Want the history?
Short version, in the PUNKTOY owner’s own words: “About 40 of these picks were left with me at my job in 2008, along with several flyers for the local upcoming Nosferatour gig… Some people say it didn’t happen, some say they were there, and I was planning to go, but didn’t… Blitzkid didn’t play the tour,… Cancerslug didn’t play. Supposedly the shows went on with at least some of the other bands.”

Longer version at bottom of main description!

These are incredibly rare!
Price is for ONE pick and ONE case! (A maximum of two per order is allowed.)

These picks are a rare piece of official merchandise in the history of 2000’s era Horror Punk and have been stored safely since 2008 when “I brought them all home after the show date had passed. I have sent a few of these out in giveaways and several were passed out to promote the show. I have never seen them anywhere else, though I’m sure they’re out there somewhere. Considering that these are made of a softer material than traditional picks, it’s impossible to guess how many exist. How many got washed and dried or tossed like garbage?”

Blitzkid, Cancerslug, Saturday Night Shockers, Open Casket and more were set to play this tour.

The picks are stored and shipped in protective cases. We recommend using these cases for your collection if you do not already have a better way to store them. The cases may show minor signs of wear.
The picks themselves may show wear of various sorts. Note that they have been safely housed for well over 10 years, though they spent days or weeks in a cardboard box as countertop freebies and many people handled them during that time. The pictures are a general representation and not necessarily of the pick you will receive.

We do not and never will sell a fake or licensed pick as an original band-used item! There is never a guarantee on how many of these will be available at any given time. It may be none, it may be 100. It may be next week, it may be never again! Get them when you can!

LONG VERSION, in the PUNKTOY owner’s own words: “About 40 of these picks were left with me at my job in 2008, along with several flyers for the local upcoming Nosferatour gig. A couple of punk girls came into the shop (a guitar and other instrument store focused on rock, metal, punk, etc). I was sitting there with a mohawk and Misfits shirt on and I suppose they thought they hit the jackpot. I’d passed out flyers and shit before door to door, and you take all the shortcuts you can and that’s what they were doing, rather than hitting the other shops or whatever. So they dumped all the picks and flyers on me.”

“I told them I’d do my best to hand them out and support the show. So anyway, time goes by. As for the show, I don’t know. Some people say it didn’t happen, some say they were there, and I was planning to go, but didn’t. I’ve asked Goolsby (of Blitzkid, Mister Monster, Dr. Chud’s X-Ward, Michale Graves, Gorgeous Frankenstein, & more) about it and he said the tour may have happened but he wasn’t on it. So I know Blitzkid didn’t play the tour, and Alex (Cancerslug, Doyle) supposedly told a friend of mine that they weren’t on it and actually called it ‘the tour that never happened’. So apparently Cancerslug didn’t play. Supposedly the shows went on with at least some of the other bands.”

“It’s really hard to find anything about it but I have talked to a few people, including the person that made the art for the flyers I have. I guess it is just far enough back that it wasn’t plastered all over the internet like it would be now. The whole MySpace to Facebook migration was happening and music was everywhere but things were really in a transitional state. I guess it just kind of got lost.”

“Anyway, I brought them all home after the show date had passed. I have sent a few of these out in giveaways and several were passed out to promote the show. I have never seen them anywhere else, though I’m sure they’re out there somewhere. Considering that these are made of a softer material than traditional picks, it’s impossible to guess how many exist. How many got washed and dried or tossed like garbage? It was never a huge scene, it was only a Texas tour. I doubt that they made more than a few hundred of these at most, but I don’t know until someone tells me. I’m keeping several for myself. Not just as memorabilia but as memories because that was a pretty cool time in my life, anyway.”
