NOTES:
Sugarshit Sharp UK test-pressing in plain white sleeve with anti-static lining. Stapled to the cover is an A4 piece of paper featuring the artist, title, tracklisting and the Product Inc. logo.

The record features generic ‘MayKing Records’ labels with the ‘A’, ‘B’ and date stamped on with the catalogue number written in by hand.

Reissued by Mute / Matador on vinyl and CD in 1998.

The run-out groove engraving is identical to the original US pressing with the Caroline catalogue number lightly crossed-out.

Yü-Gung is a cover of a song by Einstürzende Neubauten.

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 a cover of Einstürzende Neubauten (Yü-Gung, released as a 12″ single).
