Most of the tracks clocking just beneath the 3 minutes and the album contains multiple covers. The most famous one of them is “Route 66”, which is infused with the famous Cramps sound.

      Ambience: 63 Nuggets From The Cramps' Record Vault

        A double CD exhumed from Lux And Ivy’s record collection. Featuring 63 tunes that scared the neighbours. Including wild doo-wop, insane instrumentals, novelty laughter, loungecore weirdness, jiggling fools, wolf men, Tarzan, accordions and enough raucous rockabilly to scare a horse. No hit wonders that fetch maximum dollars in their original vinyl incarnation gathered in one place where the house party never stopped and Elvis never died. Selected from The Cramps’ gargantuan record collection, radio shows and interviews over the years, it’s a hi-octane romp through the best in obscure and “magnificent” wax from the greatest period of American music. From a time when vinyl was gold! Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine’s Dave Henderson.

        The Incredibly Strange Music Box - 60 Songs From The Cramps' Crazy Collection

        A veritable cornucopia of 60 tunes as spun by Lux Interior on his radio shows or lurking within his and Poison Ivy’s collection.

        From cool instrumentals and rockabilly weirdness through to female rock ‘n’ rollers, devotees of voodoo and all round devil worship and purveyors of the newest dance trends.

        With more than a hint of esoteric exotica, with added jungle sound effects, tributes to Tarzan, dragsters and rabbits and a host of dazed and confused survivors to boot.

        Rampant with riffs, overflowing with deranged ideas and sullen sideswipes on the soap opera of life.

        Complete with hip jive from ‘Ginchy’ to ‘Gumbo’, an aural extravaganza that’s relentlessly groovy!

          Big Beat From Badsville

            As the Cramps approached their 20th anniversary, they showed no signs of changing their signature kitschy psychobilly style. 'Big Beat From Badsville' is a collection of campy songs about sex, horror, violence, leather and perversion - well what else did you expect?! Sonically, it's slightly rawer than it's predecessor, Flamejob, and the group's performances are as inspired here as they are on any of their other '90s albums.

              29 classic cuts as enthused over by The Cramps mainstays on the radio and in a host of interviews. Including surfing wipe outs, wild man rockabilly, crazed jungle misfits, honking saxophone and an attention to fashion sense. Deranged arrangements, dysfunctional lyrics and near the knuckle storylines of wild romance and wilder nights out with some swinging beats.

              The Cramps

              Rockinnreelininaucklandnewzealandxxx

                On August 30, 1986, The Cramps played the final night of their 'Date With Elvis' World Tour. The venue was The Galaxy in Auckland, New Zealand. Sleazing it up live, the band rated this their best gig of the whole tour (and it had been a great tour!). After the gig, the sound engineer gave the band a tape he had run off during the concert. Back at their hotel, The Cramps were amazed to discover that the recording was, unusually for these things, of almost studio quality. For a band that had been heavily bootlegged at live gigs, it gave The Cramps the chance to challenge the shoddy sound of the pirate recordings by putting out a top quality official bootleg album of their own. A deal was sorted out with Big Beat's Roger Armstrong and a one drop pressing arranged. There were no promos and the album was never advertised but the pressing of 40,000 copies sold out immediately. The original vinyl album came out on Vengeance, which, in the early days, had been The Cramps label for their first 2 singles. This version of The Cramps (with Lux Interior, Ivy Rorschach, Candy del Mar and Nick Knox) was one of the best and "Rockinnreelininaucklandnewzealandxxx" once again, offers the opportunity to catch one of rock music's greatest bands in scorching form.
