Volunteer Wendy drops some seriously rare and incredible eBay bombs this week:
MINISTRY Jesus Built My Hotrod Motor Oil
Yes, you read that correctly. WFMU hawks motor oil. Times are tough, people. Anyway, this was a promo sent to record retailers in 1991. It's never been opened, and if I were you, I'd keep it that way. Don't put it in your car (it's AGED), and as the label warns, "Not to be used as a sexual lubricant."
speaking of which...
BETTY PAGE Jungle Girl in 3-D
It's a comic. A 3-D comic. And two pairs of 3-D glasses come with it. It's a fantastic fetish-o-rama. Yes, Betty gets tied up, she spanks sorority girls, she wears animal prints. A little something for everyone. Except the naysayers at eBay, because they made me put this in the "mature audiences" section, so you need to give a DNA sample just to view the damn listing. It's worth it, though.
and a little closer to home...
HI SHERIFFS OF BLUE s/t LP
Back from the very early 80s, and from downtown NYC. So, it's safe to say this fits into the "New York No Wave" section. I hear it's got a little bit o' Delta Blues in it, too. Oh that Elliot Sharp, what will he think of next? Check out the nice early spring pics of that monument thing in Tompkins Square Park. With graffiti.
Just think... all of this could be yours, if the price is right. Click here to bid!
