  • I got the Cramps!!!!
    OFF THE BONE is the ideal Cramps compilation. 17 tracks of rabid Psycho-billy from the years before Lux and company lapsed into self parody. My only complaint is that it does not include the sublime TV SET. If this CD had turned up in Saddam's collection, W could have justified his WMD folly. Oh well, Saddam seems to be a Yanni fan....more info

  • Classic Cramps
    I bought this years ago on Vinyl when i was but a pup. the album cover and the back cover are in 3D which is nice. i can't remember if there were any 3D glasses included but i guess that doesn't matter. my 6 year-old son has recently discovered that if he uses his 3D glasses from Spy Kids 3-D the Off The Bone album cover looks pretty cool too. the CD has two additional tracks, the last two, which is also nice. as mentioned in other reviews, there is no 'new' material on this disc but that doesn't keep it from being a classic Cramps disc. If you can find this on vinyl, you should get it just for the 3D album cover....more info
  • The Cramps: Off the Bone (1983) - 3 stars
    US based rock band The Cramps were officially formed in 1976, and have most of the time been an underground band. They still have a cult following, and are still active after more than 30 years. Off the Bone is a compilation of early singles, b-sides and obscurities first released in 1983.

    Musically the band's major influences are from old rock music; rockabilly and fifties rock 'n roll especially. The bands take on that musical style is to twist it into something else - at best they create dark and twisted rockabilly and rock 'n roll mutations sounding like an Elvis impersonator from the deepest pits of hell, at worst their music sounds like punk influenced noise made by young teenagers in the garage. The vocals are often whacky and off beat; with more or less effective vocal fooling around instead of singing.

    The songs on this record is a collection of bits and pieces; and it shows. Some of the tracks are superbly done, while others leave you with the question "Why was this ever recorded?". But getting this album is an easy way to get all of the early singles from the group; and for the tracks that aren't really good there's always a skip button.

    Recommended for people that would like to explore the earliest music from these rockabilly punk veterans....more info
  • Cramps - 'Off The Bone' (Zonophone)
    For any old school Cramps fans,this seventeen track compilation disc is a should-have.When I looked more closely to the track listing,I realized it was a combination of the 'Gravest Hits' five-song EP along with their 'Bad Music For Bad People' lp.Even though all these vintage psychobilly tunes have indeed been released several times before,'Off The Bone' is STILL worth owning a copy of.It's always fun to hear "Human Fly","Surfin' Bird","Drug Train","Go Goo Muck" and "Uranium Rock" as well as the others.Nice mysterious cover.Enjoy....more info
