Cosmic Psychos. Released on Sub Pop on red (1,000) and black vinyl, which, interestingly, seem to go for similar prices. Also released on a whole bunch of other labels in different countries. The Australian one (which, I assume, is the original) is the most expensive. The German one existed on brownish-red vinyl and black vinyl (the black one had a bonus 7"). It was reissued in 2013 as a joint release on Aarght! and Goner Records on both blue/yellow split and black vinyl.
