Misfits - Wasp Queens (2017)

‹‹ Back to Listing



Classic live professionally recorded show from the "Walk Among Us" tour 1982 at Irving Plaza (NYC).

Pioneers of the late 1970s US punk-rock scene, the Misfits classic line-up, featuring Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only, lasted just 6 years - during which time they released two albums (Static Age was recorded in 1978 but not released until 1997), three EPs and six singles - although during this tenure they became the most influential American punks to emerge during the first wave. Drawing on elements of rockabilly and heavy metal as well as horror themes, Misfits helped bridge the transition from late '70s Ramones-esque punk to the more aggressive hardcore sound of the early '80s. They were also well-known for their shocking imagery and stage presence, which led to their founding of the "horror punk" genre.

In support of their Walk Among Us album, the Misfits embarked on a 37-date tour of the United States, during which the group performed three shows at New York's Irving Plaza, and it is their performance from the 27th March 1982 that features on this CD. Broadcast live over FM radio and featuring a host of tracks from across their career, plus numbers that would later appear on Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood in 1983, this seminal band deliver a blistering set full of the style of dark passion and energy that singled out the Misfits from so many second rate punk bands around the USA at a similar time
