I was looking for more material for my endless Cramps discography and I ran across a nice-looking site in Italian. Since I don't speak the language, I ran it through one of those instant free translation websites, intending to go back and clean up the syntax and so forth. You know how wildly inexact those things can be. Well, I found it so amusing, I think I am just going to re-post the page as is rather than fixing it. Enjoy too much this you should my saying is.
It is possible that one of the groups that more they are gone out from the diagrams, between those that they continued the first wave punk, was follower of Elvis And of the music of the fifties? Uncovered and produced from that unacknowledged genius of Alex Chilton, The Cramps do immediately the bang with their first disk. A thin and deep music (and there is not the low one!), a difficult voice to define and an unforgettable series of songs. "TV set" seems gone out from a tribal party African, but is not the sole song to hit in the mark. Aside mine, known how much the original songs, signed Lux Interior/Poison Ivy, be better of the cover: "Strychnine" is attractive, but besides to lose clearly the comparison with it devastating version that will give of it the Fuzztones Some year more late, is not comparable to authentic masterpieces like "What' s behind the mask", it already cited "TV set" or "Sunglasses after dark". A masterpiece. Curiosity - Cover operates of the same Cramps.
