A Shure SM58 microphone that was once used by punk legend Lux Interior of The Cramps has been returned to its owner. Eric Scealf of the rock group The Unsatisfied offered a reward for the return of the mic when he realized it was missing in early February. Yesterday his plea was answered when the microphone arrived by first-class mail in an anonymous package. Mr. Scealf said "There's a Dallas, TX postmark but the return address is bogus, we had it checked out. There was no note or anything, just my mic wrapped in some paper and one of those Guy Fawkes masks. That's it, nothing else."
The Guy Fawkes mask was popularized by the movie 'V For Vendetta' and most recently adopted by members of the "Occupy" movement. It has also become a symbol for the underground political group known simply as Anonymous. As of yet, no-one has taken credit for the return of the microphone.
Mr Scealf states, "I'd love to find out who sent this back. It's hard to put into words what this means to me, and I'll gladly pay the $500 reward if somebody comes forward with proof that they sent it. If not, I'm just glad I got Lux's microphone back. I feel like King Arthur having Excalibur returned!"
