DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

THE CRAMPS (ABO #162)



THE CRAMPS
PUSSYSPYIN':
THE BEST OF 1979-2003



Obviously, this compilation is just an introduction to the quirky/weird world of The Cramps. For their massive influence on the garage, punk, and rocka/psychobilly scene, the hard working force The Cramps have always been became an icon. Their live performances were of the explosive kind and if their urgent redefinition of classic rock'n'roll may seem a tad simplistic to some, it still is nothing short of essential.
Through the years, they've had commercial and judiciary ups and downs but remained artistically uncompromised, true to the gang of misfits that once roamed the club scene spilling blood, spit and attitude like no others did. Not only The Cramps were a terrific rock'n'roll assault group, they also perfectly personalized a certain sub/counter culture made of sex, 50s horror movies and good clean aggressivity. For all these reasons, and many more, they have gained a well deserved place in the History of "pop" (as in popular) music.
Now that Lux Interior has passed away, the adventure, that covered over three decades, is over. May the music stay... Forever.
