> & stranger still, apparently last year the Cramps' infamous Napa State
> Mental Hospital show was released on DVD & I had no idea:
Since the Cramps performance is only 30 minutes long, there is like an
hour of weird old Target Video clips and trailers tacked on to the end
of the DVD, stuff like Crime playing at a California prison (the
prisoners look bored, Crime looks nervous) and Z'ev banging pots and
pans monotonously for a crowd of hipsters that look like extras from The
Warriors, and Survival Research Labs with their flamethrower robot battles.
That Cramps performance really holds up too- it's before they were in
total cartoon mode- Lux looks like he could be a member of Television-
and Brian Gregory just rocks. Lux is obviously digging it as much as the
crowd, not intimidated in the slightest.
