Fanatics! Henry Rollins' KCRW Show Tomorrow Night: The Misfits' Rare Album 12 Hits From Hell
KCRW Broadcast #138 for Saturday, October 29, 2011
Fanatics! Tonight is our last Damned album spin. It's a great one. Strawberries was the band's fifth album and the last one with Captain Sensible for a long time.
Before we get into all that, we have a healthy mix of songs as well as another full album we are going to listen to. Our first seven tracks are good Halloween fare, for better or for worse and then we get into one serious deal, the Misfits' 12 Hits From Hell album.
From what I read, the album got as close as the promo copy phase and then the band pulled it, immediately making it a rarity. I got my copy a long time ago and feel very lucky to have done so because it's a great one. Tonight, we listen to it all the way through.
