The Cramps were a filthy, perverse, deranged, and brainlessly brilliant band of rock `n' roll zombie punks. Their music was a raw, rude, and ruckus-raising celebration of rock `n' roll at its most heroically gruesome, an unholy combination of backwoods hell bound rockabilly and snarling punk rock. It's a greasy, apocalyptic screech, a stomach-rupturing good time that sounds like nothing else you've ever heard. It's friggin' jeen-ee-us!
Released in 1980, Songs The Lord Taught Us is the group's rip-roaring, feedback `n' eco soaked debut, and good golly what a record it is! "T.V. Set" is pure Hasil Adkins-afflicted psychosis, while the "Garbageman" Is an apocalyptic hillbilly-metal blaster masterpiece. "Rock On The Moon" is a quadruple-time explosion that threatens to rip the moon in half, while "Zombie Dance" is cool enough to wake the dead. "Sunglasses After Dark" is furious, "What's Behind The Mask" is hilarious, and their rendition of "Fever" is the sound of corpses gettin' it on. They've even got a version of the 60s garage rock classic "Strychnine," and a barnstorming semi-group-anthem entitled "I'm Cramped." Classic!
