Lux Interior, lead singer and songwriter for the Cramps, died yesterday from an existing hart condition. He founded the Cramps with his wife Poison Ivy.
The Cramps wee best described as Rockabilly from Hell. Their songs were short, sharp and twisted. Their stage show always verged on the obscene. They were twisted, demented, dangerous, sexual and always on fire with an unholy energy. All the things rock and roll should be. It’s hard to describe them so let me show you a couple of live performance clips.
As usual on the edge of an obscenity bust and crackling with raw sexual energy, Lux Interior will be very missed by many of us.
