Episode 74 – Don’t Cramp My Style

Did you ever get the feeling that some of us were born bad? With a naughty or even wicked tendency that if unchecked leads to disaster, glorious disaster. Skid Row baby! The Cramps gave us a master class from the dark side of Americana by re-imagining the desperate tunes from the underbelly of 50’s Rock & Roll.


  • A countin’ with Dicky Treadway & the Salados – they got your number.
  • Black Christ of the Andes: Mary Lou Williams’ preaches the Gospel according to Jazz in a dark mass that cuts to the quick.
  • The Dadaist tropical sounds of Tom Ze brought back from the wilderness by David Byrne in 1992.
  • How James Brown earned his dancing shoes and learned the steps.
  • Snap, Crackle and Hip Hop with Positive K.
  • The sparks that fly when a Moroccan muse takes a yuppie for his wife.
