For Immediate Release:
February 4, 2009

Lux Interior, lead singer of The Cramps, passed away this morning due to an existing heart condition at Glendale Memorial Hospital in Glendale, California at 4:30 AM PST today. Lux has been an inspiration and influence to millions of artists and fans around the world. He and wife Poison Ivy's contributions with The Cramps have had an immeasurable impact on modern music.

The Cramps emerged from the original New York punk scene of CBGB and Max's Kansas City, with a singular sound and iconography. Their distinct take on rockabilly and surf along with their midnight movie imagery reminded us all just how exciting, dangerous, vital and sexy rock and roll should be and has spawned entire subcultures. Lux was a fearless frontman who transformed every stage he stepped on into a place of passion, abandon, and true freedom. He is a rare icon who will be missed dearly.

The family requests that you respect their privacy during this difficult time.

Everyone should go watch the live at the Napa State Metal Hospital video.

wow, what a slap in the face...
I was also at that Newport gig. I was pretty impressed when he ended up stark naked onstage at the end. Most people wouldn't go all the way with it like that.

As long as I live I will really never understand how a group of humans could get together and make a band as good as the Cramps. The Cramps were, like, perfect in every way.

If you can't dig them, then you can't dig nothin'.

for me, it was usa's night flight and their constant mid-80's running of "urgh! a music war" which when i first saw it in my teens was pretty cool, because it had joan jett, and that "cars" guy doing something way more weird than what i'd seen gary numan do before, and it had the gogo's and the police and devo and ohmyfuckinggod what is with that skinny guy with the mic shoved down his throat . . .



oh, wait, i get it, it's my new favorite band!!!

i swear to god, i must've went to mag's south (back when there were two magnolia's kids) the next week and bought that yellow "bad music" t-shirt and didn't take it off for at least 3 months!


yep, i owe my love of both the cramps and X to usa's night flight. 999 for that matter, too . . .

We must have all had inklings Lux wasn't long for this world. Earlier this week, I was talking about the Napa State video for the first time in years, Beatdown Ed wore a Cramps shirt to practice on Tuesday...plate of shrimp indeed.

This sucks.

Spliney and I salvaged a piece of the Newport stage from a Cramps show that Lux smashed out and then climbed into - mostly if not completely naked. It is signed by Lux and Poison Ivy and is now framed against velvet in Spliney's house.

Heavy losses.

I'm pretty sure that Newport show yr talking about is the one that my mom wouldn't let me go to. Only thing harder than getting yr mom to let you go see a band called the Cramps is to get her to let you go see a band called the Butthole Surfers. Thankfully, I did get to see the Cramps in 1997. It was the highlight of a bleak year spent living in Portland.

That Napa State video is a trip, especially those women who keep grabbing the mic and shrieking.

I'm at a loss for words at how much this sucks...

Now imagine Lux in that closet of a performance space they had at Crazy Mama's. That was the first time I saw them...the band made us wait for-freakin'-ever (supposedly because the band refused to go on til they got their noses packed full) and then just exploded once they took the stage.

If that Newport show is the one I remember, Lux's interior kept making an apperance because the wimmens kept pulling on those leather pants of his.

I'll just keep saying it...this really sucks. Our rock heroes rarely live healthy lifestyles, I guess.

Somebody told me you people are crazy, but I'm not so sure about that. You seem to be all right to me.

RIP

Saw them twice and they killed it both times. I was shocked that they were even more crazy at the show in 2004 then in 1998. I was thinking the other day how I hoped I would get the chance to see them play one more time. About to drink Absinthe and blast Songs the Lord Taught Us and PJ/GH.

yeah, i was really jonsin' to see them again, especially because their last bass player (europe tour) was sean yselt from white zombie, and her cramps-ripoff surfabilly band "famous monsters" were a fuckin' gas . . .

(plus, i have a ginormous crush on her. still.)

Shit! I just found out 10 minutes ago. Man, it seems like all the real personalities of rock are dying off fast. The Cramps rule forever.

I cant stop watching youtube videos of them either. I really like the one at the mental hospital. The grateful dead played prisons which is cool, but to play a mental hospital is even cooler.

Ummm... I realize that you are probably just a smelly, addle-brained hippy, but please NEVER EVER EVER mention the grateful dead in the same thread as The Cramps. That is just beyond disrespectful.
