Note: Many Sordide Sentimental releases came in a clear plastic bag with the Sordide Sentimental logo. However in 2009 Jean-Pierre Turmel stated that this was not the case for this particular release:"The first copies of the Joy Division single (maybe around the first 1000) were sold WITHOUT a bag, and the last ones with a blank plastic bag (without any printing). We took this decision because we found this was a very fragile packaging. This is true also for the Throbbing Gristle "we hate you" single. I don't remember exactly when the the printed (with logo) appeared but it was posterior to the JD single".
