Ebay item: Do any forum members own this ?

Postby North Sea Radio SOS » Mon May 26, 2014 15:54

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cardiacs-WIKIP-wbr-EDIA-by-Russell-Jesse-55110091-wbr-56-BOOK-ON-DEMAND-LTD-Paperback-/171341360265?&_trksid=p2056016.m2516.l5255

Says it's Cardiacs Wikipedia ( description refers to the band, toward the bottom of the page ).

Is this literally the Wiki page(s) regarding Cardiacs, copied and pasted into a document, so they could print it in a book and charge 19 odd quid for it ??!

Or has this book been around for a while ? Says it's Date of Publication is 02/09/2012 though...

Yea, it's a rather common trick, print Wikipedia articles sell them online. Not sure there are many people silly enough to fall for it though. Not much to see here anyway.
