WHAT I LOST ON EBAY----------Not quite as extinct as the Dodo

A four track EP of great rarity, the Sex, Violence And The Eternal Truth 7" contains contributions from the Dodos, Venom, Lost Boys and What To Wear. The seller had the initiative to treat potential buyers to a clip of What To Wear's We're The Martians Now which was rather wonderful. Slightly superior to anything on their earlier EP which rarely visits ebay, although when it did as a Buy It Now for about £5 I was quick to pounce. My luck ran out around the £60
mark on this though, the final total being £144.

The What To Wear EP came before this release, actually.

The eBay listing for this suggests that it's the Venom's song which was the 'sound clip' provided... wasn't, but should've been! "Later On" is a tremendous track: its structure (short, and ending in a solo) makes it Primal Scream's "Velocity Girl" for the street-punk crowd.

Thanks for the info about what came first. I'll rectify my mistake.
