Cramped !

Page 1



The main reason why the Cramps early got a cult band status, as soon as they began touring & released their first recordings, is that they entirely symbolize REAL r’n’r. According to Lux & Ivy, r’n’r music means antique or swamp blues, sparkling ballads, classy doo wop, wild r’n’b, primitive rockabilly, rough surf, raw 60’s garage or haunted exotica... EVERYTHING in r’n’r does the groundwork for the Cramps own world: wild live shows, sexy records sleeves, hot rods, pin-ups, 50’s horror, sci-fi & juvenile delinquents movies & comics... Their whole life is a sincere tribute to the Pionners: local radio broadcastings DJs, legendary record companies & forgotten artists. “Cramped!” is a sincere tribute to this life.
