Cramps-flavoured compilation due
Righteous Records release Bad Music For Bad People: Songs The Cramps Taught Us on 16 November.
This is a 26 track collection of wild irreverent rockabilly, demented rock ‘n’ roll, wanton blues and the occasional Elvis wannabe. Vintage performances that were discovered by Lux and Ivy of The Cramps and spun on their various radio shows for WFMU or on Lux’s Purple Knif Show. Many of the tracks here were also covered by The Cramps in their live sets or acted as inspiration for the band’s own self-penned tunes.
