collector alert: rare maynard memorabilia up for auction

It’s just been brought to my attention by a former bandmate that someone is offering three of our old, rare singles on Ebay. So, if you’ve never heard the music of Prehensile Monkey-Tailed Skink before, here’s your chance… My first guess was that it was our old friend Pete putting them up for sale, but I think he’d use different phrases than “manic fuzz-damage,” “spazzed-out racket,” and “childish noise” to describe our work. (I think all those descriptions are legitimate, by the way, I just think that Pete would have used different ones.) Now, I’m thinking that maybe my parents are selling the stuff I have stored in their basement. (The last time I went home, I found my dad burning some of my stuff for heat, so this wouldn’t surprise me one bit.)

    Technically, I’m not a former bandmate.

    We were formerly in that band together, were we not?

    Yes, we are still in another band together (The Monkey Power Trio), but, in terms of Prehensile Monkey-Tailed Skink, I maintain that we are former bandmates.

    I suppose we’re both right.

    I just checked and there’s not one single bid yet. I guess there aren’t too many people out there on the web trying to track down vinyl from obscure midwestern noise bands in the early 90’s.
