The Misfits

Manning Bar

Sydney, AUS

December 12, 2015

 

The Misfits. One of the most iconic punk bands. These days they are fronted by bassist Jerry Only, framed by Jerry Junior and Eric "Chupacabra" Arce on drums.

For this tour, the trio was digging up two of their most seminal albums from the grave, Static Age, which was written in 1978 but not released until 1997, and Earth AD, which is noticeably harder and faster material and according to Glenn D. contained tracks that were originally intended for Samhain's debut.

Other classic songs from The Misfits' catalog were sprinkled in for good measure and the full auditorium ate it up.

The two Jerrys, devilocks and ghoulish make up intact, work the stage and the three microphones that were set up on stage help to penetrate the willing audience from every angle with renditions of their spooky and fantastical horror stories.

Drawn-out legal battles and seemingly unending lineup changes aside: 
You love the songs and the performance of the 2015 incarnation of The Misfits, though very heavy on tones in the low-pitched range, is fun to watch.
