Hell yes!

I saw The Cramps in 2004 and Lux had some sort of metal teeth grille thing (from losing or bashing out all his teeth?) of the kind you see hip hop singers sporting. he had a bottle of wine on stage and seemed beyond fucked up.

But -- is there a more perfect LP, start to finish, than Bad Music for Bad People? No Killing Joke answers! :)

Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat/Fugazi fame has always said the 1st punk show he went to was The Crams in the ate 70s. They are one of the originally first wave bands. RIP Lux!!!


I was at the Peppermint Lounge (5th Ave.) the night they recorded Smell Of Female back in 1983. It was spring break and as usual, I was in NYC and not in Florida with my classmates.
They played the identical set twice for the benefit of the recording. A very good memory.
Lux was in full force and funny as hell. Hard to imagine a music venue on 5th avenue today...

The Cramps never got enough credit.
