Japanese release on RCA with a plastic inner sleeve, orange RCA labels (white for the promo), a printed band around the sleeve (an OBI strip) and a fold-out insert featuring the same pictures as the UK release but printed back to front. There is a large amount of text in Japanese written by Gaku Torii and Kensho Onuki. From some of text that is in English it seems to cover the history of the band so far, this would make sense as this was the first Subs release in Japan and the only one on RCA.

The reverse of the insert has the lyrics in English and Japanese with some slightly unusual translations; "The girls inside The Marquee, all juiced up to be"
