Mommy, can I go out and cramp tonight?
07/12/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The album The Purple Knif Show is a must have for every Cramps fan out there. If you can imagine allowing Lux Interior to posses your radio station to do his own radio show, then this cd is definitely for you. Lux does his own style of 50's sci-fi oddity D.J.ing, and brings up classic garage trash that America has since lost track of. Tracks such as "Whip" by The Frantics, "Bird 65" by The Trashmen, "The Fuzz" by Link Wray, and "Chicken" by The Sparkplugs (later to be covered on The Cramps-A Date With Elvis cd. If you're into the Cramps, this cd is the perfect addidtion to your collection.--Turn Blue--"

"Listening to the greatness of this 1984 radio show Lux Enterior makes me wish he would compile anthologies of these obscure rock 'n' roll sides. Its a well known fact that Lux has a massive knowledge of 50s and 60s rock 'n' roll, and on this obscure radio show he spins his favorite sides. The sides make for an entertaining listen, and this radio show only get funner with each listen. Imagine an alternative-universe version of the "Nuggets" compilations. In addition to the great Lux's dj-ing, his selection is flawless. Some of the songs I know from various "Back From the Grave"-type compilations. However, most of the songs Lux spins here I've never heard. The artists are so obscure [...] often doesn't list them. The songs themselves are possibly the most bizarre and surreal early rock 'n' rollers recorded. A great listen for Cramps fans. If you like this album, check out the "Big Itch" series on Norton Records (released on the label moniker Mr. Mancotti)."
