From hell they came... 30 years ago in a small town in New Jersey called Lodi. It was there, at the dawn of the punk movement in April 1977, that the Misfits were born. Taking for their name the title of Marilyn Monroe's final movie, they set out to make an impression.
With timeless vocal melodies bred from 1950's rock and roll. Immortalizing black and white B horror films in their music, the Misfits developed a ghoulish and totally unique persona; from their hand made musical weapons to the stiletto hairstyle they called the "devil lock." It was the early days of punk and they had created a rebellion all their own.
The Misfits have endured hardcore's heyday as punk rock's monster squad, a band whose cult following — a pseudo-secret coven known as the Fiend Club — inspired them to continue to write, record and tour. Misfits Meet the Nutley Brass: Fiend Club Lounge is a tribute album to the horror punk band the Misfits, recorded by the Nutley Brass and first released in 2005 by Misfits Records. It features cover versions of Misfits songs from the band's early era, 1977 to 1983, performed in an instrumental retro-brass "lounge" or "space age pop" style.
"What perverse and unknowable intent the gods of loungecore music decided to spawn Fiend Club Lounge? At first, I suspected that it was a clever attempt on the life of yours truly — due to the fact that after popping Fiend Club Lounge into the ol’ disc player in my car, I came within five feet of hitting a tree, after hearing the first 20 seconds of “Last Caress." For Misfits 'completists,' this recording is a must-have. If there is a Misfits fiend in your life, these lounge lizard interpretations will bring joy and uncontrollable laughter to their life." — antiMusic.com
