I'm surprised no one encountered this until now! I missed it as well, despite keeping up to date with the Dunlap auctions and stuff. Anyway this is very nice of BF, I wonder if he's into The Replacements or Dunlap. There's a connection between him and Jesperson, in that they both worked with Jon Tiven.
It's Frank Black & The Suicide Commandos. The latter are “the Godfathers of the Twin Cities punk music scene”. Should be an interesting collaboration - apparently they backed David Thomas of Pere Ubu a few years ago too.
it seemed like there were a lot of bidders. i was getting nervous because i lost out on about 15 of them so i said fuck it and bumped my bid to $75 and lo and behold i got one of the cheapest (under $55)....i had mine shipped to my cousin in the states....like i often do with eBay wins. some people really take advantage of Int'l shipping....its annoying. pretty excited though - 1 of 100 and it goes to a great cause.
