Notes

Sides A and D end in a locked groove.

This is the first edition with silver/dark-green labels.

The images on the cover are silkscreened on a thick, heavy craftboard (actually, 2 pieces of tan hardboard/Masonite), bound with a reddish cord.
The front plate is printed in black, the back features the logo with a gold border.

The second edition features a few significant differences:
- The labels are printed dark-green/light-green and feature the publisher's credit "Screaming Red Music" additionally.
- The plates are not as dark and "bronze" as the original, the cord is slightly thicker.
- The front plate is printed in black and gold ("Zoviet France") and appears a little darker and with less contrast, thus a few details go missing in the artwork.
- The back plate is printed in black and gold with very sharp edges both on the gold print and the black logo.

Is there any indication as to how many of these were made? Surely not that many given the labour required

Absolutely seminal release, but you'd think fans of vintage experimental music were also in the market for diamond-studded Louis Vuitton iPhone cases in Dubai at these prices. Hyperbole aside, with this sort of demand wouldn't it make sense to get some nice uncompressed digital downloads for sale out there or some decent CD reissues? I was trying to restock all of my old ZF releases with very nice vinyl &/or uncompressed digital files, but at these prices a creaky old MP3 pirated from Archive.org is still looking pretty decent.

Quintessential dark ambient record, probably one of the most sinister 80's industrial releases.

For me it's their best along with Eostre , two fine double albums of excellent experimental music.

In my not so humble opinion, this spectacular release is ZOVIET FRANCE's best, each song totaly authentic and powerful, each song a genre itself. 32 years later and noone (not even grand COIL) managed to ever release sth like this. This the pool of industrial possibilities, search no further.

Nice record. Hard to believe that promo copies were sent out (of the 2nd press) but I distinctly remember receiving one (which I still possess) in the mid 80s sometime (86/87?) Don't know if that fits in with the timeline.
Misfits... was also promo'd around 1986 as well. Seems a strange sort of thing to send out to radio stations.... but that was the old days.... weren't they great?

Nearly 30 years since I bought this! Original masonite covered version. I just converted the vinyl to MP3 and listened again with fresh ears. Still remains the mysterious entity it always was. One of ZF's most satisfying releases and I have quite a few (in original and wondrous) artwork sleeves. As I slowly convert each of their recordings for portable listening I realise what a unique force they really were. Even inspired me to try my own hand at 'sound sculpting', with a little less success than they. Mohnomishe is quintessential ZF, the primitive, other-wordly, electronic and subsonic pulses. Like no-one else before or since. A joy. My heart quickens.
