Cramps R.I.P.

Lux Interior, dead at 62.

Pitchfork has the news and great video links

The Cramps were Ramones-like in their ability to be incredibly influential, potent and yet somehow hang in the background of things.

Put their stuff in a mixtape or playlist and it jumps out in vitality and humor everytime. We need more Cramps in our lives.

Update: interview (Real Audio link) from an old radio archive with Lux and Ivy.
