Local doom merchants Seventh Rule are known for putting out metal records of an ass-beatingly heavy nature, but at heart they're a bunch of softies. Example: their current eBay auction of a lot of rare and out of print vinyl to benefit the Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation, which saves not only pit bulls and stuff but cute little kittens as well.
Here's what's being offered:
BURIED AT SEA Â SHE LIVED FOR OTHERS BUT DIED FOR US (SWIRLED GREY VINYL, LTD TO 200 PRESSED, OUT OF PRINT)
INDIAN Â THE UNQUIET SKY 2xLP (RED SPLATTER VINYL, LTD to 99 PRESSED, OUT OF PRINT)
AKIMBO Â ELEPHANTINE (BLACK VINYL, 542 PRESSED, OUT OF PRINT)
AKIMBO Â CITY OF THE STARS LP (PARANOID RECORDS PRESSING, LTD GREY VINYL)
SWEET COBRA Â PRAISE (RED VINYL, LTD to 200 PRESSED, w/ 2 SIDED SCREENED POSTER)
INDIAN Â SLIGHTS AND ABUSE (LTD CLEAR VINYL, LTD to 177 PRESSED)
The bidding's currently just past the hundred dollar mark, which is an absolute steal for what's up for grabs here. If the pairing of Indian and "red splatter vinyl" alone isn't worth at least that much, I don't know what is.
