This was THE Louisville Misfits covers compilation, re-released in October 2007 by the Louisville is for Lovers label.

Track Listing:

Everyone's got to go back to their roots at one time or another. Well, it's about time for Louisville to acknowledge it's punk rock heritage. So the folks here at the Analog Distillery thought, "What better way to pay homage to the ideals of punk rock than to produce a compilation of local bands covering songs by the Misfits?" Why not? Most everyone in these bands has at least heard of the Misfits. Many have been devout followers and some still are. With that we decided to release a cassette of bands covering their favorite Misfit songs, each performed in the manner that they saw fit. As far as style is concerned, most of these songs are considerably different than their original counterparts. It ranges from techno to dance to pop to noise to old fashioned punk. The sound comes full circle. Remember, there are no Distillery employees on their tape. We aren't doing this for recognition or self-promotion. We're doing it for the appreciation of the bands, including the Misfits, that have helped us to develop our own individual tastes.

Digitally mastered at Outer Limits on 7/21/94 by Herb Simrall.

Last Minute Update:... a new band, Munsen, has been added to "Louisville babylon", covering a unique medley of "Braineaters" and "Teenagers From Mars". unfortunantly, only a portion of the track appears due to limited space. Little is known about this band, other than the line-up and the title:

Munsen "Braineaters From Mars" - The Gimp:left guitar, vocals, vomit. Buger Lompson: right guitar. Ozzie DuWetzel: guest percussionist.

Also due to scheduling difficulties, Pulse did not appear with their rendition of "London Dungeon". We offor our apologies to Michel and the gang and we still think that Pulse is smokin'. Check out their single on Three Little Girls; it rocks. Otherwise, have a nice day, and write/call if you feel the need to.
