Woo Hoo! Holy DyeGrl Batman! I am there at the start of August! Totally dig the tiki bar joint idea! I planned the ticket to make sure I wouldn't miss the Zombies. Looks like it's a total music week, starting on the First. Thanks for the message back. Mel
Lisa , OMG , I did'nt know you got hit in the HEAD. yOU WERE SO COOL , JUST SMILED AND GOT BACK TO WORK. iVY WOULD HAVE BEEN SO PROUD. i HOPE YOU'RE DOING BETTER , THOUGH. I was a little worried about the beer bottles on stage. I could have thrown them out , because I knew Mike would break them , and he did ,HA HA , but we swept them in one area with our feet so no one would step in the busted glass.
But , yeah , it was a big , bad trip , that night in '03...Lux went out in the crowd , and people were hitting him , then their roadie , Jason from The Fuzztones and Lords of Altamont , had to keep the people off the stage , himself , because the bouncers wanted no part of it , then he got dragged down to the floor , about 2/3rds of the way from the stage to where that ramp is at House of Blue$, and all these fratboys started beting the Hell out of him. I felt terrible for him , but , I did'nt feel so good for myself . I'd waited 6 years to see The Cramps again (Which , I know , is better than never. I had to wait NINE years just to see 'em the first time.), and you jockass motherfuckers are ruining it for the REAL fans. They probably did'nt even know who The Cramps WERE , 6 years earlier. Someone on youtube said I exaggerated the extent of the attack on Jason. I said , look , I'm friends with their ex - road manager , and all I know is , he got 38 stitches , and that's not counting all the bruises and minor cuts , I'm sure. Because the babies did'nt get to pway with their BALLS. Because they had no balls. You're right , Ivy took off her guitar and started shouting at Lux , who may have been a bit in shock , but looked nonplussed . I think he was drinking more , later in life. They did'nt eat meat ,and only used drugs , if at all , on a mildly recreational level , later in life , and exercised constantly. But , yeah , he'd had too many ,that night , then all this other shit went down. They came back after leaving the stage , when Jason was hurt and sent to the hospital , and did maybe two songs. They were probably on stage for an hour , maybe less. They normally did long encores , capping them off with an epic "Surfin' Bird". I'm sure they played just long enough to serve out the terms of the contract. The good news was , they did "Garbageman" , which they never did in the 90's. But , it was all so WRONG.

DO YOU KNOW....That when Mike accidentally hit you with a piece of the mike stand (I'm glad you were'nt really hurt.) , the exact same thing happened when The Cramps played here in 2003? Lux was very drunk , and there were bad vibes in the air (Like jockboys beating the FUCK out of their roadie , who probably wieghed 120 Lbs.) . But , Lux just tossed a piece of the mikestand up over his head , rolled his eyes , and it landed squarely on Ivy's noggin ! She was goin' off on him like a damn Hillbilly woman ! You could just hear that cartoon flea voice ! So , be glad life did'nt imitate art TOO much.

"Thanks for your thoughts. I don't want to piss off fans by issuing later a 45 they thought was very limited. I really like the 100-copy idea, though. It can BARELY pay for itself, but would be so cool...
"Yeah , Johnny , I DID , BUT I FORGOT WHAT I SAID....I remembered reading some of the lyrics when "..."And You Suck" came out , and wondering how long they'd last before some Radical Feminists set their practice…"
