A visitor made some touch ups of the sleeve to make the orange glow and sent to me which made me redo the touch up myself. Thanks Sacha!
The nice orange color of the sleeve doesn’t come through cause my scanner is a bit sucky. So another Misfit record on the blog! Amazing ain’t it? This one is almost as great as Horror Business that was posted in September last year but what holds this back is the extremely muddy production. But still…the production also makes it stand out as one of a kind and truly unique item among early punk records. Two amazing tracks found in Night… and Where Eagles… and one one total filler crap track in Rat Fink.
Best lyrical part:
“An omelet of disease awaits your noontime meal
Her mouth of germicide seducing all your glands”
Label: Plan 9
Night Of The Living Dead.mp3
Where Eagles Dare.mp3
Obscure, but OK. A bit generic, the singer is a total rip off as he sounds pretty much exactly like the guy from Danzig!
Fuck! You’re right. Sounds very much like the singer from Danzig. Holy shit!
By now you must have realized your opinion on Rat Fink is 100 % false.
Ehh no? Rat Stink.
You’ll get it. One day you will.
What’s wrong with “Rat Fink”? It’s pretty much your typical Misfits raw cut with 50’s rock’n’roll influence and brainless lyrics. Maybe that’s the problem… :) Thanks for taking the time, Pete. It’s always nice to hear the original campfire crackling Misfits without remastering, remixing and whatnot.
The only wrong with Rat Stink is that it stinks :). Boring rock n roll song that’ve been done 100 times before I think.
1) It’s not brainless lyrics, it’s horror movie influenced lyrics. It’s like a movie like Frankenstein or Dracula has brainless dialogues. Once again your opinion is ridiculous! Maybe you have the need to comment on every post but you shouldn’t. Why idiots expect every 80’s bands to sing to same about Reagan. It’s repetitive and annoying.
2) Rat Fink is not a 50’s influenced song, it’s a 50’s song! It’s an Allan
Thanks for the info! It’s a 50s song. My bad. Still stinks :). Who’ve talked about the lyrics here? They rule.
I’m 46 by the way. But still a kid I guess?
Thanks for the infos, brainless coward… ;-)
You guys can’t serious. Look at the date this album was produced and then say its been 100 times before. If you don’t know what you’re talking about or won’t research for yourself, keep you ignorant comments to yourself. The Misfits were one of a kind when the came out, yes it’s very campy and cheesy, but they are still a favorite of mine. And for you two dipshits with the Danzig comments, Glenn Danzig was the singer of the Misfits. Danzig didn’t take shape until ’86 or ’87. And Samhain was in the middle.
^^HA HA Rat Fink=Rat Stinks.
And the two dipshits are the two guys who run this blog by the way :).
There’s nothing cheesy about the Misfits. They had their own thing going on which is respectable and punk. And Nobody were more D.I.Y. than the Misfits.
Nobody where more DIY than Misfits :D? Sir, you have to learn more about early punk rock I guess ha ha. Who’ve talked about Misfits being cheezy? They where totally unique in the beginning which is a good thing in my book.
Punker than a revisionist Italian kid!
But less punk than a semi-teutonic loser… ;-)
You know what. I am hereby offcicially, publicly retreating and joining Team Ratfink Stinks. Just to avoid being connected with The Axis of Serious Misfits Digging True DIY Punk 4 Ever Guys in any way.
no link to enlarge the fiend club insert?
Ups! Fixed. Thanks for letting me know.
After all these years I still dig The Misfits all the way up to, but not really including, the Walk Among Us LP. All of the Misfits singles between ’78 and ’81 have aged very well though I think over the years. I can even find some redeeming qualities in the much-maligned Cough Cool single. The Night of the Living Dead EP is the rawest sounding and probably helped get Bobby Steele kicked out the band, as I assume Danzig hated how the record sounded once it was pressed up and released. Back in 1989 on a college radio station I remember listening to an interview with Bobby Steele where he talked about how the band talked so much shit about him after he was kicked out. Typical Danzig, eh. Danzig also talked shit in Touch and Go one time after how bad the Victims were and he should have never released their “Annette” EP. Ever seen the “Henry & Glenn Forever” zine? Pretty funny stuff that totally pokes fun at Danzig (and Rollins).
I gotta idea for a Jersey Boys remake.
I stumbled upon this web page tonight and boy am I glad I found it! All these Mistfit records you uploaded are in the best quality I’ve ever heard. I re downloaded all of them to add to my collection. Thanks so much for posting them and please if you get more post those as well.
