Album Review

Either a hilarious spoof or an overextended stab at humor, there is little denying the cleverness of this incredibly developed satire of horror-punkers the Misfits. Based on the premise that the Goblins discovered long-lost sheet music in a secret compartment hidden in one of the Misfits' famed coffin stage props, then spent 13 months to record these 11 tracks (that would be a month for every minute of recorded music incidentally), the punch line is perfectly set up for songs only slightly more crude than the Misfits' originals. So, tales of ghouls cruising in Range Rovers with blood hangovers, homicidal masseuses, and a tribute to assassinated President William McKinley follow with detailed liner notes from supposed ethnomusicologist Dr. Yuri Strier. Being straight imitations of the Misfits' primitive punk pounding, the songs really aren't exceptional for anything but the deadpan delivery of decidedly silly songs like "4 Food Groups" ("flesh/lesh/lesh/and brains!"), "Necklace of Brains," and "Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein." Of course, it helps a great deal to have at least a basic knowledge of the Misfits' cult to understand the send-up of Glenn Danzig's obsessive weightlifting in "Getting Ripped," as it's never really clear whether the Goblins are delivering a bizarre tribute to their heroes or simply mockingly making light of them. As considerable discussion has been invested in the topic of whether the Misfits themselves should be taken seriously, a parody of them almost approaches the surreal. Either way, those looking for 13 minutes of wonderfully inventive musical parody need look no further.
