The first hundred or so copies were cut and glued by Steve and Jon Babbin (the Effigies' manager). Some copies had cool inserts (razor blades, hair, blood, bazooka Joe comics, pictures of dead people, bumper stickers, PIL tickets and other miscellaneous crap), some didn't.
Included an insert with production notes and lyrics.

Re-released on Touch And Go in 1992.

    They just found a bunch in Steve's basement. Check the Touch and Go website...they may be gone already.

      My copy also has a bag of hair in it. It also has an additional weird handmade insert with a bunch of stamps on it. One of the stamps says 'big black', so I assume it came originally with the record.

          My copy came with a crushed Camel cigarette in a baggy.
