Lux Tributes This Week

It has been a year now since Lux Interior went to wherever a creature like that goes when the world becomes too small to contain him. The good part is, he left behind a lot of cool stuff for us to play with. We are sad that Lux has gone someplace where we can't see or hear him, but just imagine what it would have been like had we never had him at all. It was, indeed, a wonderful life. Lux reveled in it and gave it freely to us. He showed us how it could and should be done, and repeatedly proved the impossible.
Who would have thought he'd ever reach 60? And, once he did, who would have thought he could ever die?
Lux, wherever you are right now, I know you aren't resting in peace, for that was not your way. I hope you are someplace loud and sweaty, with an eternal stage for you to bleed on and an endless supply of microphones to swallow. May you stay sick, get fucked up , and blow up your mind forever in some beautiful garden where the natives are always restless. I wonder what new kind of kick you have found behind that green door.
So, no RIP for you, my friend. Rather, I will just say "well done," and thanks for letting us share it. with you.


KOGAR THE SWINGING APE has announced that there will be a Lux Interior tribute radio show on Thursday, Feb 4th from 11pm to 1am. It will air on WRIR-LP 97.3 FM, Richmond Independent Radio, with Slickee Boys drummer, Dacoit Dan.

Kogar says, "You can listen live on the net, or download the show later when its available on their website...Dan was kind enough to let me pick most of the songs for the show. It'll be a mix of Cramps tunes and Lux and Ivy favorites with interview bits, and movie trailers, and more."

Here's Dan's page at the WRIR website:

Later this week, Kogar plans to post the remastered version of "Lux and Ivy's Favorites volume 12," the Lux Interior Memorial edition, with a few mp3 tweaks and a new cover.
