What exactly is a Hopping Ghost...? Known as Jiangshi in Chinese folklore and kyonshī in Japan, hopping ghosts or hopping vampires are basically a breed of zombie; reanimated corpses dressed in traditional garments from the Qing Dynasty. Rigor mortis has set in so they can only move around by hopping with their arms outstretched! They can't see using traditional vision, instead, they sense living creatures by their breath and seek to absorb the life force of the living. They can be stopped with a scroll to the forehead containing a spell written in a mix of ink and blood, and led by Taoist priests using bells. Some of the streets of Chinatown in NYC (like Doyers st. for example), are said to have been intentionally designed crooked to deter Hopping Ghost attacks; making it difficult for them to navigate through them. The mythology even inspired a string of fantastic Hong Kong films in the 1980Õs, most notably the "Mr. Vampire" series directed by Ricky Lau and starring the immortal Lam-Ching Ying. Ying is often referred to as the "Peter Cushing of Asia" and both he and Lau are given props by Cafiero on the box of the new "Hopping Ghosts" vinyl figures. In an effort to achieve true authenticity, the spell found on the scroll accessory of the Osaka Popstar "Hopping Ghosts" vinyl figures (and seen on the art for the new single), was written by an actual Taoist priest residing in Hong Kong. Beware of cheap imitations, look for official "Hopping Ghosts" vinyl figures available now from Osaka Popstar!

The Garbage Pail Kids are 30 years old and some of the artists behind the gross-out series have teamed up with the filmmakers of “The King of Arcades” documentary in an effort to bring the story of the controversial and explosively popular 80’s card series to the screen. They’ve just launched their "30 Years of Garbage" kickstarter campaign with premiums that include collectible GPK related memorabilia, one of a kind original GPK art, and lots more.

Osaka Popstar was featured in Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids (All-new Series 7), and official GPK art was featured on the cover of the “Rock ‘Em O-Sock ‘Em Live!” EP. The live CD (available on Misfits Records) even includes an exclusive Topps’ GPK bonus trading card inside!

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT—OSAKA POPSTAR IS BACK ON NINTENDO 3DS!



OSAKA POPSTAR'S “INSECTS” DEBUTS IN 3D ON THE NINTENDO 3DS STARTING WED. JUNE 19!

SEE—a militia of punk rock puppies wage music driven warfare against an inevitable assault from off-beat creepy crawlers in all shapes and sizes IN 3D! Armed with guitars and a stack of sky high amps—set up in what could very well be your own backyard—heed their warning: "You better watch out or the Insects will get you..."

In a recent article on the MarketSaw 3D blog Osaka Popstar’s John Cafiero had this to say about the recent team up with Nintendo:

“With all the different components there are to explore in Osaka Popstar, I couldn't imagine a more perfect fit than teaming with Nintendo. Video games have an incredible dynamic mix of audio/visual excitement and Osaka Popstar has kinship in that approach. The imagery stemming from the music, and the animated videos themselves are essentially like video games that have taken on a life of their own, and started playing out in stealth mode. I’d love to take it the next step and reverse that concept, bringing the characters and scenarios into an actual gaming environment...”


On May 24th Osaka Popstar unleashed an army of fire breathing devil dogs and melodic punk with the debut of "Wicked World in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS platform... now, Osaka Popstar returns to Nintendo 3DS with “Insects”.

Cafiero added, “Weʼve done punk versions of the Astro Boy and Sailor Moon themes, and I canʼt tell you how many times fans have requested Osaka Popstar cover the theme to “Sonic X”, so if you do the math, it speaks for itself. Weʼre definitely in the right place with Nintendo, and Iʼm thrilled about it. This is going to be a blast.”

For more details and info on things to come, read the full article online at MarketSaw 3D.

OSAKA POPSTAR & PASSMORELAB TEAM TO RELEASE
INSECTS IN 3D! PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR KIDS OF WIDNEY HIGH

Passmorelab, the San Diego-based 3D production and post studio, has teamed up with indie-punk-rock outfit Osaka Popstar to release of the INSECTS music video in stereoscopic 3D. The music video is a product of producer John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), and British cult animator Joel Veitch, the latter who's garnered a devoted global following with his "Rather Good" videos. The cartoonish, yet photorealistic animated music video, consists of a militia of punk rock puppies armed with guitars and walls of amplifiers.

Osaka Popstar's INSECTS is a catchy upbeat punk-pop re-imagining of the version originally written and recorded by The Kids of Widney High ("KOWH") a Los Angeles based school for mentally and physically challenged children taught by musician Michael Monagan.

Such notable musicians as Smokey Robinson, Jackson Browne, Marilyn Manson and the Beastie Boys' Adam Horowitz have all cited themselves as fans of the KOWH. "We first learned of Michael Monagan's work with the KOWH through OP's cover of Insects. Since then, many of us here at Passmorelab have become big fans of the KOWH and we were all excited to be able to work on a project that will benefit the musical education program at Widney High," said James Humann of Passmorelab.

Cafiero adds: "It's genuinely satisfying to see Osaka Popstar's cover of INSECTS turn new audiences on to KOWH and their work. I've been a longtime fan, so it was great fun covering the song with a different sonic approach. When we charted on alternative radio with the single, it was like a personal victory. I'm a huge aficionado of what's commonly known as "outsider art" and from my perspective, outsiders are insiders. That's been a punk credo since the initial movement of the 70's. We brought something to a wider audience-in a punk rock Trojan horse-that might not have been given a chance by some otherwise. Many people were turned on to something new without even realizing it initially. When they delve further and learn the back-story, they appreciate it even more, and I find that fun and inspiring."

This is the second time Osaka Popstar and Passmorelab have joined forces. Last year, Passmorelab provided 3D for the band's Wicked World video, a product of Cafiero's collaboration with Japanese cult animator Mari-Chan. "Our 3D production style works well for music videos and we enjoyed working on the Wicked World project with Osaka Popstar. We saw INSECTS as a wonderful opportunity to jointly promote the incredible special education program at J.P. Widney High School," said Greg Passmore, President of Passmorelab.

Both INSECTS 3D and WICKED WORLD 3D are available for distribution through Passmorelab on multiple 3D platforms including mobile devices, video on demand, television broadcast and theatrical. All of the producer's net proceeds from the distribution of INSECTS 3D will benefit J.P. Widney High School.

OSAKA POPSTAR & KLAUS BEYER ON THE
DR. DEMENTO SHOW!

This week's episode of the Dr. Demento Show features a "musical mutation" block spotlighting the "Extra Crunchy Product Mix" of Osaka Popstar's "Where's the Cap'n?" back to back with Klaus Beyer's German language cover version "Wo ist der Käpt'n?" from the new "Die Shaolin Affen EP" release!

The Dr. Demento Show is radio's weekly two-hour festival of "mad music" heard on stations coast to coast, and worldwide in streaming audio online. Its a free-wheeling, unpredictable mix of music and comedy. Along with legends like Spike Jones, Stan Freberg, Monty Python, and Frank Zappa, the Doctor plays new funny songs by both amateur and professional singers and comedians alike. This is how the world was first introduced to "Weird Al" Yankovic, who went on to become rock music's best-known musical satirist. A home-made tape that Al made at age 16 and sent to the Doctor provided him with his very first media exposure.

Check out the playlist of Dr. Demento Show #12-30 and listen to the episode online for the "musical mutation" block featuring Osaka Popstar and Klaus Beyer, along with lots of other great demented music you're not likely to hear anywhere else!

Fiend Fact: the song "Rat Fink" recorded by the Misfits in 1979 (see "Collection II") was a cover of the 1963 song parody/novelty record by Allan Sherman, often spun by Doctor Demento.

In a recent interview, John Cafiero told Rolling Stone:"I reached out to Dischord (Fugazi’s label) about covering the song, and eventually had the pleasure of speaking to (Fugazi vocalist) Ian MacKaye personally about it. Conceptually, it was intimidating because talking to Ian MacKaye about covering"Waiting Room" is like walking on metaphorical hallowed ground. But he’s truly someone that lives up to his ethos. On top of that, he couldn’t be a more gracious guy. Like the music he creates, Ian MacKaye is a role model for integrity without pretension."

Each Ltd Ed. screen print purchased through the Misfits Records and Osaka Popstar Online Stores includes free instant MP3 download of the JuiceheaD X Osaka Popstar"Waiting Room" Remix EP.

50 prints were specifically signed, numbered and made available exclusively to select record stores that competed to be among those to receive prints for use in their Record Store Day celebrations. The goal of the release—to reawaken the fun and experience of seeking out treasures from your local record store.

"Indie Record shops have always been a breeding ground of great music, art, culture and ideas, but they’re becoming casualties of modern circumstance," Cafiero says of Record Store Day."It’s exciting and inspiring that artists and individuals are pulling together in recognition of that, and working to create a grass roots uprising in support of maintaining the existence of these small hubs that once were, and to many still are, sacred staples in our society.

To me,"Waiting Room" is truly a punk anthem, and indicative of the indie music movement in general." Cafiero elaborates."I’m proud to have the chance to ignite a flame in its honor for Record Store Day. I don’t think the song, the artwork created for this release, or the intention of everyone, and everything, surrounding this project for that matter, could be any more perfectly suited to the cause.

The artwork perfectly represents the spirit and sound of the record, not to mention it was rendered by a visual pioneer in his own rite, Shepard Fairey (Obey Giant Art/Studio Number One)—another icon of indie, DIY street ethics, and a success story to boot. There are so many different facets to this project. If I wasn’t one of the creators behind the release, I’d have marked my calendar and readied to seek it out on Record Store Day. I encourage those who like what they hear to seek out more material from JuiceheaD, Osaka Popstar—and for the uninitiated—Fugazi of course.

Be sure to ask for them at your local record store…" – John Cafiero

JUICEHEAD"SINKING SHIP"
REVIEW IN KERRANG

Kerrang, the world’s biggest selling weekly rock magazine, had some kind words to say about the new album from JuiceheaD:"How to Sail a Sinking Ship".

"This is the sound of popular punk from an age when it actually wasn’t very popular. Chicago’s JuiceheaD belong to a school of bands—Misfits, Adolescents, 7 Seconds—who pulled up to ratty venues in knackered vans and played energized pop songs at high volume. Their sound has about it an innate charm, and more than that it has a bucketful of choruses many of which are fit to be sung in the shower….an enjoyable album." - Ian Winwood.

"JuiceheaD crank out some bustin O.S. punk rock; taking me back to my skater youth. They play hard and fast with some hints of ska, and entice a rather nice pit mid-set. They do look happy powering through songs ‘Rotting From The Inside’ ‘The American Dream’ ‘ Deadly Nightshade’ ‘Open Sore’ ‘Internal Bleeding’ ‘Disenchanted Youth’ and several more from their debut CD ‘How To Sail A Sinking Ship’ before dragging out a buddy to sing along to ‘Covered In Blood’ and finally closing their set with ‘Death Of Democracy’ (how’s that for punk rock) leaving behind a pleased crowd and me wanting to check out more about them.

Now the Misfits (should) need no introduction… the crowd swells largely here as the house lights dim, and all the stage attire is finely stripped of the black shrouds that have kept all the props ‘a secrecy’. Dramatically opening with title track from the new Cd ‘Devil’s Rain’ the Misfits are clearly here to prove to, and blow away any doubters…Jerry Only powers impressively through a well presented live stage set (props and lights included) concluding the first part of the set, quite rightly, being dedicated to for-said new Cd. Finally stopping for a few short words and then it’s old school time baby… ‘Static Age’ ‘Where Eagles Dare’ ‘ Death Comes Ripping’ ‘She’ and plenty more classics…and finishing the set with favorite ‘We Are 138’ before leaving the stage for a few minutes to return... An extensive encore of old classics and some new thrown in follows on. Set closer ‘Die Die My Darling’ is played at rocket speed finishing what proved to be a great Misfits gig. Jerry Only’s voice carried all the songs superbly keeping a classic Misfit vibe, and even the two songs that Dez sang fit in to secure the legacy that the Misfits are back and mean business (all be it a different line up, but a damn good one at that)."

"This was a night with Jerry Only behind the reigns, a night that will make your ears bleed but ultimately leave you screaming for more.

Photo: Hannah Cole

…the legendary JuiceheaD from Chicago managed to get a mosh pit going from the start to the very end of their set. The three-piece punk band delivered a lively and upbeat performance of dirty, jaw splitting tunes of every way, shape and form. With the comical facial expressions of vocalist Rob Vannice these guys were more than fun to watch.  From front to the back of the room they got the crowd well and truly hyped with their sing-along chorus’s and aggressive riffs. By the end of their set the audience were just about ready to wee their pants in excitement for The Misfits.

After a long and climatic intro with inches of smoke from the fog machine The Misfits were up and what an entrance they made! With skulls attached to every mike stand and a drum kit that looks like it had just risen from the grave. It was evident that the fans of Reading were in for a long night of horror fueled fun. With each song blasting into the next one Jerry Only left no time for applause and no time to stop the pits. It’s true what they say, there’s no rest for the wicked. With the generic dirty, grimy fast paced beats that make The Misfits so inspiring it is no wonder they are the iconic band they are. Jerry’s graphite bass guitar sounded as heavy as it probably was to hold and his trademark spiky leather jacket just added this surreal zombie, metal hedgehog look to the whole stage set. The strobe lighting got the crowd going crazy and the fists the high in the air as fans screamed along to the harsh sound of Jerry’s voice. By the end of the night it took an hour to get my hearing back but it was so worth it. With more line-up changes over the years than you can shake a fork at,  them members that now make up The Misfits are incredible. Jerry has still got it, and his voice is still as unique and mind blowing as it always was. Make sure you check them out on the rest of their UK tour while you still can!"

JUICEHEAD'S "HOW TO SAIL A SINKING SHIP" "SPOTLIGHT" FEATURE ON MUSIC-NEWS.COM!

"This is real punk, not the overblown Punk-pop of Blink 182 or prog-punk of Green Day. About a hundred numbers (actually 20) with titles like ‘Rotting From The Inside’ or ‘Deadly Nightshade’ or ‘No Regrets’, produced by Ramones collaborator John Cafiero and even loaded with little twists like Cello from Melora Creager (Nirvana & Rasputina) on ‘Black Roses’ or the Punk Pipers on ‘When I Fall From Grace’. The talents on show actually bring to mind The Pogues in their ‘Rum Sodomy & The Lash’ days, not for the music but the integrity and the preparedness to do different things." - ANDY SNIPPER

TODD MARINOVICH IS A FIEND:
"THE MARINOVICH PROJECT" AIRS SAT DEC 10TH @ 9PM ET ON ESPN



Marinovich. For a generation of sports fans, the name conjures an epic saga in a single word. Over time, the name has become shorthand for one of sport's most cautionary tales.

Todd Marinovich was seemingly raised to be the perfect athlete, meticulously engineered and nurtured into a star quarterback. Dubbed"the bionic kid" and "Robo QB" by the media, his performance lived up to the name. He set records, vied for the Heisman at USC and was selected in the first round of the ‘91 NFL draft by his hometown LA Raiders. But two years later, he was out of the NFL, facing drug addiction and in search of a life beyond football. "The Marinovich Project" tells the unvarnished story of Todd's unique ascent to stardom, the dark descent that followed, and how Todd traded an opportunity at sports stardom for the chance to be himself.

"The Marinovich Project" airs Sat. Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN revealing the real person behind the persona and the story that has never been told.

Also airing Sat. Dec. 10th @ 11pm ET on ESPN2 and Sunday Dec. 11th @ 5am ET on ESPN2

Those who tune in to the new ESPN Films documentary will learn that in addition to being an established artist, Todd Marinovich is a fiend. His Misfits hat (which appears in the film) is a one of a kind made for him by his best friend and former band mate Marco Forster. Marco tragically passed away last summer.

"In todays trendy pop-culture The Misfits' skull is the essence of 'cool' because it truely is.
But for me, it goes much deeper into the music and the artists' that create it
."
- Todd Marinovich

JUICEHEAD"SINKING SHIP" REVIEW @ HEAVY METAL TIME MACHINE

“Longtime Misfits & Ramones collaborator John Cafiero does a great job capturing JuiceheaD's youthful spirit on this record. His production is sound enough while retaining enough punk edge to make the album feel like an old familiar friend. The album has unreal hooks and feels like honest to God punk. This is a rare event these days with corporate pop/punk bands and mallcore crashing our industry. These kids sound like the real deal and write songs full of honest rage, frustration, hope and sadness. With guests like Osaka Popstar frontman Cafiero (who does backing vocals for the awesome"Rotting from the Inside"), cellist Melora Creager (Nirvana, Rasputina) and The Punk Pipers (who add traditional bagpipes to the track"When I Fall From Grace") the album has loads to offer. It is good to know there is still traditional punk bands out there like JuiceheaD who play with a chip on their shoulder and a thirst to right the real wrongs of this world." – Andy, Heavy Metal Time Machine

MISFITS: THE DEVIL’S RAIN

"The Devil's Rain" is the judgment of all others who stand before us, like a prophecy. The old B-movie was an influence to some of the lyrics, but the song itself is as if the heavens opened and swallowed our enemies. They have...and a new"rain" of terror begins"

- Jerry Only

The Misfits return with their long awaited, first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade! Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes fiends crave, "The Devil's Rain" showcases 16 fiendish, soon-to-be Misfits classics including "Twilight of the Dead", "Dark Shadows", "Curse of the Mummy's Hand" and the title track itself, "The Devil's Rain". Produced by Ed Stasium, (who's credits include the Ramones' "Road to Ruin" and "Too Tough to Die", as well as the Misfits' 1999 release "Famous Monsters"), the album showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band's iconic "Fiend" mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). The packaging, designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, also features some incredible new Misfits portraits shot by the legendary Mick Rock. Rock's imagery (which includes Bowie, Iggy, Queen, Debbie Harry, and the Ramones to name a few), has become part of the very fabric of rock 'n' roll. Having also served as an on-set photographer for cult-movie classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Rock lends a perfectly suited eye to view the band's surrealistic and highly theatrical persona. "The Devil's Rain" is not just a continuation of a historic legacy, it's a total reboot ushering in a new era of terror. In a sense, it's the debut album from the legendary Misfits of this decade. From fans of their classics, to newcomers discovering the band for the very first time, "The Devil's Rain" sets the bar, and redefines the ferocity and melody that has made the Misfits omnipresent and immortal.

First press Ltd. Deluxe Edition CD digipak includes an exclusive 9.5" x 14" two-sided poster featuring the incredible cover art by Arthur Suydam (treated with Glow-In-The-Dark ink!), plus a fantastic new band portrait by legendary photographer Mick Rock on the reverse.

Available now in stores and online wherever music is sold.

MISFITS & OSAKA POPSTAR FEATURED IN STICKER ART CULTURE BOOK: STICKERS: FROM PUNK ROCK TO CONTEMPORARY ART

Whether you’re a punk, skater, graffiti artist, musician, clothing brand, political activist, fine artist, or just a fan of a band, stickers have always been the perfect way to express oneself. 

"Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art" is a great new book by DB Burkeman and Monica LoCascio, with introductions by Shepard Fairey & Carlo McCormick. The book was published by Rizzoli, a leader in art and design books.

Among the works spotlighted in the comprehensive collective, the Misfits iconic Fiend Skull is featured, along with a quote from Misfits founding member Jerry Only himself about the logo’s impact on pop culture.

Three different Osaka Popstar sticker designs, art directed by John Cafiero, including the Devil Dog (illustrated by Mari-chan), Osaka Monstar (by Dalek) and Osaka Popcan (by John Pound), are also featured within the 308 page oversized coffee table book.

Stickers features approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Cheap, democratic, easy to "tag," and not always fast to fade, the sticker has been an ever-present medium—from the New York and London underground punk scene to skate culture and political expression. Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium, Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. The book includes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon (Black Flag); street artists such as  Shepard Fairey, Banksy and Kaws; and amateur artists who "tag" the streets anonymously. The book illustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. The book even includes eight sheets of stickers.

“Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art" is out now in stores and online everywhere in Standard Softcover Edition OR, for hardcore collectors, pick up the Deluxe Ltd. Hardcover Edition packaged in an oversized clamshell box. Includes 23 original die-cut stickers, many of which are signed by the artist.

Check out a commercial for the book online featuring music by the Buzzcocks.

In Spring 2000, the Cap'n was back. This time it was revealed he was in Volcanica (at the center of the Earth) saving the Earth's supply of Crunchium.

OSAKA CHARTS @ #12 IN TOP 20 ALT ROCK/POWER POP BANDS

NYC’s The Deli Magazine recently ran a piece on Osaka Popstar and currently lists the band @ #12 in the their top 20 Alt Rock/Power Pop bands.

Here’s a blurb from the article:

“Osaka Popstar is led by filmmaker by day and rock star by night, John Cafiero. Cafiero injects not only his high pitched Dickies-esque vocals but a healthy love of anime to the band's pulsating punk rock. So don’t be surprised if you find a pit forming to songs about beloved Japanese character"Astro Boy" or a bunch of crazied "Shaolin Monkeys".
