How about the fucking CRAMPS

Jungle-rockabilly-punk-cannabil-rip your flesh shit, if you are not familiar with the Cramps, is it not time to join the rest of the world?

OK, the Cramps...one of the greatest punkabilly bands of our time, I know many people who dislike tham......guess what I say? "Fuck them?" you got it.......the Cramps were bad ass, cranking out great albums as thought they were sausages for a while.....it's kinda hard to list thier personel, as so many of them have left us, the main conglomerate were, vocalist Lux Interior, guitarist Poison Ivy Rorscharch, dummer Harry Drumdini, and a list of bassists too long for me to get into here......point it they made some damn good music in thier day, and the idea is to share it here with the uninititated.

First up we have the magnificnet EP, "Gravest Hits", which is a wonderment that should be on any shelf, and if nothing else featuresa  freaked out version of "Surfin Bird".......great starting point.


Well, well, as for LP',s  let us begin with the absloute classic "Songs the Lord Taught Us'" a wonderful album that wasn't taken seriously back in the day, but but should be now, because it FUCKING RULES....this is a magnificnet album, this one filled with great bonus tracks, a PERFECT horror-billy collection that is as great as they get, from the cover of the Sonics "Strychnine", plus GREAT SHIT like "Fever", "I Was a Teenage Werewolf", "I'm Cramped", and a BUNCH more, this is one of the finest aned most overlooked rock albums of the 1980's, and I usggest if you are unfamiliar, JUMP, NOW, ON this SUPER EXTENDED VERSION......MAGNIFICENT effort, not kidding.

1981's "Psychedelic Jungle" is as good, seriously, they show growth as well as keeping thier crude rocking sensibility, how you not gonna love "Green Fuz", "Goo Goo Muk", "Rockin Bones" and about ten more,this is another one that BELONGS on your shelf........

In 1983 they released a live mini-LP, the wonderfully titled "Smell of Female", it's great as well, they have an insane version of "Psychotic Reaction", as well as more wonderful treasures.....great band, if you missed them first time I am TRYING to help ya!

1986 gave us "A Date With Elvis", also a fine album for lovers of this psycho-rockabilly schlock......filled with great stuff , such as "Can Your Pussy Do the Dog?", "The Hot Pearl Snatch" and a whole lot more....these guys were no fucking joke.

In 1990 they released "Stay Sick", yet another fine album of on-the-edge psychobilly rock n roll, certainly you won't wish to miss "Bikini Girls With Machine Guns" or "The Creature From the Black Leather Lagoon".......at least I wouldn't, what are you, some kijnda FAGGOT?

They didn't let up a bit with "Look Ma No Head", which features such gems as "Dames Booze, Chains, and Boots", and "Alligator Stomp"......it's another fine disc from these guys, they popped ou classic after classic, and you guys need to educate yourselves as to this GREAT, GREAT American punkabilly thrashing rock n roll!


""Flamejob" came out in 1996, and guess what, it's pretty awesome too...."Let's Get Fucked UP', and of course "Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs" are Cramps Classics, "Route 66" and "Mean Machine" are sure as hell pretty damn good as well.

And on and on....in 1997 they released "Big Beat From Badsville", another good one with great shit like "Like a Bad Girl Should", "It Thing Hard On", and "Burn She-Devil, Burn," plus a bunch of bonus tracks......please do not miss this greatness....

Next up is "Fiends of Dope Island", another winner with "Doctor Fucker MD" and "Elvis Fucking Christ', the Cramps are, after all,the FUCKING CRAMPS......


Lastly I have the mammoth "How to Make a Monster" thing, this is a two disc set of all kindsa demos, alternates, and whatever you might enjoy, Cramps fans, here is the stuff for ya.......RIGHT NOW, I am going to the back room and see if I have a boot or two (I think I do), so I'll be back in uno mumento......

OK, Found ONE at least, "Rockin and Reelin In Auckland New Zealand" a fine bootleg from this wonderful band.....this is a bad ass show, I won't even detail it.......we have a BUNCH of Cramps stuff here,if you like em, Merry Xmas,if you don't, well, who knows' what i'll but up tomorrow! God BLESS YOU ALL!

  4. Hi! Great post about a band I love. Just one thing: the NZ show isn't a bootleg, but a legit LP on their own Vengeance label. For great bootlegs, people should check Live at Club 57 (NYC '79) or Psychedelic Safari (Seattle '82). All available on torrent sites. Cheers
    Matt

  5. I have had a cheeky download of some of these titles - and want to thank you (in no particular order) for your blog, irreverence, broadband width and taste in music - it is much appreciated.

  6. thanks for this post (as well as your others and all your hard work!). I love the Cramps. I found them years and years ago watching Urgh! A Music War and bought Songs the Lord Taught Us shortly afterword. I had the good fortune to see them play live once, also a long long time ago. RIP Lux

  10. The Cramps were/are the greatest American Rock 'N' Roll band of all time - & their best work can be heard on the Ohio Demos comp.
    Thanks for putting all of this prime scooch up - I hope some others get their groove on right here.

  14. For my money, The Cramps video for "Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs" may be one of the best videos ever made!

    Great Post, Scott!

  15. Thanks for the great posts of this great, great band. I notice that you posted them on the birthday of the leader of a band that may be the only other real contender for greatest rock band of all time.
