Lux Interior, R.I.P.

By admin Published: February 5, 2009

The musical leader of the Cramps has died. Stories here and here.

I first took note of the Cramps in the late '90s when co-writing the book "Ghoulardi: Inside Cleveland TV's Wildest Ride." Lux, originally named Erick Lee Purkhiser, was a fan of Ghoulardi and local pop culture generally (notably in a musical tribute to DJ Pete "Mad Daddy" Myers). They named one album "Stay Sick," and Lux once hosted a radio show as the Purple Knif. Their CD "Big Beat From Badsville," which came out the year Ernie "Ghoulardi" Anderson died, is dedicated to Ghoulardi.

I still have a couple of their CDs -- "Big Beat" and "Songs the Lord Taught Us" -- but haven't played them in a long time. But I will today.
