NOTES:
150g black vinyl reissue of Sugarshit Sharp, issued with poster in shrink-wrapped and stickered sleeve with white paper die-cut inner sleeve. Also issued on CD in 1998 and remastered for release on Shove in 2012.

*UK release date: 6 April 1998 / US release date: 24 March 1998

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).
