Don't Eat Stuff Off the Sidewalk..!

A sad day indeed.

Lux Interior, lead singer for The Cramps, has gone to the Black Leather Lagoon in the sky.

While I've never been the band's biggest fan, I did so enjoy a lot of their songs. Songs such as Bikini Girls with Machine Guns, Don't Eat Stuff Off the Sidewalk, and Shortnin' Bread always lifted me out of whatever funk I was in. They also did a great cover (better than the Ramones!) of the Trashmen's Surfin' Bird that always got me goin'.

We'll miss you, Lux.

Sigh.

"Don't Eat Stuff On the Sidewalk".... LOL...

That title reminds me of this song... Petula Clark's 1968 "Don't Sleep In the Subway, Darlin'"...

Always a classic!
