Release Notes

  • Label: Scarabeus
  • Cataloge No.: SR 104
  • Format: 12" vinyl LP
  • Date of Release: 1992


  • Allegedly a limited edition of 1.000 copies.
  • The title In Red is not directly stated on the cover but has been adopted widely,
maybe due to the colour of the print; it does appear on the spine of the cover, however,
together with the catalogue#.
and The Damage Done - Adrenochrome. Apart from the format, they only differ in as far as
- the background here is black and white on the singles' covers, and
- the lines at the bottom, black here as well, are purple or blue on the covers of the 7"s.
It is not known, however, which of the two bootlegs was released first.
  • The track lists on the cover back and on the labels are wrong.
The first two tracks are given as Teachers and Adrenochrome,
while the album actually starts with Floorshow and Lights.
These two tracks are then repeated (just as listed under A3 and A4).
  • Furthermore, there are some misspellings on the cover and the labels:
Adrenochrome is listed as "Adrenachrome" and Sister Ray is modified into "Sisters"

For recent price developments see sistersbootlegs/In Red or popsike/In Red
