Lux Interior. 1946-2009

Lux Interior, the man who invented Psychobilly, died yesterday from a heart condition. Creator and frontman of The Cramps, Lux was often described as a twisted version of Elvis. Those who like The Cramps get it, those who don't, think it's garbage. I think they were genius pioneers in fusing genres and their contribution to punk/indie music was tremendous. See for yourself.
