Buy Los Campesinos! First Glockenspiel, Help Haiti

Gareth of Los Campesinos! has put the band's first-ever glockenspiel on Ebay and it can be yours if the price is right! As of writing this, the glockenspiel has received 25 bids and is up to 180 British pounds sterling. Here's what Gareth has to say about it:
"It is featured on our initial demo recordings, their Sticking Fingers Into Sockets EP and their debut album Hold On Now, Youngster... . It was also used in approximately our first fifty live performances. Taking in shows in the UK, Europe and their first ever gig in the US, at Lollapalooza festival. I have treated it sternly but sensually. I will also throw in some 7"s of our previous singles. Some very limited edition. ALL MONEY RAISED FROM THE SALE OF THIS ITEM WILL BE DONATED TO THE AID RELIEF IN HAITI. The glockenspiel will be signed by all band members, past and present, upon request. Please bid generously to own this piece of ROCK MUSIC HISTORY, and to donate to a very worthy cause."
So, if you want to own this piece of history and want to help support the relief efforts in the Haiti, now is the time!
