EYE ON EBAY-----Off the beaten cycle path

More musical malarkey from one of the Desperate Bicycles, this time Dan Electro, trading under the name Dayshift. Missed out on this one so I've yet to enjoy this dose of delightful insanity. Sold for £52.87.

EYE ON EBAY----The gentle rain of charity falleth upon my head.

Picked this Hot Rain single up in a charity shop about a year ago for £1. Based, I believe, in Southport, they made pleasant indiepop which has traces of the Prefab Sprout minus the arch lyrics. So a little pallid for some tastes, yet this achieved a reasonable return for seller Modboy of £37.

EYE ON EBAY----No Way I''m spending that much

Expect to pay £332 for the No Way single and you would. Possibly the fact that this tasty morsel was signed by three members of the band helped encourage a high return for the seller. Maybe if the reluctant fourth member signed the sleeve the seller might have made more.


Unknown indie effort from some bunch who call themselves Living With Robert. Three ditties called Close To Me/Won't Be Around/Times They Are A-Changin', the last possibly a cover of the Dylan classic. This was released in 1987 on Big Home Productions. Sold for £30.
