By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 April 2010
Format: Audio CD
From the opening bars Ivy's fingers dance across the fretboard, the guitar cavorts and extends to her nimble digits, spitting out its melody. She strums the power chords in blocks of raw elemental fire. Stroking the rhythm out of the metal and wood she then entices a slow soft murmur of a beat. The devil is behind the bush, just move aside the tail and carefully enter. Eyes glistening, mouth salivating with fiery lips just waiting to be entertained and thrilled. When she lets you in, just remember she may never let you get out.

Lux luxuriates in double entendres creating the metaphysical caresses of a 20th C John Donne paying homage to the curvaceous shapes, wet pouting lips, lithe smooth thighs, DD cups and long shining (black, blonde, red, pink,) hair of women. There is so much to say, no wonder he has devoted his career to it.

Bad gals of all senses are paraded as icons of sobrierty in a mad, bad post fem Crampain world. They carry blades, swing axes, chew gum and pick their men. All this whilst dancing to the beat of their inner rhythms allowing men to watch to assist their pleasure.

Lux hiccups to a Charlie Feathers beat as theremins/early synth slide in and out as he describes his Andre Breton experience of a wet nightmare. The lyrics intone the primal goddess either as a gothic princess, the Queen of Pain, the Devil behind that Bush or Burn She Devil. The lustful zip monster comes alive in God monster and It thing hard on. The powerful lustful man come to drink his fill.

The point of it all you ask. There was a time before Europe was christianised, life was one big pagan festival. No one felt guilty for nakedness, drinking, fun, painting yourself up displaying allure or sexual activity. Work was for existence not as a means for existence.

Life was short but it was far far sweeter.

The cramps do it again with this album. They infuse some good old psycho-billy rock 'n' roll with a swirl of camp B-movie sickness and a dash of mayhem. Light the blue touch paper and stand back! This is a great album and you'll find a no more energetic listen anywhere else. Favourite track has got to be 'Queen of pain' with its sultry camp sexiness. As an album it may not be mind blowingly new, but it sure as hell is good!!! Buy it and have fun.

This album is always a showstopper. Whenever I play it people ask wich band it is. The tracks "Like a bad girl should" and "Queen of pain" are pure genius. Music snobs and pop fans seem to be equally enthralled by this band. I have always considered Queen of pain to be my personal themesong:P I absolutely love the attitude and the dirty sound of The cramps:) Do you like rock, rockabilly or just vintage sleaze, then buy this album! You will not be disappointed:)

I got the BUG! 20 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The BUG is back again! This is the best Cramps album since 1985's A Date With Elvis! Usually the Cramps put most of their best songs up front, so the album kinda runs out of gas. But this one comes back and pimp slaps you upside the head all over again! Loaded with great songs... I mean don't you want to know what Lux considers a "Wet Nightmare"? I only wish he'd come out with a lingerie line for men so I could look as sharp as him when I'm vacuuming the apartment. If you've felt somewhat let down by the last few, this one will reaffirm your faith in the almighty power of The Cramps, the funnest band on earth. Just put this one in your Discman and try walking normal.

Cramped out 5 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm convinced that the Cramps are undead -- they really don't age, and they claw themselves out of the grave every couple of years to release another weird album. This album is pretty much the same as their previous few -- very good in places, but uneven. About half the songs are good, but the other half sound tired and wasted. The Cramps were a little better when they sang more monster songs and strange covers and less deviant sex songs, but nevertheless they can still be witty and entertaining. "It Thing Hard On", "Like a Bad Girl Should", and "Wet Nightmare" are funny enough tunes to justify buying this record if you're a Cramps fan and want to keep your collection complete. However, if you're just getting into it you might want to buy some of their earlier stuff before trying this.

Cramps - 'Big Beat From Badsville' (Epitaph) 30 Jan. 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looks like 'Big Beat From Badsville' is the Cramp's tenth album, for it's very similar to it's predecessor 'Flamejob'. I've always liked this band for several reasons. What the new / old fan gets here is timeless psycho-billy from a punk ensemble that first showed it's ugly face during the new wave music era, being the late '70's. One thing about the Cramps is,they change very little. Which in this case is a good thing.Tunes here I liked best were the in-your-face opener "Cramp Stomp", "Sheena's In A Goth Gang", "Queen Of Pain", "Super Goo" and "Wet Nightmare". The tracks here seem to refer to subjects like violence, leather straps, old horror flicks and rough sex, as usual. Couldn't speak for anyone else, but I have no complaints here. A very decent CD.

Badsville reconsidered.... 17 Feb. 2009
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After Lux Interior passed away on 2/4/09 I pulled this one out because it was the only Cramps CD I owned - I had everything else on vinyl or cassette, and my car only plays CD's. I'd only given it a listen or two when it came out - although I'd been a Cramps fiend since Gravest Hits, I thought that BBFB wasn't worthy - that it could have been recorded by any hard-rock band. Well, after ten or so consecutive listens this time around, I love this disc! True, it's not as good as their early stuff (what could be?), but if these songs with this level of musicianship were recorded by anybody else, this CD without a doubt would be considered the apex of their career. Lux's lyrics have never been funnier or more clever, but the hero as always is Ivy Rorschach and her incredibly great guitar playing - nothing else can bring a smile to my face like her sound. After she recovers from Lux's death, I fervently hope she will resume her playing career - she's just too good to quit making music.

The Cramps have done it again 12 Jun. 2006
By Cool Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Cramps have crafted another sleazy masterpiece of the sounds their best at straight ahead scuzz 60's garage rock, mixed with asnine psychedelia, and sleazy down dirty southern Rockabilly. There is a smattering of B movie horror. The Cramps are a cheap band and proud of it. They stand out of the crowd prefectly. Most bands are mediocre copies of each other (Think of all the Blink 182 and Thrice copy bands I'd like to see lose their undeserved popularity sorry for the tirade) this CD proves they are above the masses. Some of the songs they perform are derivative of older songs the Cramps have heard. If you want the originals of most of the songs they draw inspriation from order "Songs the Cramps Taught Us" if you are a fan of the Cramps I can't suggest these CDs any stronger their perfect. You will not be disappointed all the songs on these CDs are the choicest cuts of raw garage, Rockabilly, and Surf. There is songs on these CD's I had a hard time finding. The out right filthy song by Carl Perkins "Her Love Rubbed Off" and the Rockabilly ode to speed pills that fueled early Rockabilly by Macy Skip Skipper "Bop Pills". I was sad to see that Amazon didn't carry these CDs but you can get these off of Crypt Records. That aside if your a begginner of Cramps get this CD or anything else they put out. If you like it get the rest then get the CDs mentioned above.
