The Misfits were hugely influential in introducing the goth aesthetic to the punk genre. This compilation, and its companion 'Collection II', includes the majority of their studio material from 1977 to the break-up of the original band in 1983. Glenn Danzig, who fronted the group, epitomised the DIY punk ethic: he single-handedly wrote all the songs, founded the fan club (the now legendary "Fiend Club"), made record covers by hand, printed t-shirts and mailed out letters and merchandise info. Between '77 and '83, many Misfits players came and went. The only other permanent member was bassist Jerry Only, who invented The Misfits' famous "devilock" hairstyle. Jerry's brother, the self-titled Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, played guitar from '80-'83. The Misfits were named after the title of Marilyn Monroe's last movie, and adopted as a logo the image of a ghastly skull (nick-named "The Fiend") from 1946 horror movie 'The Crimson Ghost'.

Danzig had the lyrics to match their ghoulish appearance - on this album, 'London Dungeon', 'Night Of The Living Dead' and 'Death Comes Ripping' need no explanation. In the same pop trash vein, 'I Turned Into A Martian' and 'Teenagers From Mars' explore his love of kitsch sci-fi. Musically, Danzig referenced 50's rock 'n roll with instantly memorable guitar hooks, and the dynamism of his singing (which earned him the nick-name "Evil Elvis"). The Misfits played at a frantic pace - any track that made it past 3 minutes was an epic - and their production values showed total disregard for sharp, clear audio. The combination of Danzig's melodic songwriting with the band's vicious, chaotic performance style creates a unique tension that many have tried to imitate since.

If there was a way to buy instant punk rock credibility - youd buy it, wouldnt you??
If the answer to the above is yes, then MIsfits collection Vol.1 is for you. A collection of the essential Misfits tracks from the early part of their career, no one could hope for a better introduction to the band - unarguably one of the most important outfits of the scene to date - or perhaps even the whole punk scene.
Nestling nicely between obscurity and cult, The Misfits "cant play, but hold a killer melody" B movie inspired madness will perhaps never be quite as well exemplified as it here (despite the excellence of their newer material) on tracks such as Hollywood Babylon, Skulls, Teenagers From Mars and the ripping Bullet.
Some of the best songs by one of the best bands around.

We all know what a state the Misfits have become in recent years, and 'The New Misfits' is hopefully a signal that they will finally be laid to rest. But listening to this collection of songs from throughout the original horror-punkers discography, you would have imagined they would never be defeated.
Many of the highlights of the original albums are present here; songs like She, Skulls, Where Eagles Dare, London Dungeon and Die,Die My Darling are reminders as to what the Misfits used to be.
We all hate Glenn Danzig now, and laugh at him whenever we can, but on this collection we can see why he was such an influential and iconic frontman back in the day. He actually has a great singing voice. Musically, the Misfits were not spectacular. It's pretty much run-of-the-mill punk, but that's all it needs to be. That isn't to say that they didn't have their share of cool riffs (I love the opening riff to Vampira). Of course, the production on this CD isn't crystal clear, given that the songs were recorded in the 70s, but it's not overly terrible.
This CD will serve as a perfect introduction to anyone wanting to give the Misfits a try, although it's a pointless purchase if you already own a few of their albums. There isn't anything new - no new songs, and nothing at all in the liner booklet. But again, this is a perfect selection of songs for newcomers.

Great album but unfortunately there are no lyrics, no booklet.... just the plain Vinyl.. nice cover thought. At least you get the mp3 album if you buy the record through Amazon
