R.I.P. Lux Interior

Lux Interior (real name: Erick Purkhiser), who fronted the rockabilly/garage/punk act The Cramps, died yesterday at the age of 60 or 62, depending upon which story you read.

No hathos here, just a weird scene: In 1978, The Cramps gave a free concert at the California State Mental Hospital in Napa.  Here’s some footage from the resulting “Live at Napa State Mental Hospital” video.
