Lux Interior, 1946 - 2009

lux Damn, this is sad. Hague was reminiscing just yesterday about seeing The Cramps play live decades ago in the Whiskey A Go Go. Lux spent the whole gig simultaneously deep-throating his mike and screaming...

"There aren't," Hague noted, "bands like that anymore..." Bands that you really would not take your mother to see. Terrifying, alien new lifeforms whose very existence challenges your accepted view of the world.

RIP Lux Interior. As Hague just wrote to me: "Suckin' that big 58 in the sky."
