Lux Interior 1946-2009

There are bands that are influential and there are bands so seminal they seem to birth entire subcultures by themselves. I'm not going to insult anyone's intelligence by using the term "psychobilly," and I'll admit that after couple of brilliant records the law of diminishing returns set in, but any artist since who's harnessed the raw power of primal rock n roll and wedded it with punk irreverence owes the Cramps a debt of gratitude. Their singer, Lux Interior, passed away today.
