EYE ON EBAY-----Oooooh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

Seller claims to have rescued this Obtainers single from Crawley tip. (I remember buying my copy in a long defunct record shop in Putney on the strength of a favourable review in the NME). Quite what he or she was doing scrambling around in such an environment one can only wonder though perhaps this will encourage legions of record collectors to get down and dirty in their local waste. I'd advise against it as there are enough wee-smelling sorts ambling around record fairs, my stamina for stinky obsessives can only extend so far; what is it with some collectors, are they afraid of soap? Anyway despite last month's Record Collector featuring this single with a price tag of £1000 the Crawley-tip crawler secures under half that, £454.
