I didn't plan to post two music clips in a row, but propriety dictates that I pay tribute to the Legendary Punk Elvis/Werewolf hybrid, Lux Interior.
Yeah, the Cramps were psychobilly/punk primitives, but with custom styling and real cordoba leatherette padded seating for your personal comfort in the obnoxious day glo color of your choice.
This video of their performance of the piece, Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs, kind of sums it all up. Sex, violence, custom padded vinyl accessories added up to a unique style with a rockabilly beat with Lux's wife, the untouchable Poison Ivy on lead guitar.
Another great American original disappears, Lux died today of heart failure at age 60 leaving the music world a much more generic, safer place.
