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 shred the walls of Keystone's Palo Alto with a toxic stew of sexed up rock 'n' roll.

They were an exotic cabaret of b-movie histrionics and debonair, pursuing lurid and sexual gratification. Lux Interior personified, and externalized what lurked behind the snarl of every rockabilly hero and even in death, wears it well. In Elvis' strut, in James Dean's wince, somewhere in the back of Little Richard's throat was the Cramps' drooling all over your face and walking away with your soul.

Interference proudly presents the entire KFAT-FM broadcast of this legendary early performance by The Cramps live at Keystone's Palo Alto from February 1979. Captured in their grizzly, diabolical prime and before the release of their debut Songs The Lord Taught Us.

Professionally re-mastered with background liners and superb rare archival photos.
