 According to an old Strangled magazine article from the '80s, they went into the furnace. The burning was apparently strictly supervised - but the worker quoted still managed, so he said, to smuggle three copies away...

 blackmail sleeve
i wonder what happened to the ones that were destroyed
maybe they burnt them
then again they might have crushed them

 UA advert from Music Week - 7th May '77. A bit of overlap there, but... I didn't fancy splitting Dave's head in half! Just looking through my notes made at the time and I have 'Peaches' as being re-released on 23rd March '79, which is when the 'new' sleeve came into being. All their singles were re-released in May '79, which may explain some minor variations to labels and sleeve openings.

 I think the 'Peach' sleeve was designed by John Pasche (who designed all the stranglers album and single sleeves in 1979). I think he was asked to design another sleeve because 'Peaches' re-entered the singles chart in 1979.

 The 1985 Music Master gives a release date of April 1979; this was presumably when it was reissued with the 'peach' sleeve.

 Just found the "blackmail" sleeve on Musicstack, as it's described, with a clear vinyl single though the catalogue number on the label is FREE4. Unfortunately the seller has strategically placed the label over the corener of the sleeve where the catalogue number is so I can't compare it. I can say it'll set you back £150!

 The radio-play version appears on the 1988 EMI "Liberty" compilation album "Rarities". The single was also re-issued at a later date on the "Liberty" label.

 The 'peach' sleeve illustrated is a later issue - from 1980, so I've read. The original sleeve had the same band photo on both sides with the song titles in 'punk rock' cut-out letters; the band were appalled and ordered its withdrawal before the single reached the shops (though, as always in these cases, a few leaked out and are now very expensive collectors' items).

MonkeyHanger - the version you mention was issued on a promo 45 with the catalogue number FREE 4, and is itself worth a few bob.

No, I don't have copies of either. I wish!

 Heres another 45 changed for the Beeb.

Lyrics altered were "Oh No.." instead of "Oh Sh*t"

The word "Clitoris" was replaced with "Bikini"..and "Bummer" with "Summer".
