Lux Interior died in California last night. The Cramps were one of a kind and he was one the best front men ever to dominate a stage. I saw them years ago when I was young and closed minded and they opened me up to a whole world of dark Americana sound. They were so unique in there approach, especially considering that they came from the same time and place as the Television, The New York Dolls, CBGB’s, Maxs’ Kansas City etc. There mixture of B Horror with Hillbilly/Surf music has never been duplicated. Today is for him and Poison Ivy. He was 62. Respect.
