PostSubject: the Misfits   Sun Mar 04, 2007 8:44 pm

okay, I've been a fan of these guys since 1983..have their entire discography, have seen them live only twice (it seems a lot of bands are deciding to utterly bypass Minnesota) and am curious.....since there are three different incarnations of the band, Danzig era, Graves era and the current one that I like to call "the Only Experience" due to it being Jerry, Dez Cadena and Marky Ramone.......I ask the question......are there arny fans besides Troggy and myself, what albums ya got, how long ya been a fan, seen em live, what's yer fave era of the 'fits.......have you ever or are you currently a member of the fiend club?

as for me......

what albums ya got:
I ahve the discography on my computer, plus the die, die my darling 12" and the monster mash (fiend club only) 7". And some various Plan 9 releases on cassette.

how long ya been a fan since 1983 which makes it 24 years.
seen em live: only twice, but well worth it.

what's yer
fave era of the 'fits: the most productive of course, the Danzig era. Though the Graves era wasn't bad, but all the in fighting and bad blood between Jerry and the former members (which includes even his brother Paul "doyle") boggles my mind. The recent incarnation, to me, is more or less a novelty act, something I can take or leave.

have you ever or are you currently a member
of the fiend club? I was a fiend form 1997 - 2000.......why so short? I didn't feel like renewing membership.

Wow. That is cool. I haven't kept up with them. Yeah I have been a fan. Fav era is likely the Danzig one. Not obsessed with them. Probably first tuned in around 87 or so....

Danzig era is definitely my favorite. That's the stuff I got turned on to them with and it's the stuff that still gets me off most.

Fave albums:



<- great collection!

Fave tracks:

We Are 138
20 Eyes
Green Hell
London Dungeon
Where Eagles Dare
Angelf**k
Skulls
Hatebreeders
Braineaters
Halloween
When I Turned into a Martian



I've only heard a couple of cuts from the Graves era and it didn't grab me quite so much - though I would be willing to give that stuff another chance at some point. I did think it was cool that they did "Monster Mash" though! It just made total sense for them to do that song. cool beans!



I've never heard any from the Only/Dez/Marky era. Is anything available? Huh?

I currently have all but Legacy of Brutality (basically identical to Static Age except for one or two songs), Earth A.D. and Evilive, but I'm sure I'll pick them up along with the newer stuff at some point in time.

as far as the early stuff, ya just can't go wrong with getting "Walk Among Us". that album boasts, what i feel is the best lineup ever. Glenn, Jerry, Arthur Googy and Doyle.

That's great! Yay! And with the appropriate punctuation, it will be a WINNER! Doom-Metal

Love the Misfits! I like the Danzig and Graves era best. I think Famous Monsters is an excellent album and is one of my favorites. Danzig era Walk Among Us is so far my fav. Ive been a casual fan since the late 80's and I am still picking up stuff from their catalog. The Samhain stuff was pretty good too.

Man, Earth A.D. is a thrash CLASSIC!! That lp rips !!

I love Danzig era MISFITS, and I'll take them over the RAMONES
anyday. I get into a huge fight about this with my friend who loves the
RAMONES. I just think the MISFITS were way more rockin' ..

I have KRYST THE CONQUEROR ! I got it on cd through the
DOYLE fan club back in the day.. Laughing it's actually really cool !!

I saw the latest incarnation of the MISFITS maybe a year ago??
With Dez playing guitar, Jerry Only on bass and Robo on drums. It was
alright. I went because my friends band (ROCK CITY MORGUE was opening up.
I told Jerry, hey "I love KRYST THE CONQUEROR and
he was like .. "You like that, eh??"

It was cool to see DEZ CADENA play guitar live !! Of course, I wish
I would have seen him in BLACK FLAG, but that was just a little before
my time..

yup and if you do a search for the name "doyle wolfgang von frankenstein" on yube you can even watch one of the live shows.

Doyle and Jerry had a falling out after Jerry kicked Mikey Graves out of the band in 2001, since then it's been just Jerry as the misfits. Doyle has a new band called Gorgeous Frankenstein but they have yet to release anything.

Yeah, I have a burn of the EP also.  As far as I know, that's all that was ever made available.

Wow, and Jerry and Doyle are brothers, aren't they?  Doyle playing with Glenn again musta chaffed Jerry's hide pretty good, I would think. GEEN!

there's a lot of bad blood between them now. Kinda how there is between Jerry and Glenn. then again, Jerry has a strict no drugs, no drinking policy and Mikey is a pot smoking supporter so (like so many metal and punkers seem to encourage these days), I can understand why Jerry gave him the boot after catching him sparking up a doob with one of the roadies.

interesting side note about the Kryst demo.....

the last track on this 5 song ep, the solo in spellbound was later used, note for note, in the Misfits song Descending Angel which can be found on the album Famous Monsters.

Yeah, I would have liked to have seen the Danzig/Doyle thing, but I don't
think it was an extensive tour, If I'm not mistaken. I think it was only a handful of shows ??

What I was really peeved about was missing the SAMHAIN reunion !!
I guess they reformed and actually opened up on a DANZIG tour.
So Glenn was doing two sets..

you are correct sir, Samhain did do some reunion shows, but the original Samhain guitarists were not present, Todd Youth who was playing for Danzig at the time, took over guitar duties in Samhain and to me, that no longer made it a reunion tour but a separate incarnation of the band that just played all the old songs.
