 In 2016 I wrote my biography on the embryonic years of Primal Scream from 1984-87. In December 2018 I got an almighty compulsion to write my own personal fan-boy book, about thee greatest rock n roll band on the planet-The Cramps. From tearing it up in 1979 at The Glasgow Apollo to catching their last ever UK gig at London Astoria in 2006, it’s been one helluva adventure to Crampsville and back. If you wanna bust loose to some red-hot rockabilly, fuzz out to ass-shakin garage nuggets with a healthy dose of 70s punk attitude-The Cramps are for your stay sick pleasure! Where else are you gonna find such beautiful monsters as Lux Interior-PoisonIvy-Bryan Gregory-Nick Knox and Kid Congo? And if these songs don’t grab you: ‘Garbageman’ ‘New Kind Of Kick’ ‘Human Fly’or ‘Drug Train’-You’re already dead…
