It Came From Halloween – The Misfits

Posted in Lost Classics! with tags , , , , , , , on October 27, 2011 by 30daysout

Shouldn’t let a Halloween go by without paying tribute to the Misfits.  The creators of horror punk movement, the Misfits came out of the swamps of New Jersey in 1977 and are still goin’ strong, more or less.  Less singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig, who wrote many of their early songs; less Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and Michale Graves, who played on the Misfits’ major-label album American Psycho; and without Marky Ramone, who played drums for the Misfits for a while.

The Misfits today are led by bassist/singer Jerry Only, immediately identifiable by his “devillock” hairstyle, guitarist Dez Cadena and drummer Robo (both formerly of punk titans Black Flag).  We’re gonna go see the Misfits in November when they roll through Houston, you should see them too when they come to your town.
