The Computers ARE Misfits! (Record Store Day release)

08 Oct 2012

After toiling over their second full length release, The Computers returned from the US wanting to do something a bit different… and so hatched the idea of a special release for Record Store Day Black Friday 2012. Over to drummer Aidan Sin.

“One cold, dark, misty night, we were rolling round the Yorkshire Dales in search of a neon light to rest our weary heads, after playing yet another electrifying show. I was at the wheel and to keep my eyes zapped and alert, I had Static Age by Misfits blasting out - one of the finest punk rock albums of all time, fact! A few tracks in and Screaming Al shouts from the back “This sounds like punk rock Elvis!”

And so the seed was planted. We had to do this - make these songs sound like the were recorded 30 years before they were. A perfect hybrid of everything I love. The songs already have a strong rock n roll sensibility so it seemed like an obvious thing to do. With the skilled recording hands of Fred E Stair, we bashed out this record in an afternoon. Being avid record collectors, we’ve wanted to release something for Black Friday since it first happened. This was the perfect opportunity to combine our love of punk, rock n roll, Elvis, Danzig, hair and vinyl. To be honest, there’s not much else worth caring about. Enjoy the darkness!”

For Record Store Day Black Friday (23 Nov) 2012, The Computers release a limited-to-500 10” picture disc featuring seven of their favourite Misfits songs done in their rock n soul style.

To get people in the mood they play three shows as Misfits for Halloween:

OCTOBER
26th LONDON Voodoo Rock @ Electrowerks
27th EXETER Cavern
31st KINGSTON New Noise at Bacchus
