CRAMPS,THE : Smell Of Female
Originally release in 1983, this completely remastered live lp was recorded at New York's Peppermint Lounge with Kid Congo Powers on guitar, the quartet slams out a then mostly entirely new set of songs with, as expected, appropriate covers as needed.
The wonderfully profane take on Hasil Adkins' 'She Said' surfaces here, with Interior sounding like he's about to die more than once. The Count Five's 'Psychotic Reaction' and the perfectly appropriate 'Faster Pussycat,' taken from the legendary Russ Meyer film of the same name, also give the band more than a little something to chew onA studio cut, 'Surfin' Dead,' surfaces as a ringer at the end; if not quite the Cramps go Beach Boys.
