The Cramps – live at CBGB – August 1979 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection

Slight change of pace tonight – early Punk/Psychobilly via The Cramps, live from CBGB in New York on August of 1979. This radio broadcast features an extended excerpt of their club date (clocking in at just under 12 1/2 minutes), and one of the big reasons why The Cramps were one of the most influential bands from the Punk era, migrating out of San Francisco.

With numerous personnel changes over the years, The Cramps stayed in business until the death of lead singer and co-founder Lux Interior in 2009, after which they split, leaving behind a legacy of 70s Punk still being listened to and influencing bands to this day.

If you missed them the first time around – you should most definitely check this one out. Those of you who aren’t new to the band, here’s a reminder what they were up to early-on in their careers.

I dare you to fall asleep during this one . .
