The Cramps: From Hell to Eternity

Mat Snow, Q, April 1990

Ravaged, cadaverous, generally rather unsavoury, they crawled from rock 'n' roll's crypt to bring their X-rated voodoobilly music to a devoted troupe of ghoulish disciples. And 13 years later... The Cramps are exactly the same! Mat Snow meets the new wave novelty act that refused to die.
