Pussy Galore - Sugarshit Sharp (CD, EUROPE)
VIEW:
NOTES:
European CD reissue of Sugarshit Sharp, issued in standard case with clear tray.

This particular CD edition was pressed by EMI UDEN (Netherlands) rather than Nimbus (UK release).

Includes bonus track (from Pentration In The Centerfold (7″, JAPAN)), more images and text from a fax.

For the cover artwork Pussy Galore “wanted the Rolling Stones lips logo on the cover but Caroline Records got cold feet, permission was sought and, after a month or two, “Prince Rupert or someone or other sent a message – ‘Mr Jagger says no’, ‘So the cover’s now a carve-up inferno between the lips and Neubauten’s symbol so “we won’t get sued for it…But, if we did get sued, it would be great!” – Melody Maker: Insanity Claws (PRESS, UK)

The original intended artwork was included as a sticker with the Japanese release on Supernatural Organization and appears on the rear sleeve of the bootleg 7″ single Love You Live.

In 1998 Mute / Matador reissued Right Now!, Sugarshit Sharp and Dial ‘M’ for Motherfucker on both vinyl (with Posters) and CD. Matador Records issued a promo only Pussy Galore Sampler featuring tracks from all three albums.

This release features covers of Devo (Penetration In The Centerfold, originally released on The Day My Baby Gave Me a Surprize (7″, UK)) and Einstürzende Neubauten (Yü-Gung, released as a 12″ single).
