What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Cramps for Halloween

Psychotic rockabilly from one of my favorite psychotic rockabilly bands.   Just perfect for Halloween.    This band had a very unique sound and they stuck to it and kept it fresh at the same time.    Much like the Ramones, they didn't deviate from their basic sound over the life of their career. 

After a couple of indie singles, they were signed to IRS.   There was a bit of a snit between the band and the label after the second album which resulted in sporadic recordings for a spell.   For a while , those in the band's adopted hometown of Los Angeles had to get their third album, 'A Date With Elvis,' imported from France.  

For Halloween, I offer up a single with a monster picture sleeve. 

I Ain't Nuthin But a Gorehound b/w Weekend on Mars

The single is taken from their live EP  'The Smell of Female.'   The B-Side does not appear on the EP.
