RIP Lux Interior

The Cramps lead singer Lux Interior dies

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Lux Interior, the singer and founding member of psychobilly rock band "The Cramps," has died from a heart condition at the age of 60, his spokesman said Thursday quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

The singer, whose real name was Erick Lee Purkhiser, died in Glendale Hospital outside Los Angeles, the daily reported.

The band was formed in 1976 in Sacramento by Lux Interior and his wife Kristina Marlana Wallace, alias "Poison Ivy," who was the band's guitarist and bassist.

Both were members of the famous avant-garde New York club the CBGB, and drew inspiration from horror movies and B-thrillers for their songs such as "Bikini girls with machine guns" and "I was a teenage werewolf."

They appeared with The Clash on their US tour in 1979 and then The Police in 1980, and then toured with success throughout the 1980s. (Naked Girl falling down the stairs) (Bikini Girls with Machine Guns)

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so. Robert A. Heinlein
