Yea, but techincally in the world of collecting that's not a Cardiacs item it's a P3TE item.

Can someone tell me what difference is between Day Is Gone CD and 12"

I have 12"

I have Susannahs Still Alive 12" - rare? Who gives a flying, when 'Swans' rips its merry little way out of the speakers, all on that big old one sided glory.......

Nothing, apart from the fact the 12" initially came with the Sea Nymph's Appealing To Venus 7" as a free gift. Saying that, the CD is quite rare and quite expensive when it appears on eBay!

the 12" came with a lyric sheet too...

well - I'm assuming it did, although mine didn't have one when I bought it
although I picked one up when they were freely distributed at a gig around the same time......

Seaside bag WITH rock intact and uneaten.
Toy World/Ob Id tapes.
The FIRST Cardiacs watch from 1999 - unbroken in the carry case (the ones where the straps all self destructed). Not the reissue.
Cardiacs Dressing Gown.
Cardiacs Wall Clock.
Cardiacs Alarm Clock.
Cardiacs Bath Towel.
The 80s Little Man hat.
Cardiac Arrest shirts or badges (I own a few real ones).
Signed Bus 7" with Mike Pughs name on it, but they used to sign the back so hard they would render the record unplayable so many were binned...

First Cardiacs watch from 99?? Nahhhh... I remember losing one at Reading in 92.
