Has anyone heard this recent MISFITS ep "Friday the 13th" ?

I saw a copy at Sonic Boom. It was too much cash for a EP.

THE LOST BOYS :

During a break in touring in 2000, Graves and Dr. CHUD formed a band called The Lost Boys. They played two shows before the Misfits regrouped to embark on another tour, which was their last tour with this line-up. The first Lost Boys show consisted of Graves on an acoustic guitar and vocals while Dr. CHUD played drums. They played Misfits songs they had written while in the band as well as songs which later came to be songs used for the band Graves which Graves wrote. The second show was the same music played as the first show, only this time the lineup consisted of Graves on vocals and electric guitar (he used Doyle's old Ibanez Iceman which has been used to record such Misfits albums as "Walk Among Us" and "Earth A.D./Wolfsblood" and was given to Graves as a gift upon joining the Misfits back in 1995), Dr. CHUD on drums and J~Sin Trioxin on bass. Later on as an encore set, JV Bastard took the stage and joined the band to play guitar as Graves sang. The four played "classic" Misfits songs from the 1977 to 1983 era of the band.

Edited to add this :

In March 2006, Graves began a tour in support of Damien Echols and the West Memphis Three. Matt Johnson was replaced with Quincy Smash, who has played bass guitar for one of Graves' bands, The Mopes, before the Misfits. To coincide with the 2006 Halloween/Almost Home 2 tour, Graves' second solo effort titled Return to Earth was released on Halloween day of 2006

Very cool! The Damien Echols story is just mindblowing!

We Kill Everything fits that bill for sure, even if it's not particularly early in their career.

Nice!

I didn't see GWAR until the Violence Has Arrived tour, but it was everything I ever expected a GWAR show to be, and more. Brockie kicking a fan in the face, Slymenstra being all hot, a pit so crazy I thought I was gonna die... good times!

Kryst The Conqueror - anyone dig em?

It's the Misfits after Danzig left and during a law suit over the bands name.

Weird that they were christian tho. Didn't know Doyle and Only are into that crap.

Jerry felt that DANZIG and SAMHAIN were satanic, evil and possibly damaging to impressionable youths. :lol:
