MISFITS: Rare 1995 Demo Recordings Posted Online

March 31, 2008

Veteran punk drummer Joel Gausten (PIGFACE, THE UNDEAD, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN) has posted two rare MISFITS rehearsal demos for the tracks "Astro Zombies" and "London Dungeon" at this location. Recorded in February 1995 at the MISFITS' rehearsal compound in New Jersey, the demos feature Jerry Only on bass, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein on guitar, Eric Weiss on vocals and Gausten on drums. The songs were part of an 11-song recording engineered by future MISFITS drummer Dr. Chud.

These tracks were completed several months prior to Michale Graves becoming the band's official singer. At the time of the recording, Gausten had been serving as one of the band's fill-in rehearsal drummers while the band was auditioning vocalists.

Gausten detailed his experiences with the MISFITS in his book "Tales of Horror: The History of The Misfits & The Undead", available for purchase at this location.
