Michale Graves at Crypticon

posted by MP Johnson

Here’s a strange phenom: There are people out there who would be more psyched about a reunion of Graves-era Misfits than Danzig-era Misfits.

Who are these crazy people? They’re the ones who were kids when American Psycho and Famous Monsters came out, the ones who weren’t old enough to be jaded by the “It’s not the Misfits without Danzig” original lineup bullshit that had me ignoring the reformed Misfits for a long time, the ones who caught the band on tour with Gwar and realized they were watching something fucking awesome and didn’t give a fuck about Ol’ Glenny. Smart kids, listening to music with their ears and their hearts instead of their nerd-brains.

Fact: “Dig Up Her Bones” is one of many amazing Misfits songs. Why break it down into new vs. old? Fact: Michale Graves will be at the Crypticon, acoustic guitar in hand, ready to play his heart out whether the room is full or only two people trickle in. Fact: He’s now the leader of Marky Ramone’s band. He might throw some Ramones tunes into the set, but don’t expect any Danzig-era Misfits.
