Off the Bone

The Cramps

Off the Bone

This fiery set collects tunes from The Cramps’ glory years (1978–83) and rocks hard with horror-flick surf guitars, swamp-voodoo rhythms, and singer Lux Interior’s trashy hiccups and howls. Vintage tunes by rockabilly heroes like Jack Scott, Hasil Adkins, and Sam Phillips get killer, camped-up makeovers, while several equally potent band originals (especially “Human Fly” and “Garbageman”) swerve wildly between ear-bending psych and freakout psychobilly. Even Big Star’s Alex Chilton provides some rapturously unhinged direction here, producing 10 of the album’s songs.
