The Cramps/The Mutants: Napa State Hospital, Napa CA

Howie Klein, New York Rocker, July 1978

"LET'S DRIVE UP to the funny farm. The Cramps and Mutants are doin' a concert for the nuts; should be lotsa yuks." I wanna take the rap for going up to the show at Napa State with the attitude of wantin' to see the pinheads and cretins. I had even tried to talk the Mutants into doing 'Cretin Hop'. As long as the loonies didn't touch me or drool on me it was all gonna be a load of laughs.
