It was recorded at the Industrial Records studio."

In each case, the original album is wisely preserved intact on one CD, while a second CD collects period singles, live performances, and a smattering of alternate mixes and unreleased material. Artwork is supplemented with alternate takes from photo-sessions, and it's a jarring experience for collector scum like myself to see and hear these goofy blooper reels and deleted scenes, in which the avatars of colder-than-thou aesthetics stand on one foot or giggle.

Mute are releasing two "40th Anniversary" editions in November. One is an LP pressed on white vinyl, the other a 2CD version which seems to have the same track listing as the remastered double CD from a few years ago...?
Mitars Riders
Yeah, they seems to be strict represses (different vinyl color only).
apparently theres another version of this release that has not been listed yet. i found it in two passed auctions on ebay as "unofficial release" sold for about 30 euro. sleeve has the exact same design as the first industrial records release, and comes with folded black and white insert. its red marbleish vinyl and has IR0002 on center label. a side has the t.g. lightning bolt, b side has the red sticker with titles (a5 is studio and a6 is rat club. in last track "coum" is mis-spelled as "coom"). matrix says SS01. anyone out there knows where that came from?
It's difficult to know which release you have with this one... I have an LP, FR 2001, from Fetish Records, TG lightning on cover, back says (c) 1977 (p) 1978 Fetish Records, "originally released 1977 Industrial Records IR 0002," "RE-CUT MARCH 1979 BY STEVE ANGEL," "Printed in England by Gothic Press Ltd., London SE9 2EQ." The vinyl is red, side A label T.G. lightning bolt, side B label, "It's a Fetish" & track listings for both sides, Matrix run-out difficult to make out... "Assume Power Focus" easy to make out, but seems to be only one side, message scratched on both sides at same place seems to say FR-2001=A and FR-2001=B, but not A2 or B2 as indicated on one Fetish release mentioned here with the "Assume Power Focus" run-out, and no mention of colored vinyl for any of the Fetish releases mentioned here. Is this the 2011 "unofficial" or one of the early Fetish releases? Oh, and a plain white paper inner sleeve and one insert, one-sided, with what looks like news print cut-outs... an article "music from the death factory," a couple shots of Nixon, an piece called "Paranoia Club"... Bought it used, so don't know if there was more or if this is the original inner sleeve. Thanks, if you can help me pin it down.
This record was groundbreaking and stands in a row with releases as "Sgt. Peppers". Definitely the first industrial-album ever, partially recorded in 1976, mostly live, this record founded a new style. It was not hailed at the time of it's release, mostly the contemporary critique and the public couldn't understand the enormous importance of it. TG's famous "Prostitution"-show at the London ICA which took place in parallel to this album's release, caused a nationwide scandal (including a debate on the british parlament) and formed the reputation of TG as the "Wreckers of Civilisation" (as a newspaper named them). From nowadays the "2nd annual report" seems a bit more harmless , but still is a brilliant piece, which can draw you deep into it. It is pure magic.
