Las favoritas de Lux & Ivy

Lux and Ivy's favorites


Poison Ivy & Lux Interior, 1991|Michael Lavine


Me encontré con una reseña en WFMU's Beware of the Blog (un sitio curioso que suelo visitar) sobre una colección en varios volúmenes que circulaba en Soulseek conteniendo las canciones favoritas de mis inadaptados preferidos, la guitarrista Poison Ivy y su marido, el desaparecido Lux Interior, es decir The Cramps. La recopilación proviene de una página de fans de los Cramps en Yahoo, Staysick, que seleccionó algunos temas de la recomendabilísima serie de álbumes 'Songs The Cramps Taught Us' y agregó otros escuchados en grabaciones piratas o leídos en entrevistas*. Yo los encontré en Voodoo Village (1 y 2) y obviamente no soy responsable del contenido de esos enlaces y bla, bla, bla pero los comparto para interesados.

I found this story on WFMU's Beware of the Blog (a fun site I visit often) about a collection in several volumes available in Soulseek containing the favorite songs of that great couple of misfits, guitarist Poison Ivy and her husband, the sadly departed Lux Interior, ie The Cramps. The collection comes from a fan page on Yahoo called Staysick (as one of their albums), and contains tracks from the highly recommendable series of albums 'Songs The Cramps Taught Us' and others heard on bootlegs or read about in interviews*. I found them in Voodoo Village (1 & 2) and obviously I'm not responsible for the content of those links but I recommend it for fans of The Cramps.
