SOLD OUT!!! THANK YOU!!!
Non-Profit Zine Series #1: Featuring the stories behind Tom Bejgrowicz’s work with the Misfits at Caroline Records, Should I Quit Or Do You Want To Fire Me? draws upon Bejgrowicz’s extensive archive of letters, faxes, meeting minutes, and visual materials to help tell the tale of how records like the coffin box set, Static Age, Collection II, and 12 Hits From Hell came together… or, in some case, fell apart.
This 5.5” x 8.5”, 32 page, gold stapled zine was printed by the folks at Risolve Studio using the risography process in a limited edition of 138. The cover features Metallic Gold overprinted with Federal Blue risography ink printed onto three colors of French Pop-Tone 65# cover stock: Orange Fizz, Sour Apple, and Bubblegum. The interior 28 pages are printed using Federal Blue ink and Mohawk Via Vellum Cream White 70# text.
100% of net profits will be donated to the Pennsylvania SPCA (pspca.org) to support their efforts in rescuing, rehabilitating, and placing animals in forever homes throughout the state. The goal is to donate $250-$300 to help their Philadelphia, Danville, and Lancaster, PA centers.
From the author’s Foreword: Bejgrowicz says, “Working with the band is something I cherish to this day. Although it was rough going for much of the time, I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything in the world. The Misfits, alongside fellow American bands like Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys, are a rite of passage for those seeking to stand in opposition to the mainstream. Because of this enduring legacy, I get asked about my work with the band more than any other singular act in my career.”
NOTE: For the collector’s amongst us, there are 40 orange covers, 51 green, and 47 pink. Like selecting the size of a piece of clothing, you can select your choice of color from the drop down menu when ordering. Pick your favorite color or collect all three! While orange is an expected choice for the band's Halloween roots, the green and pink covers really show off the metallic gold. For the record, Bejgrowicz’s favorite is the pink (an homage to the 16 "Pink Legacy's" out there).
