The strangest thing you've seen on a merch table?
For me, the merch table is a major part of the gig experience. A place where the band can meet and greet after the show and of course generate some useful income. Japanese bands seem to particularly good at offering a broad range of interesting merch from badges to strange articles that glow in the dark.
Last night at Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Dawn McCarthy's blisteringly good gig at Kägelbanan here in Stockholm, there was an impressive range of stuff. The great man himself even put in a brief appearance, signed CDs and had his photo taken with fans.
So what was on offer? CDs, LPs, EPs, T shirts and, last but not least, specially produced BPB condoms. I bet you don't get those at Justin Bieber gigs. BPB comes across as a strange hybrid of demon preacher and strangely unsettling ladies man, so it was completely appropriate.
But what is the most imaginative, peculiar or downright wacky item you've seen on a merch table?
