    My copy of this is non textured sleeve. Technically it is the UK release, but both disc and sleeve are manufactured in France - usual for Cherry Red at the time. Cat number and matrix match the UK listed here, not the actual French issue.

      In my regard the best and most accomplished album by The Monochrome Set. So fun and entertaining both in the music and the lyrics. Packed with reference to art, cowboys, aristocracy, Morricone, The Shadows, Sound tracks, Movies and pastiche in general.
      Great fun. Very art school in the good satire way like L by Godley and Creme.
