Well, thinking about it, it was reasonably similar to the Breakfast of Champions (BOC) mix that came out in 2004. So I guess it could be callled an early version of the BOC mix.

I had one of those, subway size and all. Got mine at university in the 90s. Died of overuse a few years later.

One that has survived is my subway "Temptation" Ally Pally NYE 1999 poster.

Similar to this

Slightly less cool but certainly more unique was a huge London Records 3D foam display for "Republic" that I annoyed 78s Records in Perth into giving me in 1993. The street gymnastics it took for me to get that miles down the road into a truck in one piece in high velocity Perth winds should've won me some fan award.

It was quite the party piece until someone drunkenly bowled into it in 1996. Kind of fitting maybe. Wish I at least had a damn photo of it now.

Posters, yes I had a few back in the 80s but one reason and another they’re now all long gone. Guess the idea of having posters on my wall was something I grew out of. I had that Factus 8 one, it covered almost ceiling height to floor on my bedroom wall at the house I grew up in. Also even had Thieves Like Us one. And one with 1981 era photos of the 4 band members. Also had a massive one of the Low Life cover. Oh and a Perfect Kiss one( with a kind of a theme based on the video). Slightly annoying I no longer have any of them.

Edit: The Perfect Kiss poster was something like this , though from Googling, there’s a few variations on it

Yeah, had LowLife, Electronic and that Benelux poster up, but it's a bit adolescent innit? 'They're me favourite band!'

☝️ complete with 1988 Brazilian "Tutti Frutti" promo 12" sleeve image, which never should have been on there IMHO.

EDIT oops, I mean '89.
I don't think I've ever heard these medleys/Megamixes

Framed pixelated version of the 12"s montage they did for New Order 30.
