You know, anybody that denies that Lux Interior and Poison Ivy are the reasons that garage punk, and primitive rock and roll is as popular—if one can use that term—as it is today doesn’t know what they’re talking about!
This 33rd eppy-sode of RadiOblivion starts and ends with personal favorite tracks by The Cramps. It could easily have been a whole show of nothing but The Cramps, but sandwiched betwixt those cuts are some more KILLER songs by such acts as The Cave Men, The TVees, Los Hories, Link Wray and His Ray Men, The Purple Things, Nautiloids, Rodney and The Blazers, The Retrospex, and more!
If you would like to read some of my personal memories of The Cramps visit Michael Kaiser’s Haus. Others have expressed the same sentiment, but if it were not for Lux Interior there would be no RadiOblivion, baby!
Rock and Roll is dead.
Long live The Cramps!
