What's up everyone.. I'm getting ready to sell a bunch of stuff on ebay, to pay for more schoolin'. Things like the first White Stripes 7" as well as THIS:

This is a split 7" with the Oblivians covering AC/DC's "The Jack" b/w the Crime Kaisers doing some other AC/DC song.. I got this in Germany (I think!) when the Dirtys were on tour over there. It came with an issue of the magazine Active Detective, and has only been played like twice, no scratches, etc. I've since heard that the record never had an actual run, and only the test pressings exist, and there's only like eight of them (including mine)? Can anyone verify this? Eric & Greg especially! Thanks in advance..

I will trade a copy of THE OBLIVIANS split w/ Taylor Dayne
only 40 copies, there were more, but Talyor Dayne's record company burned most of the copies beofre they were shipped anywhere. This was back before Taylor Dayne SOLD OUT!!!

I have a whole new respect for The Oblivians knowing this. I had no idea the Oblivians covered and released their own version of The Jack. Eric, you're alright in my book in spite of past silliness (I mean, ain't all of us done silly shit in the past?). Memphis dudes know what time it is, after all. We ain't stuck in one thing or another. Crossover, bleedover is alright. Man, me and Jack Daniels salute you and the Oblivians. I wasn't in tune with the local punk scene when yall were happenin'. Dang! Keep up the good work. Gonerfest is fucking fantastic and unique.
