Formed in New York City in the spring of 1976, The Cramps combined instrumental rock, surf, psychedelia, and sixties punk/garage with a challenging sexualized image. Their most recent album was 2003's Fiends of Dope Island which was followed by the rarities compilation, How to Make a Monster.
. Those unfamiliar with the band could check out the Alex Chilton-produced Songs the Lord Taught Us which is widely heralded as a classic of the genre.
