The Cramps are an American rock band, formed in 1976. Their line-up has rotated much over the years, with the husband and wife duo of lead singer Lux Interior and lead guitarist Poison Ivy as the only permanent members.

They were part of the early CBGB punk rock movement that had emerged in New York. By being the first known band to blend punk with rockabilly, The Cramps are widely recognized as precursors of psychobilly. Furthermore, they are also regarded as innovators of garage punk.

Their music is mostly in blues form, played at varying, (though usually fast) tempos, with a very minimal drumkit.[citation needed] An integral part of the early Cramps sound is dual guitars, without a bassist. The content of their songs and image is campy, trashy Americana (alternately in the style of filmmakers John Waters and David Lynch), sexual fetishism, clever bad jokes, and cheap, retro horror B-movie clich?

Their sound was heavily influenced by early rockabilly and proto-rock and roll like Link Wray and Hasil Adkins, 1960s surf music acts such as The Ventures and Dick Dale, 1960s garage rock artists like The Standells, The Gants, The Trashmen, The Green Fuz and The Sonics,[citation needed] as well as the post-glam/early punk scene from which they emerged. They also were influenced to a degree by The Ramones and Screamin' Jay Hawkins, who is often credited for having pioneered their style of theatrical horror-blues.[citation needed]

In turn, they have strongly influenced subsequent punk and rockabilly revival bands, even creating a genre in their wake. "Psychobilly," a style played by bands like The Meteors is a term coined by the Cramps, although Lux Interior maintains that the term does not describe their own style.The Cramps also influenced or anticipated acts like Black Lips, The Birthday Party, Flat Duo Jets, The Fuzztones, The Gun Club, The Horrors, Inca Babies, James Chance and the Contortions, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Reverend Horton Heat, and The White Stripes.

RIP Lux :)


Second band I saw live. I was about 15 at the time. Amazing. Bit scary for a young lad at only his second gig. But what a band. And Lux is up there with the best on stage music entertainers.

Sad loss.

Anyone not familiar with The Cramps you could d worse than buy all three of these CD's. If it's just one though, I'd get Off The Bone, or Songs The Lord...., or, no, just ge all three.

The first two are part of the "three for £10" deal at Play also.

I Agree. Sad loss and I missed what was the final opportunity to see him live in the UK last year.

I am sure he will be rockin' in his coffin.

Well, I would've found out sooner or later. Glad you told me, well, not exactly glad, if you know what I mean; but I would have wanted to know.

BTW, first band Isaw live was The Cult and the third, Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Just about sums up my confused musical tastes that remain with me today. I can happily listed to some bizarre 60's or a bit of Carmina Burana.

RIP Lux.
Am always listening to 'A Date with Elvis' album on the drive home.
#13
Good find andy, HOT from me :)
#14
i didnt hear he had died yesterday!!
sad sad loss...
#15
Cynical marketing or sheer coincidence ?
#16
if you only get one, "Songs The Lord Taught Us" is the one for me.

Sad loss, Lux was a real star the like of which does not come around too often.

Which makes you all the better for it!, my wife has often stated I am a musical nazi!, and that I should have been a music journalist for the NME or something.

Sometimes I have to face it, she does have a insy weensy minute thread of evidence in her assumptions :oops:

Sorry to hear that - you set the benchmark somewhat low there!

I thought The Cult were a great (recorded) band back in the 80's but absolutely awful live - it took 3 separate concerts (Love, Electric & Sonic Temple) to confirm that they were absolutely pants live - one time I saw them they supported Iggy Pop who absolutely blew them away!!!

Here's me back in '86 in my psychobilly days :roll:

And you were ever a fan of big flat-tops here's my mate Paul :w00t:

Off the Bone would be my album of choice - Lets Get Fvcked Up! :whistling:

i saw THE CULT years ago and also last year...Mr Astburys head is still firmly lodged up his own ass...
#21
I only ever liked The Cult's "Love" Album personally, went too mainstream rock for my personal liking.
#22
Wow thats some cool madge simpson hairstyle hes got going on :w00t:

TV Set and Garbage Man are the two songs I remember from this band. Didn' they do the film soundtrack to 'Return of the Living Dead' ? (of which Garbage Man is one)
