 Home : Artists : C : The Cramps

The Cramps were an American garage punk band formed in Sacramento, California in 1976. The band is influential in founding psychobilly, a fusion of punk, rockabilly, surf rock, and goth rock. Their music is mostly in blues form, played at varying, (though usually fast) tempos, with a very minimal drumkit. An integral part of the early Cramps sound is dual guitars, without a bassist. The content of their songs and image is sleaze, trashy Americana (much in the style of filmmaker John Waters), sexual fetishism, clever bad jokes, and cheap, horror B-movie clichés.
