The Cramps: Rock And Roll Monster Bash (LP)

(Ill Eagle Records) 18 tracks - Recorded at 'The Edge', in Toronto , July 18th, 1980

One of the most beloved and highly prized bootleg LPs by fans, Rock 'n' Roll Monster Bash captured THE CRAMPS at a crossroads: founder member and iconic guitar-slinger Bryan Gregory had just walked out on the band at the height of their initial success. In order to fulfill their live commitments, the band drafted in guitarist, Julien Hechtlinger from NYC shock-punkers, The Mad. Under the nom-de-Cramp .Tulien H (or Griensnatch), the young guitarist played a handful of shows with the band from July to September 1980, including their infamous show at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium captured in Urgh! A Music War... and, of course the legendary show contained on this record from .Tuly 18 1980 at The Edge, Toronto. After parting ways with Julien in September 1980, THE CRAMPS relocated to Los Angeles where they hooked up with Kid Congo Powers and entered their imperial phase as the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world.

The original Monster Bash bootleg surfaced in the early '80s on Turn Blue Records either with a full printed sleeve or white sleeve with A3 wraparound photocopied art and featured 6 songs from the band's first set at The Edge and 7 from their second. Although the recording used on the bootleg was from Toronto in 1980, the actual Rock 'n' Roll Monster Bash, from which the classic poster art used on the record's sleeve was derived, took place two years earlier at Hurrah, NYC on 28 October 1978.
For this deluxe reissue, Ill Eagle Records have sourced complete soundboard tapes of both sets. In addition to offering 5 additional songs, the sound quality is vastly superior to the original LP. However, in the interests of providing a complete document within the time parameters of a vinyl record, the order of the night's first set has been slightly altered and some instances of crowd noise and (regretably) some of Lux's stage banter has been edited. Purists will find the unexpurgated recording on Ill Eagle Record's CD release. As the poster artwork from the earlier show has now become synonymous with the recording from Toronto, the poster included with this deluxe edition has been slightly modified to represent this venue and date of recording.

The Cramps 

The Cramps war eine US-amerikanische Rock'n'Roll Band, die von ihrem Gründungsjahr 1976 bis zum Tod von Sänger Erick Purkhiser alias Lux Interior 2009 aktiv war. Sie kreierten einen eigenwilligen Sound aus Rockabilly, 50s Rock'n'Roll, 60s Garagen Trash und Punk Rock - gemeinhin auch als Punkabilly bezeichnet. Neben Lux Interior blieb seine Ehefrau und Gitarristin Kristy Wallace, alias Poison Ivy, das einzige Bandmitglied, das der Gruppe permanent angehörte.

Kult

Bereits in den späten 1970er Jahre avancierten The Cramps mit ihrem Sound zu einer Kult-Band als Teil der frühen New Yorker Punk Szene um das CBGB. Ihr Kult-Status bis heute ungebrochen ist und sie üben ungeheuren Einfluss auf Musikstile, wie Psychobilly und Horror Punk aus. Die Songtext-Ideen bezogen sie zumeist aus Comics, Groschenromanen und Horror-, Science Fiction- und Sex-B-Movies.

Besetzung und Sound

Neben Lux Interior und Poison Ivy als ständige Basis-Mitglieder, haben in wechselnder Besetzung eine Schar illustrer Musiker bei den Cramps gespielt: Gleich zu Beginn saß Miriam Linna am Schlagzeug, die später mit Billy Miller The Zantees und das Norton Records Label gründete. Langjähriger Schlagzeuger wurde dann Nick Knox. Brian 'Kid Congo Powers' Tristan spielte 1983 die zweite Gitarre, bis er wieder zu seiner eigentlichen Band, The Gun Club, zurückkehrte. Ab Anfang 90er Jahre begann die Band mit dem Bassisten Slim Chance zu spielen. Bis dato hatten sie gänzlich auf den Bass verzichtet. Das gab der Band zusätzlichen Schub im Gesamtklang. The Cramps produzierten sich zumeist selber, jedoch wurden vereinzelte Alben von Richard Robinson (The Flamin' Groovies) in New York und von Alex Chilton in Memphis produziert.
