    This record was my true introduction to the twisted world of Lux and Ivy. Boy I wore that sucker out!

    The Cramps Flamejob on Numbered Limited Edition Colored LP

    The Cramps career has been the stuff of legend. Dangerously bizarre but most of all cool, The Cramps represent everything that is truly reprehensible about rock’n’roll. Founding members Lux Interior (the psycho-sexual Elvis/Werewolf hybrid from hell) and guitar-slinging soul-mate Poison Ivy (the ultimate bad girl vixen) are the architects of a wicked sound that distills a cross of swamp water, moonshine and nitro down to a dangerous and unstable musical substance.

    Their cultural impact has spawned a legion of devil cults and dance-floor catfights, and created in its wake a cavalcade of cave-stomping imitators. As punk rock pioneers in the late '70s, they cut their teeth on the stages of CBGB and Max’s Kansas City and recorded their first record at Sam Phillips legendary Sun Studios, funded mainly by Ivy’s income as a dominatrix in NYC. They coined the now popular term “psychobilly” on their 1976 gig posters. Their hair-raising live performances were total, no-holds-barred rock’n’roll assaults and total mayhem.

    "Alan McGee may have had bigger fish to fry in 1994 (namely the era-defining debut of five scallies from Burnage), but that didn't stop him investing well-spent time and money on this, The Cramps' sixth album proper. A good job, too, since Flamejob is a blast; its tunes every bit as colourful as their preposterous titles (eg; "Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs"). If anything, it sounds even more current today, with The White Stripes reigning supreme, than it did 10 years ago in the shadow of their mono-browed labelmates." - Uncut

    This first vinyl pressing of the The Cramps Flamejob since its original pressing in 1994 has been remastered by Masterdiskand comes on numbered limited edition colored LP of 1,500 copies and is housed in a heavyweight vinyl jacket foil-numbered in silver. Also available on numbered limited edition 200g vinyl.

    My least favorite Cramps record. I might buy it anyway.

    It's not a great album, though it has its moments. I already have it on coloured vinyl, though, as well as the Nake Girl Falling Down the Stairs and Ultra Twist singles (also coloured vinyl), so I'll pass on this. Odd choice of an album to present in a limited edition.

    I like it quite a bit. It's one of their most consistent lps, from first to last track. They should include a 45 of 'Blues Fix' with it. Who's releasing this anyhow?
