BIFFY CLYRO VS FAN FOR CHARITY

Biffy Clyro
Biffy Clyro have slammed a 'fan' who snapped up some of the band's clothes which they donated to a Glasgow charity shop and subsequently listed for sale on internet auction site eBay.

And the Scottish rockers have also labeled the seller a liar for falsely claiming the jacket they are trying to sell appeared on a Biffy album cover. On Sunday afternoon the band posted a message on their Facebook advising fans of where to grab a piece of the Biffy wardrobe: "Anyone around Glasgow's west end…? You might want to check out Oxfam Music, Byres Rd shortly… We cleared out our dressing room wardrobe."

The Tweet prompted a rapid response from their army of local fans in their home country who reportedly stripped the shelves in the store within five minutes. Reports suggest the coffers of the Glasgow charity shop were boosted by a whopping £500 by the sale of the band's new and second hand gear. However, just a couple of days later and the eagle-eyed band spotted someone trying to make a quick buck by reselling some of their charity shop stock on eBay
