When are the Misfits not the Misfits? Well, legally speaking, the Misfits are the Misfits as long as founder member and bassist Jerry Only is performing in the band. After all, he and Glenn Danzig fought legal battles over this stuff years ago. That’s why the band that have just finished touring the UK bears very little resemblance to any of the classic line-ups of the band that have come over to these shoes before. They don’t even have Michael Graves as a vocalist anymore.
Never mind that though – our man Gary Wolstenholme made the trip over to Leeds to snap Jerry Only and his hired ghouls when they played the Academy there on their recent jaunt. He also got some shots of Jon Robb’s current punk band, Goldblade, which he does when he’s not penning open letters to famous people over on his website, Louder Than War.
The Misfits currently have a live album doing the round – DEA.D ALIVE – so if you missed “them” on this tour, at least you can buy yourself a copy of that as consolation.
