5.0 out of 5 stars Gretsch n bass in luxurious design 7 April 2010
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The cultural dead are resurrrected and given the kiss of life by Lux and Ivy. Hard Working Man is Beafheart manpower, shirt tied round the waist, blue jeans thrusting, packed socks in the groin with the ripple of the muscle in the sweat of the day.

Miniskirt Blues unites two outre icons duetting philosophical tips on the leg curves from thigh to ankle and speculate on the joys of what lies above. Hipsville sees them maniacilly shaking to an early 60's beat. Cramps go groovy baby.

Home grown tracks celebrate various acts, positions and attitudes of ecsatatic bliss; Bend over I'll Drive screams Lux after one too little. Dames, Booze, Chains and Boots celebrates American masculinity 50's style, the existential outsider on a ride to venus. I wanna get in your pants; double entendre delivering a tumble on the dancefloor in an exchange to cross dress or simply an offer to derobe and exchange conjugal bliss. "Don't get funny with me" he screeches before noting someone has dropped an eyeball in his Martini.

The music is deft, fast, furious and purient. The 50's celebrated the release of the sex drive and Lux reworks it for the 21st C. Celebrated in Europe, the Cramps had a slow impact on the vast stretches from New York State to Nebraska.

Whilst men in black with pointy beards hailed the anti-christ in righteous fervour. The Cramps took the essence of hooven one to mean liberation; the archetypal European insoucience from the sanctity of original sin. Religion begone and enjoy your damnation.

Fun is encoded and DNA'd within the retro slabs of Gretsch n bass. Remember these sounds fought hard to turn back the massed hordes of pillowcase wearers from swamping the world with their brand of moral righteousness. Fun is lways a block away from being a hard fought right to strut the world in PVC, leather, mascara and paint the world in lurid tones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Bunch 2 April 2007
By Cool Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm telling you the Cramps give you a kick in the pants with this album. They don't only kick you they murder you with a machete! This album is everything great about rock n' roll raw, raunchy, hard, fast and wet, kind of like sex. They mix all the alchemical musical elements in: Rockabilly, Surf, Garage punk, nose pin punk and a heavy dose of hard rock. Bam! The thing in the lab explodes killing everybody in sight! There is not one bad song in this album from start to finish. Of course they use stuff of different songs in the past like making a collage out of your favorite comics and magazines. For instance they use the back drop of a great surf instrumental called "Margaya" by the Fender Four for a insane Lux ramble about the joys of being a hedonist on the song "Wilder Wilder Faster Faster", they redo the awesome blue collar ode song originally by Captain Beefheart "Hardworking Man" its a low down bluesy song they do to devastating effect, another is "Miniskirt Blues" a rockin' garage 60's sleazoid musical bit by The Flower Chldren they do it Cramps style with a harder rocking beat and its a duet with who else but the king of Garage rock himself Iggy Pop! Iggy and Lux sound like demonic twin brothers. They also do "Hipsville 29 BC" a song by the Sparkles it is a insane moaning 60's snot punk anthem that the Cramps own and make their own before the song ends. Then there is the great "Strangeness in Me" by the unknown Rockabilly group the Runabouts. The original is errie and it seems like something a serial killer would sing to his victim before decapitating the person. The Cramps don't mess with this song they keep it the way it was recorded, Lux even sounds like the messed up hillbilly singing the original.

There is alot of their own originals and they are all damn good! "Dames, Booze, Chains and Boots" starts off the album with a rip snorting bonfire. This track just kicks. Then it goes onward. "I Wanna Get in your Pants" is great. The song sounds as if its a sap 50's love song sang by Lux, double entendres in this song make it sound like Lux wants to indulge his inner transvestite and put on his girlfriend's pants and clothes. Yet it sounds like he literally wants in her pants! Only the Cramps could pull that one off. My personal favorite is "Eyeball in a Martini" the song being about a guy who sees eyeballs all over the place. Ivy plays a cool little surf riff in this song the best line being "Went to Lover's Lane to scan for UFO's /You Just imagine what I saw when I pulled down her pantyhose."

This is my favorite Cramps album and thats saying alot. They put out consistently good stuff all the time. For my money this is the best. Its a damn shame that their stuff now seems to be out of print. Shouldn't happen to a band of this influence and caliber. It seems in these times that all the good bands get shafted. So if you see this at all buy it you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars VOODOO ROCKABILLY RULES!!!! 28 Oct 2001
By Scott T Mc Nally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Cramps have been around for over 20 years. Are they punk? Well, yes and no. With song titles like "Two Headed Sex Change" and "Bend Over, I'll Drive", what they are is a weird hybrid of punk, rockabilly and a dash of Screamin Jay Hawkins Voodoo and sexual inuendo. Their songs are often very funny. They can also be rude and vulgar, but not too much so. On "Look Mom, No Head" you get a good picture of the band led by lead singer Lux Interior, and female guitarist Poison Ivy. For me, "Dames, Booze, Chains and Boots" is worth the price of admission alone. Interior's vocal delivery is hysterical there. The Cramps are also a very tightly wound band. My introduction to them was a concert. They are really good musicians, whereas most of todays punk acts can't go beyond two or three chords.
With all the much more serious music I listen to, it's nice to have such a guilty pleasure as The Cramps in my collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cramps - 'Look, Mom No Head' (Restless Records) 30 Jan 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Looks to be The Cramp's ninth 'proper' release. Certainly not their best work, but it'll do,very much so. Tunes here are very decent, regardless like the rather demented "Two Headed Sex Change", the uptempo "Alligator Stomp", "I Wanna Get In Your Pants", "Eyeball In My Martini" and "Hipsville 29 B.C.". If you're an old school Cramps fan, you shouldn't be disappointed with, 'Look, Mom No Head', it simply isn't likely to change your life. Check out the disc's closer, "Wilder Wilder, Faster Faster" - about as psycho-billy as ANYONE can muster up. Plus, on "Miniskirt Blues", Iggy Pop duets with Lux. Wow! Line-up, here: Lux Interior - vocals, Poison Ivy - guitar, Slim Chance - bass and Jim Sclavunos - drums. Not a bad CD to have in your stash.

Great music from some of the craziest kooks in rock! "I Wanna Get In Your Pants" is vintage Cramps humor and the cut with Iggy Stooge/Pop is priceless.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Best CD by One of My Favorite Bands 26 May 2013

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Cramps are one of my favorite bands, and there probably isn't anything by them that I haven't heard in the 20+ years that I've been a fan. In my opinion, Look Mom No Head is their best CD. In fact, this is one of my favorite CDs by anybody.
