The Cramps

I missed posting about this when it happened but thought I'd post something now. Lux Interior, founder of the band the Cramps, died on Feb 4. He was 62. He started life as Erick Purkhiser. He met his future wife while she was hitchhiking in California. She changed her name from Kristy Wallace to Poison Ivy and they formed the band the Cramps. They moved from there to Ohio and than to New York City where they were part of the beginning of punk music. They called their music pyshcobilly.
