Lux Imitates Art Imitating Lux Imitating Other Art

(Above) "Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2" (1912) by Marcel Duchamp

Marcel Duchamp
was a French/American artist whose work is most often associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. Duchamp's output influenced the development of post-World War I Western art. He advised modern art collectors, such as Peggy Guggenheim and other prominent figures, thereby helping to shape the tastes of Western art during this period.[1] A playful man, Duchamp challenged conventional thought about artistic processes and art marketing, not so much by writing, but through subversive actions such as dubbing a urinal art and naming it Fountain. He produced relatively few artworks, while moving quickly through the avant-garde circles of his time.

Duchamp once said, "The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act."
(Wikipedia)

"Lux is really into Duchamp. He has read every biography and autobiography written. I think if Duchamp hadn’t died in Lux’s lifetime, I’d think that Lux was reincarnated as Duchamp."
--Poison Ivy, 1995

Back

For reasons which must remain lame and unprovable, I haven't posted anything on here in quite a while. The rumors of my death were not exaggerated in the least, but I couldn't let that hold me back forever. A few pressing matters did come up. There was a death in my family, for one thing. In fact, since I subscribe to the philosophy of the universal brotherhood of all mankind, there were several million of them. Also, a bunch of dogs ate all my homework, and I was sick with bird flu, mad cow disease, chicken pox and toads in my stool.

Anyway, here are some swell Cramps pics for you to look at, plus one fucked-up old comic book story from about a zillion years ago.

Although the Cramps always claim in interviews they don't play psychobilly, it would be odd not to mention them on a psychobilly website. The similarities between psychobilly and the Cramps are obvious. Both have their roots in rockabilly and mix it with modern punkrock influences. The difference is probably that psychobilly is a nineties or eighties thing, and the Cramps can be considered more as a retro band...
