How To Make A Monster
Vengeance - VENGEANCE 677
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Displaying their disdain for the myth of musical progress, The CRAMPS reach back into the clammy womb of their prehistoric past to release HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER, a 2- disc 143 minute frightfest of previously unreleased rare tracks. Thrill to 1st ever rehearsals featuring Bryan Gregory's sister on drums and Lux Interior ripping out a guitar solo! Wonder what substance they abused during a 1982 rehearsal as they stumble through "Rumble Blues" and add an apocalyptic twist to "Lonesome Town". You'll actually hear a dope deal going on in the background during their 3rd ever live gig at Max's Kansas City! All this and more! Stupefying! Includes book with extensive liner notes by Lux and Ivy, themselves, and rare and unseen photos and flyers from their personal collection. All material previously unreleased. 1982 studio demos with the GUN CLUB's Terry Graham on drums. 3rd ever live gig at Max's Kansas City with relentless hecklers. 1 year later live at CBGB with shrieking chaos (not the name of a band). Global ad campaign in magazines/fanzines. Lotsa press coverage in international publications. Lotsa posters/promos for retail.

These pages are dedicated to my favorite band the Cramps. I am trying to not duplicate what's already been done on the web, but there may be some overlap. The song titles of the bootlegs are shown as they are actually listed on the label or sleeve. I don't recommend throwing your money away on these things unless you already have all the Cramps legitimate stuff. The information comes from pieces in my personal collection and from the following sources:

The Cramps A Cramps Discography



The Cramps - conceived, laid out, and edited by Lindsay Hutton in 1985. This and it's companion discography are particularly good book/fanzine things. The fanzine contains reprints of numerous early articles and photos. To quote Lindsay, "The Cramps were, and still could be, the most emotive rock 'n' roll force this planet has or will ever spawn." No shit!





Wild Wild World Of The Cramps


The Wild Wild World Of The Cramps - By Ian Johnston, 1990. Another fine labor of love with many nice B&W photos of the Cramps.


Jolis Monstres - The Cramps The CrampsHere's a couple more books about The Cramps worth checking out. They are both written in French and the Jolis Monstres book is in Spanish also. Unfortunately I cannot read either. Each has about 100 pages of text. The one with Ivy on the cover is from 1989 and has several B&W photos. It is more difficult to find than the other, which is from 1995 and also has a lot of pictures.













Please Note: Items on the bootleg pages without graphics are not in my collection and I would like to trade for or purchase these. Also, I need any Legion Of The Cramped (LOTC) stuff and Rockin' Bones fanzine #'s 1-8 & 10. Please contact me rockndog@carrollsweb.com if you have any of this stuff.
