    I have owned this album for the day it was released. I was at Manchester Uni in the late 70s/80's. I attended JD's lat gig and NO's 1st gig.Imho, Unknown Pleasures is a perfect album. Even though Ian struggled with suicidal thoughts, he was a genius with his lyrics. The Bands dark and moody atmospheric added to their vibe. Oh my, how it has endured over the years.

      I'd be really grateful if someone could help identify my copy. It most closely resembles the first pressing. Textured sleeve, rounded corners on inner sleeve, solid black vinyl, FACT 10. The runouts are a bit different though.
      Side A (Outside): FACT-10 - OUTSIDE I B S-36 ⇀ THIS IS THE WAY A PORKY PRIME CUT
      Side B (Inside): FACT 10 - INSIDE I A A PORKY PRIME CUT ⇀ STEP S-35
      If it's a variation, or a different release, I'll add it to Discogs.

        " This is the way step inside" is a first line from Atrocity Exhibition, how did this words may appear on the runouts of Unknown Pleasures?

          I have a copy of variant 8 which is a little translucent yellow when hold under smartphone light.

                This is THE only version to hear this album. It’s a totally different beast. ‘Porky Peckham’, none other will suffice.

                  All digital remasters, vinyl, CD's or files have compressed the soul out of this masterpiece. Look for George 'Porky' Peckham analogue masters. It says 'Porky Prime Cuts', nothing else will do!

                    Easily in top 10 best sounding vinyl pressings in my collection.
                    Killer bass, gives you goosebumps. No wonder why this album is so iconic, perfectly recorded.
                    Truly hypnotizing experience, highly recommended to buy !

                      Hi everyone. I seem to have this pressing with slightly different run-outs:
                      Side A: FACT-10-OUTSIDE I B THIS IS THE WAY A PORKY PRIME CUT S-2 (similar to var 32)
                      Side B: FACT 10-INSIDE I A A PORKY PRIME CUT - STEP S-2 (also S-2 instead of W-2)
                      Does this sound familiar?
