Cut of destiny.
Over the weekend, Flightless Records listed a whole heap of goodies on eBay to raise money for those affected by the bushfires.
Amongst the haul of signed records and posters, however, came a unique piece of music memorabilia in the form of a signed baggie containing hair clippings. The listing, now up to 29 bids, is simply titled “Amyl and the Sniffers’ mullets”.
“Absolute legends Amyl and the Sniffers have donated chunks of their ARIA winning mullets to raise money for victims of the bushfires! Chuck em on your wall, get some fresh extensions or clone your own punk band! It’s all for a good cause!” reads the ad.
Starting at a humble $26.50, the mullet clippings have proved a hot commodity, now sitting at $203.
As well as donating their hair, the band have also contributed a signed ‘Starfire Pink’ vinyl copy of their self-titled LP, as well as a signed test-pressing and an autographed poster. Other offerings from the label include signed test-pressings and LPs from Leah Senior, Stonefield, Pipe Eye and Traffik Island.
100 per cent of the proceeds from the auctions will be donated to Wildlife Victoria, Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities, Community Enterprise Foundation Bushfire Disaster Appeal, Seed and WIRES. Flightless Records have also announced they will be adding more items over the coming weeks.
