Tracklisting & More Information

1. Stretcher Case Baby
2. Sick Of Being Sick

This legendary item was given away to punters who attended a series of shows at the original Marquee Club in Soho, London in July 1977 to celebrate the bands first anniversary. Some were also given out via the NME as a competition prize.

The picture sleeve depicts an image which appears to be a skull at first glance but when looked at more closely is an image of a lady looking in the mirror and her reflection. On the reverse are two black & white photos of the band in full manic live on stage action with the 'Stiff Records' logo and the wording 'ISSUED FREE AS FIRST ANNIVERSARY GIFT' underneath.
This sleeve remains in pristine condition & shows the minimum of storage stressing & only the faintest signs of edge scuffing.

The labels have two more skull images. One has the band members heads on and the other has the tracklisting details followed by the wording:

"EASILY DESTRUCTIBLE STEREO

NOT FOR SALE

Special snob collectors artifact of no historical/cultural value. Play it today. Throw it away. Why sell 'em when you can give 'em away."

In the run-out grooves there is the following etching/matrix numbers:

"DAMMED-1-1 I SAID YOU BETTER HAVE THE ALBUM I SAID YOU BETTER HAVE THE ALBUM

DAMMED-2-1 ONE YEAR OLDS"

The vinyl too remains in near 'as new' condition with few signs of play. Even more remarkable considering the method of distribution.

One of the 'Must Have' items from the golden period of the Punk Scene !
