Misery Obscura

11 01 2011

As any sane person will already know, punk rock is the best genre/subculture/movement in the universe (yeah, you heard Star Wars nerds) and one of its all-conquering kings were/are the Misfits. I absolutely adore the band and love most things related to them, so, you can imagine my delight when my big brother presented me with Misery Obscura: The photography of Eeerie Von (1981-2009) this Crimbo.

Packed full of amazing anecdotes and rare shots of both the ‘Fits, Samhain and Danzig, the book is a rare insight into one of the most exciting bands in the world (as told by one of their most famous Fiends) and I can’t wait to get stuck into this tonight. Check out this amazing shot of Danzig at Elvis’ grave from 1984. How cool is that???
