Black Cardiacs tennis shirt for sale or swap

Postby Stoneage Dinosaurs » Mon Jan 10, 2011 17:19

I have for sale an all black Cardiacs tennis shirt. I bought it at an Apollo gig in the early-mid 00's. They only had Large left but I went for it (optimistically) anyway and of course it's never really fit me, too tight, so I've never ever, not once, worn it other than to see if it fits me yet. So it's still very black as I haven't ever washed it never having worn it for more than a few seconds. It has the little man house logo on left breast. You can see it here: http://www.cardiacs.com/merchandise/t-shirts/ - called by the US term polo shirt

Waddaya think sell it or exchange it here or sell it on e-bay? :wink: I'd like it to go to a good home :) In other words I don't want to make loads of money out of this "out of stock" item from the mad uber-rich completist on e-bay. I'd like primarily to swap it for another Cardiacs item with another average Cardiacs fan, who isn't made of money. Or even sell it.

I'm prepared to swap it for one or more of the more recent singles/albums that I haven't got. Ditzy Scene, also later ORG CD single with Mr & Mrs & Sea Nymphs tracks or an NSRO CD or anything new by the Stars in B.

Make me an offer via PM cash or swap. Also YOU pay postage (just as with ebay etc.). I say that because anything larger than a letter posted overseas from Sweden costs a lot. This shirt will cost me about £9 alone to post.

Right, I've had a few offers here. And one from elsewhere.I'll leave the bidding open for a while more to see what comes in before I say yay or nay to anyone.

She once was, for a very short while :D but we're good friends now and record something from time to time... she sang (sung?) also on Anything I can't eat and on Rollercoaster on my solo cd...
Her name is Dominique D'Avanzo :)

If I may, most humbly, it's I sing, I sang, I have sung. If you know things like that, you know more than most English people.

Heheh, 'have understood', as you know very well young man. It's a bloody mess of a language, we should all speak Turkish really.

This is her myspace page... the first song, a cover of Madonna's Ray of Light, is something we did in 2003 with a casio keyboard... :)

Send her a pic of you standing there wearing only your tight tennis shirt Stoney, you never know.


My friend refers to Joanna Newsom, since I tried to make him like her, as Joanna Nuisance. :)
