Together with our friends at Maximum Rock N Roll, Pirates Press Records is holding a charity auction for a one-of-a-kind full set of Cock SParrer test pressings, contributing to the fund established to help secure a spot for Bruce in San Francisco's legendary Columbarium. 

Bruce had taken many of his friends, both locals and out of towners, to the Columbarium in San Francisco where he had happily made his home since the mid-80's. Built in 1898, this San Francisco landmark is home to the memorial sites of some of SF's founding families as well as some of its more notorious occupants such as Dirk Dirksen (Punk music promoter nicknamed "The Pope of Punk"). It is a non-denominational memorial site that Bruce loved for its beauty, craftsmanship, tranquility and the place that his memorial service was held. The proceeds from our auction will go to fund a spot in the columbarium for Bruce, a place that is truly worthy of his memory.

The records themselves (which were supposed to end up in Bruce's collection as a thank you for loaning us his copies to help prepare for reissuing these records later this year) are packaged in a one of a kind 12" slipcase, including a screen print from our friends at Firehouse Kustom Rock Art and a copy of the MRR issue with Cock SParrer on the cover (and an interview by Bruce) - both autographed by all members of the band! 

This is truly a one-of a kind collectors item and
ALL PROCEEDS will go to BRUCE'S FUND. 

The package includes:

• Shock Troops (LP Test Press)
• Runnin' Riot '84 (LP Test Press)
• True Grit Outtakes (LP Test Press)
