Complete with the original flexi-disc single Love Lies Limp by Alternative TV on SG Records as issued with number 12.

NME acclaimed "Sniffin' Glue" as "the nastiest, healthiest and funniest piece of press in the history of rock'n'roll habits" and it became the true chronicle of the early days of British punk rock as well as pioneering the DIY punk ethic. Fearing absorption into the mainstream music press, Perry ceased publication in 1977 with issue 12. OCLC records just one incomplete set in the USA and none in the UK.
