Misfits is all about the little man and the outcast: nerds with ridiculous psychological problems, sick people, transvestites, self-isolated rock junkies, prejudiced middle-class workers scared to death by disastrous social changes. All of these personages, which had always been popular with Ray, make an almost ‘ensemble appearance’ here. To Ray Davies’ credit, he does not shy from addressing his increasing irrelevance on this deeply flawed but compelling confessional. The title is an apt summary of his painfully acute self-awareness. Features ‘Rock & Roll Fantasy’, ‘Live Life’ and ‘Hay Fever’.
