I'm Cramped


2 weeks, and I still got the rumble in my chest and general malaise.

So, fuck all that and it's Cramps time.

Masters of pyschobilly and quite possibly the greatest live band of all time.

And... curators and revivalists of the sickest and most twisted songs the universe!

Who else would perform at a mental hospital?



Many times o'er the years have I witnessed Mssrs Interior (rip) and Rorshach tearing up stages.

Fave memories?

High on acid at the Peppermint Lounge during the recording of "Smell Of Female"- my buddy Rob of the semi legendary Stinky & The Skunks taking a boot from Lux upside the head.

or

just watching Poison Ivy wielding that gee-tar, resplendint in fishnets. Grrrrr baby, real grrrrrr.




Here's the motherload:
LUX AND IVY'S FAVORITES-  12 CD'S FOR YER DOWNLOADING PLEASURE


Also, here's the "Purple Knife" collection- Lux spinning his fave toonage.

I want to also recommend the following link for Trebuchet- they have a fantastic interview with Lux and Posion Ivy detailing their love affair- It's sooo romantic that I have a renewed faith in humankind. Or something.

Cramp away, mofo's!
