It’s easy for us to say that The Cramps are one of the most influential punk bands of all time. The husband and wife duo of singer Lux Interior and lead guitarist Poison Ivy were horror enthusiasts who could have been horror hosts had they not been so talented – er – musically talented. Their songs were primarily about cult movies, monsters, sex, fashion and horror hosts — specifically Ohio hosts such as Ghoulardi and The Mad Daddy.
Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!
Punk Rock is an expression of rebellion and DIY attitude and we feel it is a value for those in the horror host scene to embrace a similar spirit. We at Horror Hosts and Creature Features salute The Cramps in this installment of Creepy Crafters! We hope it inspires you to make things, break things and support those who make things and break things!
