts.

Please note there is an Italian Base Record pressing of Material - Ciquri / Detached that was inadvertently packaged (with sleeve and labels) as their version of this release.
