It's a mad scramble in C86 world as Book Em Danno's 12" Papa's Gone And Got A Brand New Disease makes its probable debut on ebay. I'm floundering around with a conservative bid and am left gasping as Yaakkii arrests it for £65. So it's off to Japan. We give them so much and what do they give us, raw fish. (OK, they aren't too bad with electrical goods and cars).
A hefty windfall in Cyprus as a seller there nets a £178.05p for the Deaf Aids Do It Again EP. I submitted a negligent amount and was roundly set upon by fellow bidders. Originally known as Charles Hawtrey And The Deaf Aids they formed in Sheffield in 1978. Only 250 pressed so if they sold the lot today they would secure a place in the top twenty. The seller let bidders hear a snatch of the single. What I heard enabled me to suppress my renegade nature; it was a reasonable effort but until I've vast amounts of disposable income I'll not suffer sleepless nights on letting it go to some unknown bidder. What I want to know is how the seller spent that 5p.
