Thanks for posting this, cool! Can you fix the link to the 3d cover image? I'd like to be able to see it The Cramps - .Off The Bone Enregistrer un commentaire. Conjuring a fiendish witches' brew of primal rockabilly, grease-stained '60s garage rock, vintage monster movies, perverse and glistening sex, and the detritus and effluvia of 50 years of American pop culture, the Cramps are a truly American creation much in the manner of the Cadillac, the White Castle hamburger, the Fender Stratocaster, and Jayne Mansfield.
Often imitated, but never with the same psychic resonance as the original, the Cramps celebrate all that is dirty and gaudy with a perverse joy that draws in listeners with its fleshy decadence, not unlike an enchanted gingerbread house on the Las Vegas strip. Caravelli - Rain And Tears two quickly took note Natasha Kozaily - A Tale Of One Fish (File) one another, but major sparks didn't began to fly until a few weeks later, when they discovered they were both enrolled in a course on "Art and Shamanism" at Sacramento City College.
These two lovebirds were soon sharing both an apartment and their collective enthusiasm for the stranger and more obscure sounds of rock's first era, as well as the more flamboyant music of the day. Their passion for music led them to the conclusion that they should form a band, and Kristy picked up a The Cramps - .Off The Bone and adopted the stage name Poison Ivy Rorschach, while future vocalist Erick became Pipes And Drums March Past - The Liberty High School Grenadier Band / Regimental Band Of Her Majesty Interior, after short spells as Raven Beauty and Vip Vop.
Ivy and Lux hit the road for Ohio, and after living frugally in Akron for a year and a half, they made their way to New York City in in search of stardom. While working at a record store, Interior made the acquaintance of fellow employee Greg Beckerleg, who had recently arrived from Detroit and also wanted to form a band. Beckerleg transformed himself into primal noise guitarist Bryan Gregory, and even persuaded his sister to join the nascent combo as a drummer.
Between Ivy's twangy single-note leads, Bryan's shower-of-sparks reports of noise, Lux's demented banshee howling, and Miriam's primitive stomp, the Cramps didn't sound like anyone else on the budding New York punk scene, and the foursome soon began attracting both crowds and buzz with their shows at CBGB's and Max's Kansas City. After about a year of gigging in and around New York, Linna left the group, and another former Ohioan, Nick Stephanoff known to his fans as Nick Knox and previously a member of infamous The Beatles - Sgt.
Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band noise terrorists the Electric Eels took over behind the drums, and this version of the Cramps released the group's first recordings, a pair of 7" singles recorded in Memphis with Alex Chilton as producer and issued by the band's own Vengeance Records label.
InMiles Copeland signed the band to his fledgling new wave label I. Records, and their first 12" release was an EP featuring The Cramps - .Off The Bone material from their self-released singles, entitled "Gravest Hits". That same year, the band traveled to Europe for the first time, playing as opening act for the Police and stealing the show from the peroxide-addled pop stars many nights. The Cramps returned to Memphis with Chilton to record their first full-length album, 's masterful "Songs the Lord Taught Us", but what should have been a triumphant U.
