The Cramps live at New York's Club 57 on August 18th, 1979. These larger than life figures graced the stage of New York's legendary Club 57, standing on the brink of a wider stage, namely the world. The Cramps quickly became one of America's finest subculture manifestations, bred from the madness of '50s and '60s B-movie trash at the turn of punk, Lux Interior and his motley crew of proto-gothic punks tear off heads with a slew of Dick Dale and Sonics salutes amidst sordid contortions. Above all, The Cramps were a live band, a cabaret of B-movie histrionics and debonair, pursuing a lurid sexual gratification. Lux Interior in particular, personified, and externalized what lurked behind the snarl of every rockabilly hero.
