On this day in 2009 Lux Interior, vocalist for The Cramps, died of a heart condition called aortic dissection; along with his wife of 37 years Poison Ivy, the pair were the only permanent members of the band whose skillful blending of punk, garage, and rockabilly not only helped to bring about psychobilly but made them fixtures in the scene that coalesced around Manhattan's CBGB night club in the 1970s.
Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs originally appeared on the band's eleventh album Flamejob in 1994; the track also features the work of Slim Chance on bass and Harry Drumdini on - what else? - drums.
