Lux InteriorFebruary 6, 2009
It doesn’t matter to me that Lux Interior was married to a woman, the surf-sex pot Poison Ivy in the Cramps. His constant gender bending attire, complete with raunchy songs made Lux a queer in my book. Making rockabilly accessible to punk and vice versa, The Cramps’ early catalogue is a great example of that rebellious essence that is missing from most things today. I won’t bore you with my own memories and original vinyl stories; there is a lot of internets about Lux out there right now. Even Tobi Vail, via here Kill Rock Stars email list, waxed nostalgic about his passing. Get cramped if you haven’t ever.
