    I've had good luck with Celga in the past. I recently used White Rabbit for something. I liked how they were very communicative. Answered all my questions timely. I've not purchased anything from Mercari but both services do work with Mercari. (I just looked it up and Celga sometimes gives discounts for Mercari purchases. White Rabbit has a "how to shop Mercari" post.)

    It's a shame because it's a very nicely produced CD. Too bad the only way to get it is to deal with the criminal who probably sank EOD. (GPK just drove the final nail into the coffin lid ::meev::)

    Back in the day, I ordered one before all this came to light, and just rode it out till I eventually got a copy.

    EDIT: By the way, for any latecomers trying to decipher those threads after the fact:
    Geisha and Case were "insiders", they ran the only authorized EOD fansite and had some degree of contact with EOD's management.
    Amasanin ("mort") was one of our two original admins, before I took the wheel.
    They were all fairly plugged into the gothic scene so they had some idea what was going on with that Alfred guy.

    I just spent a couple of hours reading the archives and I had no idea about the GPK part hahaha

    The whole EoD thing is very unfortunate. I think it's my favorite project musically by Mizer's bandmembers after MM..

    I have a question about them, does anyone know where the spiderb cd come from ? I started coming to this forum in 2011, much after it's heyday, so I feel like there's a lot of obvious information (to original posters) that I can't seem to access.

    I've been looking a long time too for the SpiderB demo, but haven't found it yet.

    I think it came packed in a magazine, a lot of those EOD promos were from random goth magazines.

    Thanks for the info ! I'll be on the lookout. Old magazines are usually pretty easy to find.

    So is this the same 'Parfume Noire' as the German fragrance manufacturer?

    Edit:

    Checked the CCP web page and it looks like they are the same! How surprising, I've been using that brand for a while now.

    Hey, the perfume is good and it actually arrived. Maybe he has turned a new leaf in life?

    That said... the last order I placed has been delayed due to him attending a festival...

    Can someone give me an overview or a link to what happened? I missed the whole GPK saga.

    Eve of Destiny's last known appearance was flying all the way out to Australia, booked by GPK for a gig that no one showed up to. I like to imagine that that was the final straw for them ::meev::

    I didn't realise they came back. I was so excited the first time they played in Australia, but I lived too far away and was too young to attend. But, still, the thought of Kozi being in Australia was pretty exciting for my child mind!

    I wonder why people payed that much for it. It's such a high price for a CD 0_o.

    Probably most people are after it for the song by STRIPPED LADY which was what La'cryma Christi originally called themselves. It is, however, garbage XD

    Oh it makes much more sense hahah. I found it odd to think that Pride of mind could have such a following after all these years.
