You Got Good Taste

Right around this time of the year, way back in “the olden days”, I hurried my teen self to the front of the stage to witness a live circus sideshow at Montreal’s The Spectrum. Sparkly pointy shoes, “eff-you” hot pink hair, Ramones-like ultra heavy leather jacket, and I was ready for The Cramps. I’m not sure what I expected from the band. I know I didn’t expect to grab a gold lamé bikini-clad Lux Interior and try to launch him into the audience. Seems my grip in 1985 was not terribly spectacular. Being in front of the stage, I did sustain some minor injuries: two perfectly circular purple/black bruises on my knees. From hitting the stage wall, of course.

Lux is long gone, as is the venue. My leather jacket currently resides in a lovely cedar closet, and I occasionally take it out to see if it still fits (kinda).

The Cramps “are one complete thing separate from this world.”
