PUNK SELLS OUT AT CHRISTIES AUCTION
Today in New York Christies auctioneers held its first Punk Rock auction-as the Village Voice reports-
Christie’s Nov. 24 "Pop Culture: Punk/Rock" auction is now available for online inspection. The sale features "a collection of memorabilia from the Ramones to The Clash and The Sex Pistols". The venerable auction house is older than the United States, so this is presumably not their first sale to dabble in controversy. But it is almost definitely the first Christie’s auction to feature a depiction of elbow-deep fisting, chest-splooging, and no less than five throbbing monster cocks in one lot ("Fuck Your Mother T-Shirt", est. $1,000 – $1,500). Question; if one shells out $1k – $1.5k for a vintage punk porno t-shirt, is it to be worn with an extra helping of pride, or shame?
