Auction for Anna Ives - BID NOW!

And a 1975 Black Oak Arkansas t-shirt could be yours.

Venerable Memphis indie label and store Goner Records has been releasing titles by punk/garage acts such as the Oblivians, Guitar Wolf, the Reigning Sound, Jay Reatard, King Khan & BBQ, and Eddy Current Suppression Ring since 1993.

Safe to say there are probably many places Goner co-owner Zac Ives would rather be than in Boston today. But he’s here. Because today his four-year-old daughter Anna starts treatment at Mass General after having two tumors removed from her brain in less than two years. (MGH is one of just four hospitals in the country with the targeted proton radiation treatment need to stop the tumors from returning, and is the only one with experience doing the procedure on kids.)

Owning an indie label doesn’t pay as much as, say, working on Wall Street (even these days) which is why Goner co-owner Eric Friedl has set up an auction — bidding for which ends tonight at 8 p.m. — to help defray the cost of Anna’s medical treatment and of the Ives’ eight-week stay in Boston.

Alas, the Stratocaster signed by Genesis P-Orridge has already been sold. But there are still some excellent treasures to be found.

Like, say, a Gibson Flying V ($300!!!) or the Scharpling and Wurster Super Fun Pack or some original comic book art signed by Cheap Trick's Robin Zander or photos of Johnny Ramone, Joey Ramone, and Debbie Harry or a vintage Hawkwind poster or the “fiend club” edition of the Misfits’ Evilive 7" or an autographed Jerry Lee Lewis Sun LP.

Or you can just click here to donate directly, or send checks to Zac Ives c/o Goner Records, 2152 Young Ave, Memphis, Tennesse 38104.
