Songs The Lord Taught Us
Label: EMI Records
Still stark, startling and funny LP debut from The Cramps was the template for all of their following work – garage-soaked rockabilly, horror stories straight out of EC Comics and the kind of leather-jacketed nonchalance and acne-scarred bad attitude that once thrived in juvenile delinquence movies. If this included the early single“Human Fly” it could stand up as definitive. This was produced by Alex Chilton of Box Tops and Big Star fame.
