Jerry Only’s long awaited Misfits special project showcasing punk covers of 1950’s era classics has arrived! Nothing short of an all-star line-up from the punk genre (and then some) has assembled to bring this creature to life. All tracks feature Misfits founding member Jerry Only heading the attack on Bass and lead vocals with Marky Ramone of The Ramones adding his world famous flair on drums and percussion that landed him the honor of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Dez Cadena of Black Flag using various guitars adding just the right sound to fit each song. 1960’s pop-rock icon Ronnie Spector known for the classic hits “Be My Baby” and “Baby I love You” (to name just a few), lends her inimitable vocals to “This Magic Moment” and “You Belong to Me”. Jimmy Destri of Blondie contributes his expertise on keyboards for the cuts “Runaway” & “Great Balls of Fire”. Also featured is long time Misfits collaborator John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar) contributing melodic punk-pop backing vocals to “Dream Lover”, “Monster Mash” and “Runaway”. Ed Manion who has performed with a wide variety of artists including Del Shannon provides saxophone for “Diana” and “Runaway”. The gamut of 50’s era music has been reinterpreted for this special project along with a couple of hits from the 60’s that were must haves for this theme driven collection.

2. Dream Lover
3. Diana
