BIFFY CLYRO AUCTION OFF RARITIES FOR TSUNAMI DISASTER APPEAL

The Scots rockers do their bit for the appeal...

Biffy Clyro are auctioning off a stash of ultra-rare memorabilia in aid of the tsunami relief fund.

The Scottish rockers, famed for their devoted following, are hoping that the promise of hard-to-find goodies will raise money. A posting on their website reads: “(the disaster) puts into perspective how trivial certain things are, and like many other people, has inspired us to try and do our part to help.

“We’re going to auction off a few things from the Biffy Clyro cupboard, to try and raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee, who are working to help the victims of the tsunami.

On offer are singer/guitarist Simon Neil’s silver Fender Stratocaster which was used during the recording of debut album ‘Blackened Sky’, and a signed copy of their ultra-rare debut four-track EP ‘thekidswhopoptodaywillrocktomorrow’.

Other lots include a signed, well-worn drumskin from drummer Ben Johnston, out-of-print ‘Blackened Sky’ and ‘Holiday Resort’ T-shits and an AAA laminate from their 2004 tour.

The auction starts today (January 21) on official website.

Meanwhile, [a][/a] release ‘Only One Word Comes To Mind’, the fourth single from current album ‘Infinity Land’, on February 14.
