Format: Audio CD
Ivy gives a demonstration of the flamejob sex beat. Acetylene torch ready to explode into electric sparks. Inside the covers she welds her Gretsch to the rhythm of Route 66 and we are off on another Cramps whizz down the highway. Dressed in black clinging PVC and sky high heels she kicks and sweats these tunes into contorted shapes their forebears would be loud and proud to observe. Stripped, primed and painted n licked, fit and ready for a 21st century blast.

Lux the conductor of mania, gets his tongue deep into Beelzebub's finest showtunes on the mike. His take of "Sinners" resurrects the dead with a wink to the wonky devil of possession. Trapped Love became less claustrophobic when Lux throttles and shakes its coffin lid, expanding the original by rattling its bones to bring out its sense of solitary confinement.

Ultra Twist introduces the new mania for swiveling on the twister mat into Karma Sutric contours that leads to a dripping need for another blast. Try jigging to this whilst going up and and then down on an object of desire for those who can twist whilst those who are too stiff to be a straight can do a solo strut.

After the match dissection, don't go for the cigarette. Listen to "How come you do me?" Not a complaint but a compliment.

In the first acknowledgement to the world outside his and hers self composed Rockarola universe, Lux takes a long swish bow before surrealists 21stC finest, dedicating Naked Girl Falling Down the Stair to those pioneers of mining the mind. Thereby making the first link between the bizzare mondo world of rockabilly/r'n b to a French art movement that shook the imagination. Yes mr and mrs art shlockers rockabilly is nearer to surrealism than your pressed fecal signed Jeff Koons dough balls!

classic stuff the addition of a bass player gave the cramps a heavier sound more like traditional rock music,but dont worry they are still at their whacky,weird and wonderfull best on flamejob.if your fed up with your record collection and are looking for something different the cramps could be your answer,start with off the bone and then flame job.

The first two-thirds of 'Flamejob' ranges from great-to-brilliant; the final third, though, sounds like rockabilly by numbers.

As with The Ramones, The Cramps' latterday records took on a more metallic tinge, and this album kicks off with two excellent stompers: 'Mean Machine' and 'Ultra Twist'. There's plenty of 'bonkers' on display too, with 'Let's Get F*d Up' and 'Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs' being particularly 'out there'.

So far, so goo-goo; or should that be gaga?! Anyway, it's when we reach 'Trapped Love' that they start to run out of steam; with 'Swing The Big Eyed Rabbit' being particularly duff, plus a cover of 'Route 66' which leaves you thinking 'why bother?'. The first nine tracks couldn't be anyone but The Cramps; the final six, though, would pass as The Stray Cats, or even Shaky!

I wouldn't recommend 'Flamejob' to anyone thinking of dipping their toes into the Cramps' back catalogue; get 'Songs The Lord Taught Us' or the excellent live 'Smell Of Female' instead.

Alright, it's not as good as Bad Music For Bad People or Psychedelic Jungle but the GooGooMuck Voodoo Idol Teenage Beast Human Fly Garbage Men still kick ass in a resoundingly cool way.
God! I miss the Cramps. The best band ever!!!

Wow! The floor toms, from a drummer's point of view, sounds brilliant. No one plays like this!! Slim bass playing with a touch of distortion, tremolo you're way out of this!! Well, they do. Recommended for guitar rock lovers..
