    Mad Daddy Monsters: A Suspect look at The Cramps.

    Mad Daddy Monsters: A Suspect look at The Cramps.

    What do you get when you mix deviant sex, b-movies, hot rods, surfin', goth, rock and roll, fetishism, horror comics and humour?

    You get one of the most insane, rock and roll bands of all time: The CRAMPS.   Beginning in 1976 and labelled 'psychobilly' by some, the Cramps' style of terror-and-madness infused southern-surf-garage-noise is a sound all their own and their unabashedly embracing of pretty much everything we love made us want to share the history of this seminal band who's influences rippled far and wide.

    Join us for our look at the mad daddy monster mayhem that is...THE CRAMPS
    Featuring lots of awesome music excerpts:

    New Wave to A Return of the Nightmare:A Very Suspect Look At Alice Cooper: Part 2

    The 1980s and 90s was a drifting period for our favorite shock rocker.  
    Embracing various musical avenues and experimenting with new sounds and looksm we saw a few new incarnations of ALICE. 
    Yes, embracing a leaner new wave asthetic was considered by many to be his low point, (We dissagree STRONGLY!) both musically and sales-wise before diving into a more glam metal period, finally returning to where he stepped out on his own originally.

    Join us in part two of our look at the turbulent times and musical ups and downs of the man who brought horror to rock and roll!

Wonderful

This show reminds me of the years I spent frequenting Suspect Video when I lived in Toronto (1999-2016), discovering countless titles thanks to the fantastic staff. Thanks for this!

Fantastic

Love this show. Very nostalgic- feels like I’m walking into the queen store every time I sit down to listen.
