 Aye biggie tembo I have the same deadwax matrix as yerself for the mis press.

The original deadwax reads VS 240 A7 tone (or +one)
and VS 240 B6
and the same as I said as what you have quoted for the unusual oddity.

 I got the Silly Thing mispressing on the A-side. The cover is exactly the same as images 431770 & 893705

Matrix is:
Side A: VS-240. A-4 tone
Side B: VS-240-B-7

 I remember taking great delight in playing the B-side on the juke box in the bar at my then-employer's sports and social club, in the early evening when there was no background noise to drown out the words. Well, there was f*** all else to do!

 Bought this in 79 from a record shop locally called ma dobb's who's son owned the shop she being in her 60s at the time anyway took the foresaid disc home played it and found that something else was in fact silly thing so went bk and complained she got all flustered and said here's another which was checked and correct didn't realise at the time that it was a mispress still retain the singles dont know if there was many mispress's of this disc.

Too right we used to have some great sing songs in our local pub.

Places actually allowed the B-Side in a Juke Box? lol

 I didn't buy any Sex Pistols 45's after "Holidays In The Sun" , find the "Swindle" stuff embarassing, and none more so than the b-side of this. Cringeworthy!

 Oh thanks a Charity Shop. MonkeyHanger you should have bought it, it's rarer then the normal release.

 A Chazza is a Charity Shop. Record collectors are too busy on their knees flipping through records to have much breath for saying whole words.

Thanks for the Black and White labels but an ordinary issue with a large hole in it thus removing text is a Dinked record and not a juke box copy. We only display them in the absence of any other label.

 Black and White labels added + Juke Box copy.

What's a Chazza?

 Saw a version of this in a Chazza today with Black and White labels!
