Here’s a copy from Neil Bramley with some extra Vermiform stamps on the cover.  Here’s his story (I’m not sure having the insert is much help in making sense of the schizophrenic nature of the track selections…):

I came across your blog about the Fear Of Smell album covers. I have no idea how, but anyway. My housemate is roughly your age and recently sold me a heap of records. We live in Brisbane, Australia but over the years he’s done a lot of travelling and collecting, and passed down some pretty mad stuff: the Born Against ‘Eulogy’ 7″ on maroon vinyl with zine, Negazione/Declino split LP, a bunch of Infest bootlegs and originals, No Comment demo 7″ on red and Downsided on clear etc etc… He also threw in the Fear Of Smell comp, which I was already familiar with, but my copy of the second press never had an insert, which as you can imagine, would make it the most confusing record in the world. It also got borrowed and never given back about five years ago. I re-listened to it and found it to be quite a good listen… from buggin’ out to the Eric Wood track, to killing myself laughing at Sam and Joe.
