13 Crimson Ghosts - A surf tribute to the Misfits

Click here for too much horror business!

In life there are some pleasures that cannot be described in words. Fortunately, this is one of them that really can be. So much so in fact, that their old bassist has taken it upon himself to bootleg this album on his own and not share any profits with the band. Heck, their own website describes him as an asshole.

I can't say that I blame him though. I mean, this is probably thee most fantastic tribute album I've ever heard....and it's instrumental at that!

When I first popped this in I immediately cracked a wide smile. These guys are so rad to have created this masterpiece. After hearing this album you should go out there and buy more from them because it's really clear that this band doesn't simply make surf rock...they do their homework too!

This band got way better when they dropped the 13 and became known as the Crimson Ghosts.

13 Ghosts and the Crimson Ghosts are two totally different bands.

Just to clarify, the guitarist booted the lp. It's a long story that I won't try telling because the guitarist would kill me for fucking up details. Long story short: The bass player owed the guitarist several hundred dollars and refused to pay him. The boot pressing made enough to make that money back and once he did he sold the rest at cost.
