An ebayer called Burghskin parts with £452 for a rare punk record by a band called the Rebels. The A side is called Suicide which would be my option if the girlfriend ever found out I spent that much on one 7" single. It's on Rigid records, probably the band's own label, and the seller says there were only 250 pressed. He bought it in a shop in Sunderland in 1980, the year it was released. Some of the Rebels went on to play in Red Alert.

The bloke who sold the Rebels 7" must have made a tidy sum this past week. He was also selling other North East punk things like the 1st Red Alert 7", both Disorder's (the Sunderland ones), Crime in a PS and some other nice stuff.

Meanwhile I was bidder 9 on another seller's Horrorcomic "Jesus Crisis" single. My £270 (not far short of my weekly wage!) was £150 less than bidder 8's max. I was both disappointed and relieved at the same time. Still, bidder 8 must have been gutted to lose to 'mailmurder' from Finland with 5 seconds to go.

I want that Horrorcomic record!!!!

James, you probably know that Horrorcomic have a CD compilation which should still be available. It's called England '77 and Jesus Crisis features.

Maybe Bidder 8 felt the same way you did.

James D said...

Yeah, I have the Horrorcomic CD, but you can't beat having an original 7". I don't make a habit of high bids like that, I'm more of a bargain hunter.

I completely understand. I've been after the Evening Outs single for many years. I dread to think what I'd pay for it if it surfaced on ebay.

According to Popsike it was on ebay several years back before I was ebaying. It sold for around £60.
