02-07-09 Lux Interior Memorial Show

As you may or may not know, Lux Interior, charismatic lead singer of rockabilly giants The Cramps passed away this Wednesday, February 4, 2009 of an existing heart condition. He was 62. As a tribute to a great man who will be greatly missed, I tried my best to emulate what Interior himself had done with his own Purple Knif Show, aping the horror host style and playing the bands that influenced him. Without The Cramps, I never would've heard of many of these enjoyable tracks. Here's to you, Lux.
