FLESH AND BONES, 1982 --------------------- MISFITS / NECROS / BLACK FLAG at HITTSVILLE DEC 25 Gosh! The Misfits & The Necros playing on Christmas! I can't think of a better present! I got to the club and there was Henry doing warmup exercises! Gosh! Black Flag was here to do an unannounced set! It started with "Clocked In" and some other old & new songs... I saw Black Flag last summer with Dez on vocals and didn't think they were that great, but Henry adds a lot to the band with his intense & psychotic behavior. He paced the stage like a caged animal, yelling, breathing heavily, glaring into the crowd with a look of desperation. But the only thing that bothered me was that Henry was singing someone else's lyrics. If he's got the straight edge (no alcohol or drugs) what's he doing singing "Six Pack?"... The Necros were great tonight, but you know that already. Lots of fun live, they did stuff off their two EPs plus new songs like "Raw To The Bone" & "Bad Dream." Corey swayed back & forth, slinging his bass around and almost ----------------------?----------------- the place, Brian played his guitar, and Todd did a good job on an unsteady drum riser. When it was over we yelled for more, but the DJ played "Dancing With Myself" which made all the new wavers happy... it was just past midnight when the DJ music & lights went off. Four dark figures slithered onstage, black eyes staring from out of death-like faces, searching for warm-blooded victims in the young virgin audience. The Misfits dug into "Halloween." For The Misfits it was still Halloween. Jerry Only's bass began to malfunction and by the end of the song there was a pile of twisted plastic & charred wires at this feet. They did old & new material - "Bullet," "Vampira," "Hate Breeders," "Teenagers From Mars," etc. Glenn Danzig's new haircut & sinister smile made him look just like a rat. The set ended when all of Jerry and Doyle's guitars were gone. I walked out to my car and two cop cars raced by chasing each other, one of them playing the "Lone Ranger Theme" on his radio.
