THE BEATLES 1963 Oxfam Hunger £Million Campaig…

THE BEATLES 1963 Oxfam Hunger £Million Campaign. Rare original UK promotional card, which was sent to people who raised money for the campaign which was launched by Oxfam in 1963 with support from The Beatles. The card features a black & white image of the group on the front with Oxfam’s address at the bottom. The reverse is printed with an image of the campaign poster with facsimile signatures, measuring 5.75" x 8.75" in size. This example remains in fantastic condition with no creases of tears, as this has been stored for fifty-five years in the original mailing envelope with the Oxfam postal franking stamp on the front. A fantastic item in an amazing condition and the first we have ever seen.

Queens of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf” 2…

Queens of the Stone Age “Songs for the Deaf” 2002. An uncharacteristic CD post today because a) we saw QOTSA last night in Madison, b) a vinyl copy is basically unattainable, going for a median price of $230 and c) Josh Homme told a fantastic story last night and I need to write about it here. 

The concert was at the historic Breese Stevens Field, located just a few blocks from the State Capitol building. We met up with a couple of friends who found a good spot on the bleachers to the side of the stage. The guys headed down to the grass to be near the stage once Queens of the Stone Age started playing; I chose to stay bleacher-beached because the dude-brah level at a QOTSA show is way too high for my palate.

To the story! Homme mentioned that he recently turned 45 (so he’s just about 2 years younger than me) and when he was about 18 he lived in Madison and recalled playing shows here with Ween (whether he opened for them or sat in during their performance wasn’t obvious – Homme was clearly, and self-admittedly, wasted last night so not all of his crowd banter was coherent). He then said he bartended at O’Cayz Corral (a bar that I saw many shows at, when I lived in Madison between ‘89-’93 and then later through the 90′s before it burned down in 2001, shows including Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Murder City Devils, Nashville Pussy, and many many more; it’s entirely possible that at one point Josh Homme served me a drink) and “I slept with at least 5 of you. At the same time. This next song is about that,” and launched into “No One Knows.” “No One Knows” was the first single released from Songs for the Deaf which became a huge hit, making it to #51 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #5 on the Mainstream Rock chart and #1 on the Alternative Songs chart. It was nominated for a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy (losing, kinda ironically, to Foo Fighters’ “All My Life” – Dave Grohl drummed for QOTSA on Songs for the Deaf) and Rolling Stone placed it at #97 in their list of Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time. That’s a lot of acclaim given to an experience at a 150-capacity shitty (but awesome!) club in Madison, Wisconsin. 

We get some rules to follow
That and this
These and those
No one knows

We get these pills to swallow
How they stick
In your throat
Tastes like gold

Oh, what you do to me
No one knows

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I
Ah

I journey through the desert
Of the mind
With no hope
I found low

I drift along the ocean
Dead lifeboats in the sun
And come undone

Pleasantly caving in
I come undone

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool I
Ah

Heaven smiles above me
What a gift her below
But no one knows

A gift that you give to me
No one knows

MC5 Kick Out The Jams. Extremely Rare Archive …

MC5 Kick Out The Jams. Extremely Rare Archive Quality 1969 Japanese first press 8-track debut live LP on the blue Elektra ‘guitar player’ label, featuring the uncensored version of the classic title track. Comes housed in a deluxe picture sleeve complete with the super rare & limited wraparound ‘Series No. 7’ full cover die-cut “obi” [the Japanese title is printed “’Kick Out Of The Jams’”]. There is no lyric insert as the Japanese album notes are printed on the back of the obi, exactly how this original pressing was first issued. The sleeve, obi & vinyl are all stunning NEAR MINT with no signs of foxing, a near impossible achievement. There is one tiny blemish of note, which is VERY difficult to spot, even when we tell you what it is. If you look ever so closely to the die-cut sleeve, the most delicate part of the package, there is a tiny 5mm toe part of the ‘K’ missing [yes, it’s a real eye puzzle!]. All in all, a beautiful investment piece. We guarantee you won’t see one as nice as this on the market for many, many years…
