Sleeve condition: Excellent (light signs of careful handling. one or two very light/minor insignificant spine/seam creases of no consequence. no seam wear of even remotest significance whatsoever. tiniest circa 2mm spot inconsequential wear bottom right corner, most sellers would not even see it let alone mention it. overall a really excellent sleeve, most sellers would likely just call it near mint) Note: Anything that may look remotely like wear on bottom seam in photo is definitely not wear, simply light reflection.

Vinyl condition: Excellent-+-+ (looks lightly played. light signs of careful handling. light signs minor paper lines/scuffs with some just a touch more pronounced but nothing that looks at all likely to affect playback. there is a tiny little 'looks like' an indent spot that is definitely from manufacture. overall very decent vinyl. remember it is an unofficial release)

This Night Has Opened My Eyes




I have a collection of literally thousands of 10", 12" & LP Punk/Post Punk/Indie/New Wave/Alternative/Industrial/Shoegazer/Garage Rock/Lo-Fi/Thrash/Space Rock/Electronic/Avant-Garde/Reggae vinyl records. I am a private collector not a dealer and any items I sell will be from my personal collection. I will not be listing prolifically but will be doing so from time to time and often with some rare and collectable items. Please check my other auctions and keep an eye out for future listings.


Every record I have ever acquired has been placed immediately into a brand new PVC cover to protect the outer sleeve and where applicable vinyl has been removed from inner picture sleeve and placed into a poly-lined paper sleeve to protect both vinyl and inner sleeve. As such every record I have bought new remains basically 'as new' or as close to it as you are likely to get no matter how old it may be. However, I have not bought every record in the collection new and therefore where this applies my methods will have kept the item in the same condition as it was when I acquired it. I will to the best of my ability follow the grading system used by ‘Record Collector’ (see below) but I may add a + or – to a grading to help fine-tune the condition report. The age and rarity of an item may also tweak the grading. Please note that vinyl will be visually graded only. Furthermore, I will grade as strictly as I can while attempting to draw a fair and reasonable balance between honest appraisal and not wanting to put a buyer off by over analysing the item for sale. Condition is often a matter of personal judgement, however, in all the years I have been buying and selling records I would have to say that my definition of any given grade tends to be significantly stricter than the majority. I have often had an item sold to me as mint or excellent that I did not consider it to be as such and would have given a lower grade. 


Record Collector’s grading system


MINT: The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as sealed or un-played should be mint. ??


EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing. ??


VERY GOOD: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.


??GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.??


FAIR: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.


POOR: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise, etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing. 


BAD: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection-filler.




Terms & conditions


I describe every item for sale as accurately as possible and provide as much information as I can or that is deemed necessary for a particular sale. I welcome any questions prior to auction end and I will do my utmost to provide an accurate reply (due to other commitments I cannot guarantee a reply to any question sent within the last 12 hours of the auction). 


Communication is the major factor with eBay, as we all want to avoid any possibility of a bad experience. Please make sure you ask any questions you have before auction ends and if you have any doubts then it is possibly better not to bid. Once the transaction is completed I will only accept an item to be returned if it can be proved that I have in some way mistakenly misrepresented it. In any such circumstances communication is again the key, as any problems can always be resolved. As with all auctions buyer remorse or change of mind is not an acceptable reason for return and would make it unfair on others who may have submitted bids.


Payment conditions & postage


NOTE: After 2 years I have had to reluctantly increase my UK postage costs. Royal Mail prices increased from April 2017 combined with additional costs of purchasing record mailers and cardboard stiffeners have combined to cause the increase.
UK buyers I accept PayPal or bank transfer. Alternative payment methods may be accepted but must be by prior agreement before auction closes.

International buyers I accept PayPal only. No exceptions. 

Payment is expected within 3 days of auction end. If no payment or contact has been made within this period I reserve the right to cancel the sale. 
Postage costs will be added to the final bid price.
Postage/Shipping details:Standard delivery for UK orders:x1 LP/12"/10" £4.25 plus only £1.00 for up to 4 additional items. Maximum postage cost £5.25 (as long as package does not exceed 2kg)
Standard delivery is Royal mail 2nd Class 'Signed For'Standard delivery for European (EC) orders:1 LP/12"/10" £6.99 plus only £1.70 for each additional item (please note: Double LPs count as 2 items)*** VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BELOW REGARDING INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE *** Standard delivery for Rest of World (inc Non EC) orders1 LP/12"/10" £10.99 plus only £3.00 for each additional item (please note: Double LPs count as 2 items)*** VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BELOW REGARDING INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE ***
Please note: Some LPs that come in gatefold sleeves or with heavy vinyl or with additional items such as CDs or 7" singles will be charged for postage as 2 items.
I genuinely do not attempt to make money from postage but do do need to protect myself. I will do my utmost to ensure postage costs are kept fair and to a minimum BUT I will never compromise on packaging just to achieve a lighter parcel and cheaper postage. 
All records will be sent in purpose made mailers with vinyl taken out of picture sleeves (inner & outer) and placed in a paper sleeve to prevent seam splits during transit. At least two cardboard stiffeners will be used and sleeve may be extra protected, where required, in PVC cover within package. Please note: If an item is sealed it will be posted still sealed unless buyer requests otherwise.
Due to a horrible experience caused by a very dishonourable and I believe totally dishonest eBay member, coupled with eBay's completely inflexible terms & conditions I now reserve the right to impose tracked shipping on any international transaction where I believe it is pertinent to do so. The extra cost will be £5.00. Please do not make payment until you receive an invoice. If you make payment without tracked payment and I decide that tracked shipping is required then you will receive an additional invoice for £5.00. Please note: Tracked shipping is likely to be compulsory for all orders over £20.00. 
I ask you all to accept all the above terms & conditions if partaking in my auctions. If you are unable to do so then it may may be better not to bid.
