 Really great B side too:

TV Smith regularly plays both sides at his gigs still, and they still set the place on fire!

 Loved the concept of this song at the time and bought the record. Wikipedia says that Gilmore's corneas actually were used as transplants so someone out there has/had 'em.

 Just noticed that the sailor in the logo on the back has his eyes censored as well. But you probably knew that.

 i got 2 sleeves both the same, one with push out identical to sladesounds copy
the other with solid centre almost identical to copy uploaded by the judge
my copy hasn't got the writing above the sailors head will sort out scans later
push out centre has typeface matrix, solid centre has hand etched matrix

 I've got both sleeve designs, one with the push-out centre (as per Sladesounds) and one solid centre (as per TheJudge). The solid centre is in the pink Gary sleeve, and the push-out in the white Gary.

 The Adverts were brilliant, true punks and Gary Gilmore's eyes was one of the great punk songs, Gay Advert was so cool!
I went to a hotel in the west country and the guy who owned it was their manager, he retired burnt out!
