Wow I have been busy, only finding out today, care of Penny on the MHB boards, that Lux Interior died this past week. He was half of the band The Cramps, well-loved punk rock psychedelic rockabilly band.

Yes, that all goes together.

RIP, Lux. & May your heaven be paved in gold lame.

This is them doing “What’s Inside a Girl?” (which was one of my favorite tracks):

  1. I especially love the gum-chewing blase’ness of the band while Lux is doing his restless,jittery thing…RIP indeed..say hi to Sid.

  2. Oh, I hadn’t heard this! Wow, that’s sad. We saw The Cramps once back in Boston, many moons ago. Needless to say, it was a wild show. When Lux started crowd surfing, I know he had his underwear on. By the time he got back to the stage, not so much. 🙂

    Thanks for this news, Helen.

  3. I’m not *that* much into psychobilly, but of course it goes together. I played the video because I haven’t heard The Cramps in ages. Great sound!!!
