The Misfits

(Redirected from Misfits)
For the movie, see The Misfits (movie). A fictional band called The Misfits appears in the animated series Jem.

The Misfits were a punk rock band formed in 1977 in the town of Lodi, New Jersey, and led by singer Glenn Danzig (nč Anzalone).

The band's name is from The Misfits, Marilyn Monroe's last movie. The early lyrical and graphical focus was on retro (1930s-'50s) science fiction, horror films, and B-movies.

The early Misfits were often quite melodic: Danzig's voice was extremely supple, with a style rooted in Italian tenors such as Mario Lanza, and in 1950's doo wop; and with songwriting including strong pop hooks and sing-along choruses -- but grafted onto a very loud, and often cruddy-sounding punk band. (The early Misfits were, in both good and bad ways, a notably aggressive and untrained ensemble.)

By the original band's last album, Earth A.D., they had become a hardcore punk band, with Danzig's standout vocal tone floating over a torrent of thrashing guitar, bass, and drums, courtesy of Jerry, brother Doyle, and pal Robo. (Metallica covered two Misfits songs from this era, "Green Hell" and "Die Die My Darling," although some purists regard the cover version as weak and mechanical. Another Metallica cover, "Last Caress," is from the Misfits' aborted "Static Age" album session, from '78.)

"Last Caress" was a very rare track for years, and is now commonly regarded as the prototypical early-Misfits song, with blaring instruments and Danzig's melodic vocals putting the rendition somewhere on the crude median between Frank Sinatra and the Sex Pistols. The track is quite noteworthy, with aggressively sloppy punk instrumentation and a soaring, Italian-tenor vocal line. However, many other early songs are just as interesting, with the recently-released "Static Age" LP (of '78 studio sessions) filling all such accounts.

Members came and went, with bassist and co-founder Jerry Only (nč Caiafa) holding down the fort in terms of other instrumental players.

The original Misfits broke up in 1983.

The original Misfits released several 7" singles, in DIY limited-edition, that have long been considered prime collectors' items.

The band often wore ghoulish makeup when performing, and bassist Jerry Only invented a hairstyle called the devilock which is still worn by fans today.

The band plays and records today as a Jerry Only project, with rotating members.

The original Misfits' latter-day (and canonical) logo, a distinctive skull, is from a 1940s serial, the Crimson Ghost. Their later characteristic font consists of letters taken from the logo of the magazine "Famous Monsters of Filmland".

History

The earliest lineup was a trio, with Danzig singing and playing electric piano. This version didn't last long, recording one single and playing only a few gigs before the band ditched the piano (and the original drummer) and recruited a guitarist.

Many early members came and went, in shifting combination; Danzig and Only being constants.

During their original career, the Misfits were exemplary practitioners of the DIY ethic: The band (especially Danzig) booked their own shows, assembled and sold their own records, and ran their own fan club, the Fiend Club.

Like many punk bands of that time, the Misfits had brushes with the law. Danzig and guitarist Bobby Steele were jailed in the London district of Brixton for "threatening behavior" on December 2nd, 1979. Glenn's jail time would become the inspiration for the song "London Dungeon". On October 17, 1982, the band was arrested in New Orleans on the charges of grave-robbing while in search of the burial place of voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. The Misfits denied the charges, and a witness reportedly attested that they had not even entered the cemetery gates. The band bailed themselves out of jail and skipped court to drive to their next performance in Florida.

On October 29, 1983 (see 1983 in music), Glenn Danzig broke up the band to dedicate his full attention to a new group, Samhain. Samhain later metamorphosed into Danzig.

Legal Battle

Meanwhile, Jerry Only and his brother, Misfits guitarist Doyle, played in a heavy metal band called Kryst The Conqueror with Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist Jeff Scott Soto until Only won the performing and recording rights to the Misfits in a legal battle.

In addition to the rights to the Misfits name and image, Only sought songwriting credits on much of the Misfits early material. He concedes that Danzig wrote nearly all the lyrics and much of the music, but contended that he and Doyle "wrote 25% or maybe 30% of the music," [1] (http://www.citizinemag.com/music/music-0309_jerryonly.htm) and deserved compensation.

Only gained the rights to the Misfits name and Image, and reformed the band in 1995 (1995 in music) with Doyle and newcomers Michale Graves on vocals and Dr. Chud of Sardonica on drums. The new incarnation of the Misfits released two full-length albums, American Psycho and Famous Monsters as well as a collection of rare and unreleased late Misfits tracks, until Michale Graves and Dr. Chud left the band on October 25, 2000 at a performance at the House of Blues in Orlando. Doyle took an indefinite hiatus from performing, Jerry took over lead vocals in addition to his bass duties, and recruited punk veterans Dez Cadena of Black Flag, and Marky Ramone of The Ramones to undertake a 25th Anniversary Tour.

Freed from the Misfits' contractual obligations to Universal's Geffen and Roadrunner imprints, Only and Misfits confidant John Cafiero formed Misfits Records and launched their new label with two releases, the American debut of their Japanese imitators Balzac, and a new Misfits album featuring the band's retakes on ten 50's rock classics, Project 1950. The album featured not only the punk rock all-star Misfits lineup of Only, Cadena and Ramone, but prominent appearances from 60's pop chanteuse Ronnie Spector and Blondie keyboardist Jimmy Destri.

Meanwhile Michale Graves and Dr. Chud had formed their own band, Graves, which released a single album before breaking up. As of 2004, Michale Graves currently sings in Gotham Road and is one of the forces behind www.conservativepunk.org [2] (http://www.conserativepunk.org), while Dr. Chud is pursuing a solo career.

Legacy

The influence The Misfits have had on punk rock, and rock music in general, sometimes seems disproportionate to the publicity and critical attention they have received. Myriad bands have imitated The Misfits' style, such as Blitzkid, and these bands have become known as horror punk. Psychobilly has various similarities with horror punk. A number of bands have recently surfaced which, although in some cases less obviously horror punk, are still strongly visibly and audibly influenced by The Misfits. These include, most notably, bands such as AFI, Tiger Army, Alkaline Trio and the Murderdolls. Many musical groups whose resemblance to The Misfits seems far removed also cite The Misfits as crucial influences, such as Metallica and Cradle of Filth.

The Misfits appeared as characters or in cameos in the following movies. As of 2005, Nilsson's final album, tentatively titled Papa's Got a Brown New Robe, has never been released. Many musical groups whose resemblance to The Misfits seems far removed also cite The Misfits as crucial influences, such as Metallica and Cradle of Filth. A little over a month later, the 2-CD anthology he worked on with RCA Victor, Personal Best, was released. These include, most notably, bands such as AFI, Tiger Army, Alkaline Trio and the Murderdolls. He completed the vocal tracks for the album on 15 January 1994, and then died that night of heart failure. A number of bands have recently surfaced which, although in some cases less obviously horror punk, are still strongly visibly and audibly influenced by The Misfits. After surviving that, he began pressing his old label, RCA Victor, to release a boxed-set retrospective of his career, and also started recording again, attempting to complete one final album.

Psychobilly has various similarities with horror punk. His health was also deteriorating, and in 1993, he suffered a massive heart attack. Myriad bands have imitated The Misfits' style, such as Blitzkid, and these bands have become known as horror punk. Nilsson found himself in a dire financial situation when his trusted financial adviser embezzled all the money he had ever made as a recording artist. The influence The Misfits have had on punk rock, and rock music in general, sometimes seems disproportionate to the publicity and critical attention they have received. He joined the Coalition to Stop Handgun Violence and begain making public appearances solely to raise money for their cause. Chud is pursuing a solo career. Nilsson was profoundly affected by the murder of John Lennon in December 1980.

As of 2004, Michale Graves currently sings in Gotham Road and is one of the forces behind www.conservativepunk.org [2] (http://www.conserativepunk.org), while Dr. However, Nilsson increasingly began referring to himself as as a "retired musician". Chud had formed their own band, Graves, which released a single album before breaking up. He wrote all the songs for Robert Altman's movie-musical Popeye (1980), and recorded one more album, Flash Harry, which was released in the UK but not in the USA. Meanwhile Michale Graves and Dr. He wrote a musical play, Zapata, with Perry Botkin, Jr., which got as far as being performed in Connecticut but never moved to Broadway. The album featured not only the punk rock all-star Misfits lineup of Only, Cadena and Ramone, but prominent appearances from 60's pop chanteuse Ronnie Spector and Blondie keyboardist Jimmy Destri. Nilsson's musical work after leaving RCA Victor was sporadic.

Freed from the Misfits' contractual obligations to Universal's Geffen and Roadrunner imprints, Only and Misfits confidant John Cafiero formed Misfits Records and launched their new label with two releases, the American debut of their Japanese imitators Balzac, and a new Misfits album featuring the band's retakes on ten 50's rock classics, Project 1950. This, combined with RCA Victor releasing a Nilsson Greatest Hits collection without consulting him, prompted Nilsson to leave the label. Doyle took an indefinite hiatus from performing, Jerry took over lead vocals in addition to his bass duties, and recruited punk veterans Dez Cadena of Black Flag, and Marky Ramone of The Ramones to undertake a 25th Anniversary Tour. However, the death of Elvis Presley caused RCA Victor to ignore everything except meeting demand for Presley's back catalog, and the promised marketing push never happened. Chud left the band on October 25, 2000 at a performance at the House of Blues in Orlando. RCA Victor seemed to agree, and promised Nilsson a substantial marketing campaign for the album. The new incarnation of the Misfits released two full-length albums, American Psycho and Famous Monsters as well as a collection of rare and unreleased late Misfits tracks, until Michale Graves and Dr. With his voice strong again, and his songs exploring musical territory reminiscent of Harry or The Point!, Nilsson had every right to expect Knnillssonn to be a comeback album.

Chud of Sardonica on drums. Finally, Nilsson recorded what he later considered to be his favorite album, 1977's Knnillssonn. Only gained the rights to the Misfits name and Image, and reformed the band in 1995 (1995 in music) with Doyle and newcomers Michale Graves on vocals and Dr. Nilsson's voice had mostly recovered by his next release, Duit on Mon Dei (1975), but neither it nor its follow-ups, Sandman and ...That's the Way It Is (both 1976) met with chart success. He concedes that Danzig wrote nearly all the lyrics and much of the music, but contended that he and Doyle "wrote 25% or maybe 30% of the music," [1] (http://www.citizinemag.com/music/music-0309_jerryonly.htm) and deserved compensation. The resulting album, Pussy Cats, was a shock for listeners who knew Nilsson as one of the best singers of his generation. In addition to the rights to the Misfits name and image, Only sought songwriting credits on much of the Misfits early material. To make matters worse, Nilsson ruptured a vocal cord during the sessions for this album, but hid the fact due to fear that Lennon would call a halt to the production.

Meanwhile, Jerry Only and his brother, Misfits guitarist Doyle, played in a heavy metal band called Kryst The Conqueror with Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist Jeff Scott Soto until Only won the performing and recording rights to the Misfits in a legal battle. In a widely publicized incident, they were ejected from the Troubadour in West Hollywood for drunken heckling of the Smothers Brothers. Samhain later metamorphosed into Danzig. However, their time together in California became known much more for heavy drinking and drug use than it did for musical collaboration. On October 29, 1983 (see 1983 in music), Glenn Danzig broke up the band to dedicate his full attention to a new group, Samhain. Lennon was intent upon producing Nilsson's next album, much to Nilsson's delight. The band bailed themselves out of jail and skipped court to drive to their next performance in Florida. 1974 found Nilsson back in California, and when John Lennon moved there during his separation from Yoko Ono, the two musicians rekindled their earlier friendship.

On October 17, 1982, the band was arrested in New Orleans on the charges of grave-robbing while in search of the burial place of voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. The Misfits denied the charges, and a witness reportedly attested that they had not even entered the cemetery gates. (Nilsson fans still await this film's release in some home video format.). Glenn's jail time would become the inspiration for the song "London Dungeon". The session was filmed, and was broadcast as a television special by the BBC in the UK. Danzig and guitarist Bobby Steele were jailed in the London district of Brixton for "threatening behavior" on December 2nd, 1979. While in hindsight, the sessions showcased an extremely talented singer in one of his best performances, this was not the sort of thing that was going to burn up the charts in the 1970s. Like many punk bands of that time, the Misfits had brushes with the law. Performing a selection of pop standards by the likes of Irving Berlin and Kalmar & Ruby, Nilsson sang in front of an orchestra arranged and conducted by veteran Gordon Jenkins in sessions produced by his constant supporter Derek Taylor.

During their original career, the Misfits were exemplary practitioners of the DIY ethic: The band (especially Danzig) booked their own shows, assembled and sold their own records, and ran their own fan club, the Fiend Club. This disregard for commercialism in favor of artistic satisfaction showed itself in Nilsson's next release, A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night (1973). Many early members came and went, in shifting combination; Danzig and Only being constants. Still, the album did well, and the single "Spaceman" was a Top 40 hit. This version didn't last long, recording one single and playing only a few gigs before the band ditched the piano (and the original drummer) and recruited a guitarist. With lyrics like "I sang my balls off for you, baby", "Roll the world over / And give her a kiss and a feel", and the notorious "You're breaking my heart / You're tearing it apart / So f--k you", Nilsson had travelled far afield from his earlier work. The earliest lineup was a trio, with Danzig singing and playing electric piano. Besides the problem of competing with himself, Nilsson's decision to give free rein to his bawdiness and bluntness on this release alienated some of his earlier, more conservative fan base.

Their later characteristic font consists of letters taken from the logo of the magazine "Famous Monsters of Filmland". Nilsson followed quickly with Son of Schmilsson (1972), released while its predecessor was still on the charts. The original Misfits' latter-day (and canonical) logo, a distinctive skull, is from a 1940s serial, the Crimson Ghost. The third, "Jump Into the Fire", was raucous, screaming rock and roll, including a drum solo by Derek and the Dominos' Jim Gordon and a bass detuning by Herbie Flowers. The band plays and records today as a Jerry Only project, with rotating members. The second single was "Coconut", a novelty calypso number. The band often wore ghoulish makeup when performing, and bassist Jerry Only invented a hairstyle called the devilock which is still worn by fans today. The first was a cover of Badfinger's song, "Without You", featuring a highly emotional arrangement and soaring vocals to match, a performance that was rewarded with Nilsson's second Grammy Award.

The original Misfits released several 7" singles, in DIY limited-edition, that have long been considered prime collectors' items. Nilsson Schmilsson yielded three hit singles that could not be more stylistically different from each other. The original Misfits broke up in 1983. Later that year, Nilsson went to England with producer Richard Perry to record what became the most successful album of his career. Members came and went, with bassist and co-founder Jerry Only (nč Caiafa) holding down the fort in terms of other instrumental players. Nilsson's album of songs from The Point! was well-received, and spawned a hit single, "Me and My Arrow". However, many other early songs are just as interesting, with the recently-released "Static Age" LP (of '78 studio sessions) filling all such accounts. Nilsson's next project was an animated film, The Point!, created with animation director Fred Wolf, and broadcast on ABC television in 1971.

The track is quite noteworthy, with aggressively sloppy punk instrumentation and a soaring, Italian-tenor vocal line. The resuit, Nilsson Sings Newman (1970), was commercially disappointing but was named Record of the Year by Stereo Review magazine, and provided momemtum to Newman's career. "Last Caress" was a very rare track for years, and is now commonly regarded as the prototypical early-Misfits song, with blaring instruments and Danzig's melodic vocals putting the rendition somewhere on the crude median between Frank Sinatra and the Sex Pistols. Nilsson was so impressed with Newman's talent that he devoted his entire next album to Newman compositions, with Newman himself playing piano behind Nilsson's multi-tracked vocals. Another Metallica cover, "Last Caress," is from the Misfits' aborted "Static Age" album session, from '78.). While the album still presented Nilsson as primarily a songwriter, his astute choice of cover material included, this time, a song by a little-known composer named Randy Newman. (Metallica covered two Misfits songs from this era, "Green Hell" and "Die Die My Darling," although some purists regard the cover version as weak and mechanical. Nilsson's next album, Harry (1969), was his first to hit the charts, and also provided a Top 40 single with "I Guess the Lord Must Be in New York City".

By the original band's last album, Earth A.D., they had become a hardcore punk band, with Danzig's standout vocal tone floating over a torrent of thrashing guitar, bass, and drums, courtesy of Jerry, brother Doyle, and pal Robo. The result, "Best Friend", was very popular, but Nilsson never released the song on record. (The early Misfits were, in both good and bad ways, a notably aggressive and untrained ensemble.). Nilsson was also commissioned at this time to write and perform the theme song for the ABC television series The Courtship of Eddie's Father. The early Misfits were often quite melodic: Danzig's voice was extremely supple, with a style rooted in Italian tenors such as Mario Lanza, and in 1950's doo wop; and with songwriting including strong pop hooks and sing-along choruses -- but grafted onto a very loud, and often cruddy-sounding punk band. Aerial Ballet also contained Nilsson's version of his own composition, "One", which was later taken to the top of the charts by Three Dog Night. The early lyrical and graphical focus was on retro (1930s-'50s) science fiction, horror films, and B-movies. A minor hit at the time of release, the song would become extremely popular a year later when it was featured in the film Midnight Cowboy, and would earn Nilsson his first Grammy Award.

The band's name is from The Misfits, Marilyn Monroe's last movie. Pandemonium Shadow Show was followed in 1968 by Aerial Ballet, an album that included Nilsson's rendition of Fred Neil's song "Everybody's Talkin'". The Misfits were a punk rock band formed in 1977 in the town of Lodi, New Jersey, and led by singer Glenn Danzig (nč Anzalone). He replied, "Nilsson". Campfire Stories (2001), as The Misfits. Paul was then asked to name his favorite American group. Big Money Hustlas (2000), as Misfits 1-4 (individually credited). He replied, "Nilsson".

Bruiser (2000), uncredited. When John Lennon and Paul McCartney held a press conference in 1968 to announce the formation of Apple Corps, John was asked to name his favorite American artist. Animal Room (1995), as The Misfits. Some of the albums from Derek Taylor's box eventually ended up with the Beatles themselves, who quickly became Nilsson fans. This may have been helped by the track "You Can't Do That", in which Nilsson covered one Beatles song but added 22 others in the multi-tracked background vocals. Project 1950 (2003) - album. With a major-label release, and continued songwriting success (The Monkees had a hit with Nilsson's "Cuddly Toy"), Nilsson finally felt secure enough in the music business to quit his job with the bank. Cuts From The Crypt (1999) - album. One such insider was Beatles press officer Derek Taylor, who bought an entire box of copies of the album to share this new sound with others.

Monster Mash (1999) - single. Music industry insiders were impressed both with the songwriting, and with Nilsson's pure-toned, multi-octave vocals. Famous Monsters (1999) - album. Nilsson signed with RCA Victor in 1967 and released an album, Pandemonium Shadow Show, which was a critical (if not commercial) success. Evillive II (1998) - live fan club album. (Despite this growing success, Nilsson was still working the night shift at the bank.). Dig Up Her Bones (1997) - single. His recording contract was picked up by Tower Records, who did nothing with it, but his songs were now being recorded by Glen Campbell, Fred Astaire, The Yardbirds, and many other artists.

American Psycho (1997) - album. He also established a relationship with songwriter and publisher Perry Botkin, Jr., who began to find a market for Nilsson's songs. 12 Hits From Hell (2001) - album (promo only, unreleased). In 1964, Nilsson worked with Phil Spector, writing three songs with him. Static Age (1997) - album. Another recording, "Donna, I Understand", convinced Mercury Records to offer Nilsson a contract, and release recordings by him under the name Johnny Niles. Collection II (1995) - album. One, "Baa Baa Blackseep", was released under the pseudonym Bo Pete to some small local airplay.

Evilive (1987) - live album. (Little Richard, upon hearing Nilsson sing, reportedly remarked, "My! You sing good for a white boy!") Marascalco also financed some independent singles by Nilsson. Collection I (1986) - album. In 1963, Nilsson began to have some early success as a songwriter, working with John Marascalco on a song for Little Richard. Legacy Of Brutality (1985) - album. Nilsson replied that he had already been paid -- five dollars a track.). Earth A.D. (1984) - album. (Years later, when Nilsson became famous, Turner decided to release these early recordings, and contacted Nilsson to work out a fair payment.

Die, Die My Darling (1984) - single. Turner paid Nilsson five dollars for each track they recorded. Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood (1983) - album. Uncle John's singing lessons, along with Nilsson's natural talent, surely helped when he got a job singing demos for songwriter Scott Turner in 1960. Evilive (1982) - live fan club EP. His job with the bank was on the night shift, so Nilsson spent his days infiltrating Los Angeles music business offices, making friends and developing connections. Walk Among Us (1982) - album. He had taken early stabs at performing while he was working at the Paramount, forming a vocal duo with his friend Jerry Smith and singing close harmonies in the style of the Everly Brothers.

Halloween (1981) - single. As early as 1958, Nilsson was hooked on the new wave of music, especially rhythm and blues artists like Ray Charles. Who Killed Marilyn? (1981) - single (though often credited as a Misfits release, this was issued as a Glenn Danzig solo release). He did so well, in fact, that the bank kept him on even after discovering the lie about his education. 3 Hits From Hell (1981) - EP. (He only made it through 9th grade.) He turned out to have an aptitude for computers, which were just starting to be employed by banks at the time. Beware (1980) - EP. When the Paramount closed (circa 1960), Nilsson applied for a job at a bank, falsely stating he was a high school graduate on his application.

Night of the Living Dead (1979) - single. Due to the poor financial situation of his family, Nilsson worked from an early age, including a job at the Paramount Theater in Los Angeles. Horror Business (1979) - EP. One relative who turned out to be an important influence on him was his Uncle John, a mechanic in San Bernadino, California, who taught him to sing properly. Bullet (1978) - EP. Harry grew up with his mother Bette Nilsson and his younger half-sister, periodically moving to California or back to New York, and living with a procession of relatives and stepfathers. Cough/Cool (1977) - single. An autobiographical reference to this is found in the opening to Nilsson's song "1941":.

His father, Harry Edward Nilsson, Jr., abandoned the family three years later. Nilsson was born in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York in 1941. His most well-known recordings are "Without You" and "Everybody's Talkin'". Despite some spectacular successes, including two Grammy Awards, Nilsson's tendency to make broad stylistic jumps from one record to the next and his iconoclastic decisions kept him from capitalizing on those successes.

For most of his recordings, he did not use his first name, and was credited only as Nilsson. Harry Edward Nilsson III (June 15, 1941 - January 15, 1994) was an American songwriter, singer, pianist and guitarist, most popular during the 1960s and 1970s.
