Displaying their disdain for the myth of musical progress, THE CRAMPS have reached back into the clammy womb of their prehistoric past to release HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER, a 2- disc 143 minute frightfest of previously unreleased rare tracks. Thrill to first ever rehearsals featuring Bryan Gregory’s sister on drums and Lux Interior ripping out a guitar solo! Wonder what substance they abused during a 1982 rehearsal as they stumble through "Rumble Blues" and add an apocalyptic twist to “Lonesome Town”. You’ll actually hear a dope deal going on in the background during their third ever live gig at Max’s Kansas City! All this and more! Stupefying!

— Includes 28-page book with extensive liner notes by Lux and Ivy, themselves, with
rare and unseen photos and flyers from their personal collection.
— All material previously unreleased.
— 1982 studio demos with the GUN CLUB’s Terry Graham on drums.
— Early and different arrangement of "Journey to the Center of a Girl".
— Early version of "Everything Goes" to the tune of “Bikini Girls with Machine Guns”!
— Home demo of All Women are Bad with just Lux, Ivy, and a drum machine.
— Third ever live gig at Max’s Kansas City with relentless hecklers.
— One year later live at CBGB with shrieking chaos.

OUT NOW!
