I've got one of these. The Consultant was selling them donkey's ago. I may have doubled up on some white labels. I'll have to look.
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

There seems to have been a rise in Cardiac Arrest A Bus... EP's recently. The latest one, available on FeeBay as I write this, had me laughing inside. M- / M- condition! Yeah, and the Pope's going to convert to Satanism!!! I can't vouch for the vinyl, but I'm guessing it's not M- condition. As for the cover, M- would signify that it has extremely minimal damage and it is almost like it was bought originally. Except, it has visible ring wear on the back cover and there is at least one bend on the front of the cover. I'd say it was more VG+ / VG. I'm using my own copy as a yardstick, which is in much, much better condition.

My copy is M-/M- so there may be a couple of others out there

My copy is also M- / M-, but that copy on FleeceBay definitely isn't. I know I'm being a vinyl snob, but I don't get out much :lol:

Ah, just had a good look at the listing and I see what you mean Dr T!
(Crazy price now and still 5 days to go. BSI is only 3rd at the moment...)
