Infinity Cat Rarities Auction + 7-Inch Bundle

Holiday season has officially commenced, which means that virtually every publication in the land either has or is about to run some sort of gift guide. "Buy this!" they'll shout. "Your dad will love it!" Well, sorry to add to the legions of voices already shouting for you to be a good American consumer, but if you — or your dad, your mom, your brother or whomever — are a fan of locally based punk-rock label Infinity Cat, then ... well, buy this! Infinity Cat — the label that's home to JEFF the Brotherhood, Natural Child, Diarrhea Planet, Heavy Cream, sometimes PUJOL, Cy Barkley and more — recently blogged that they're hosting a rarities auction via eBay. The auction features dozens of rare items, from test pressings of Natural Child, Diarrhea Planet and JEFF records to the monster from that Be Your Own Pet video, BYOP-themed track shorts (pictured at right) and the original metal stampers for JEFF's We Are the Champions LP (which appear to be just about the hottest ticket they've got going). They're even selling the Cream's one-year anniversary party poster (a print of which is currently hanging on my bedroom wall) and a bottle of Infinity Cat's wine (a bottle of which I once consumed ... not bad). Looks like all of the auctions expire on Wednesday, Nov. 30, so you'd better hop in there and start bidding. Ten percent of all proceeds, by the way, will benefit the Southern Girls Rock 'n' Roll Camp.

In addition to all of the rare gems I.C. is now putting up via eBay, they're also currently offering a 7-inch bundle deal. The bundle features eight singles — 7-inches from PUJOL, Natural Child, Denney and the Jets and Cy Barkley among them — and costs a mere $25. Funny story: My pal recently ordered the aforementioned bundle, which he accidentally had shipped to his parents' house. My pal and his father happen to have the same first name, so pal's dad opened what he thought was a package addressed to him, where he found something labeled "Diarrhea Planet" and something else with the words "Fuck you!" on it. Pal's dad was confused.
