Brilliant post-punk album, it presaged the Joy Division sound with echo on drums

UK pressing of Siouxsie's first album is definitely the way to go. All of the punk noise is there, without unnecessary distortion. Crank up "Suburban Relapse" or "Carcass" and remember how good it sounds to be bad.

I have two copies of the first issue https://www.discogs.com/Siouxsie-And-The-Banshees-The-Scream/release/404853
they both seem to have the correct matrix numbers.
One has a glossy outer sleeve and no inner the other a matt outer and a printed inner.
It seems the inner could have been lost? but which is the correct outer sleeve?
Cheers

Immortal masterpiece by Siouxsie & The Banshees. In this first album a mix of post-punk and new wave as their best. Listen to believe.........
