CD of the Month (September): Fiend Club Lounge by Misfits Meet The Nutley Brass

This is a must have disc for any Misfits fan. The Nutley Brass have made a brilliant album comprised of their own renditions of 11 classic Misfit tunes. The only complaint is it's way too short at only 21 minutes of playing time. But what a truly inspired 21 minutes it is! It really is surprising to see how layered and complex these old punk rock songs are. Skulls and Teenagers From Mars are true masterpieces that really stand out. This is just a fun disc to listen to, singing the ghoulish lyrics set to horns and piano. I'm telling you, this is a great novelty record, perfect to take the seriousness out of these terrible times we live in, if only for 21 minutes! ***** out of *****.
