Second Edition (a.k.a. "Official Bootleg Edition")
Non-Profit Zine Series #1: This 5.5” x 8.5”, 32 page, stapled "Official Bootleg Edition" was printed "old school" on house papers at his local FedEx copy shop in a limited edition of 75. The cover paper is blue, the interior white, and it uses only black photocopier ink from cover to cover. It's also housed in a white envelope to further distinguish it from the first edition's black envelope. This process was less expensive than the first and therefore the price is 7.99, $2 less than the first edition.
Featuring the stories behind Tom Bejgrowicz’s work with the Misfits at Caroline Records, this second edition (a.k.a. the "Official Bootleg Edition") of 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.
After donating $400 from the first edition, 100% of net profits will yet again 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 for this edition is to donate $225 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.”
