VERY RARE! MINT VINYL, cover slight wear. Originally 800 copies were pressed but 500 were lost on the way to Bomp Records in Los Angeles via ship. Only 300 copies remained.
Sleeve states 'Stiv Bators and the Dead Boys' although Stiv was the only former Dead Boy on this record.
(TRIVIA - [from label owner]: the reason it was released as by Stiv Bators and the Dead Boys, is because an Aussie promoter was going to tour the band here, but he wouldn't take the risk of doing so without the Dead Boys name tagged on - thus Stiv agreed to tour under that name...and we agreed to release this 45 on the back of the tour. On the very SAME day as this was released [20 July 1980] the promoter called us to say he'd decided to pull out of the tour. And thus, the likelihood of us selling a 45 that had already been out here on import, was minimal. I spoke to Greg Shaw about the whole scenario and he agreed to buy 500 of the 800 run we pressed, at cost price admittedly, to alleviate our perceived 'burden'. Those 500 were lost in transit to the U.S., via ship, and have never surfaced. Richard Allen, who a few years later came up with most of the iconic early 100% Mambo surfwear designs - farting dog, etc - designed the cover of this 45 - NOT that he's credited.)
