Lux Interior - Rest in Peace

This is kind of late post but I can't ignore the passing of one of my heroes. Lux Interior lived and breathed rock n' roll. During the early to mid 70's, while everybody's going the punk way, the Cramps went the other way. The most punk rock thing to do. They opened the door to future "stars" like Stray Cats and Pussy Galore. They also brought to my attention the musicians that should have been "lost & forgotten". Bands like the Novas, the Sonics... I could have passed these bands by if not for the Cramps.

I can still remember the first Cramps song I heard, "This one's dedicated to all you Gucci bag carriers out there, it's called You Got Good Taste." Damn, I haven't heard that song for some twenty plus years but the it's still in my head as if I just played it a minute ago.

Anyways, this one's for you Lux!
