MISFITS book author and veteran punk drummer Joel Gausten (PIGFACE, THE UNDEAD, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN) has posted previously unreleased rehearsal/demo versions of the MISFITS songs "Nike A Go Go" and "I Turned Into A Martian" at this location.Like Gausten's previously posted released demos for "London Dungeon", "Astro Zombie", "Hatebreeders", "Angelfuck" and "She", the two newly posted tracks were recorded in February 1995 at the MISFITS' rehearsal compound in New Jersey and feature Jerry Only on bass, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein on guitar, Eric Weiss on vocals and Gausten on drums. The song was part of an 11-song demo recording engineered by MISFITS drummer-to-be Dr. Chud. These tracks were recorded several months prior to Michale Graves becoming the band's official singer. At the time of the recording, Gausten had been serving as one of the band's fill-in rehearsal drummers while the group was auditioning vocalists. Gausten detailed his experiences with the MISFITS in his out-of-print 2006 book, "Tales of Horror: The History of The Misfits & The Undead", which will be re-released this spring as a "deluxe edition" with a new cover by artist Shannon Gardner and updated/expanded information on both the MISFITS and THE UNDEAD.
