The Cramps

The Cramps are a cataclysmic rampaging force of Americana's darkside! This surrealistic pop-culture quartet provides a sinisterlandscape to those places our parents dared not dream. They are quite simply the four alien-horsemen of theapocalypse;devouring the earth with it's paradoxicaleuphemisms,ear-splintering guitars,thundering bass chords, and the deeppercussion of barbarian wardrums. What artists like Todd Schorr and Glen Barr are to the likes of Walt Disney and Hannah-Barberra;The Cramps are to The Brian Setzer Orchestra. They are the every-villain!

The Cramps are a cataclysmic rampaging force of Americana's darkside! This surrealistic pop-culture quartet provides a sinisterlandscape to those places our parents dared not dream. They are quite simply the four alien-horsemen of theapocalypse;devouring the earth with it's paradoxicaleuphemisms,ear-splintering guitars,thundering bass chords, and the deeppercussion of barbarian wardrums. What artists like Todd Schorr and Glen Barr are to the likes of Walt Disney and Hannah-Barberra;The Cramps are to The Brian Setzer Orchestra. They are the every-villain! The absolute embodiement of punk-rock'n'roll. Most people quite simply won't get what The Cramps are about. But, to those who find themselves being drawn intothe counter culture of degenerates,ingrates, and other bastards, you will find sanctuary with this band. Albums like 'The Smellof Female', 'A Date With Elvis', 'Stay Sick!', and 'Fiends of Dope Island' truly define the twisted nature of this crew. FrontmanLux Interior's sneering Elvis impression fused with a Captain Jack Sparrow-like demeanor, gives The Cramps it's undeniablepresence! Throw in the raucouse seduction of Miss Poison Ivy's guitar riffs and you have the best American Band since... ever!!!Fans of The Butthole Surfers,White Zombie, and The Misfits can take notes to see how it all is really done. « hide
