motownjcSend motownjc a message :   fuck this is sick! i felt like this all day after the election...probably looked like it as well.   2004-11-04 01:31:22
Beto RamirezSend Beto Ramirez a message :   Michael did you design the Cramps logo? I just wonder... it looks like you did. :roll:   2004-10-29 17:23:12
MeelooSend Meeloo a message :   wow ! Michael, this is brilliant ! i love it, i love the Cramps & it fits totally the band !   2004-10-27 13:20:45
RavenousMediaSend RavenousMedia a message :   Pretty much everyone big into horror loves the classics too - but they're singing about the God Monster not Frankenstien - just sayin'. There are a lot of really cool things in this poster - ivy's voodoo skull, the background, lux's teeth & black vinyl, and again it's a very solid design from a technical standpoint. The central frankenstien concept seems like a way too obvious theme though.
"No need for everyone to always do the same thing." - funny you should say that: http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?band=1506&s=1
Ok, now I'm just being a dick - ha ha ha.

SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   I interviewed Lux for Gravy zine go to www.gravyzine.com and he is just as into the classic monster stuff, it isn't always trashy stuff. The leopard background color gives enought of an element to trash aesthethic. No need for everyone to always do the same thing. It is not off target.   2004-10-27 08:28:05
RavenousMediaSend RavenousMedia a message :   Hey, if you're confident the image fits the band, then don't listen to me.
Here's what that name is more likely in reference to though:

SashSend Sash a message :   nice poster. the Cramps rock. always thought Poison Ivy was hot. same as Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth). they still look pretty good.   2004-10-27 06:23:33
ZELIGSend ZELIG a message :   I'd still nail Ivy (although the stage adds a lot of points to anyone's looks).   2004-10-27 03:40:29
seripopSend seripop a message :   lux is old and still sexy as heck i'd like to do a cramps poster too please and thank you poster gods   2004-10-27 01:10:32
Michael M. MotorcycleSend Michael M. Motorcycle a message :   R.M. I honestly have no idea what you are saying to me. I am a long time Cramps fan, am totally familiar with their vibe. The band is into the poster. The promotors are into the poster. I respect your opinion but I think that your views of what is and isn't a proper Cramps poster is a little narrow. Frankenstein and Mary Shelley are references to the name of their new record which is How To Make a Monster. Also as Ryan says it is on Halloween weekend. To each his own though. You are entitled to your opinion. It's really no big deal to me at all.   2004-10-26 23:56:21
ZELIGSend ZELIG a message :   Ivy's guitar seemed bigger than her this time around on tour.   2004-10-26 23:16:58
ryanaugustSend ryanaugust a message :   Dude, a Cramps show the day before Halloween?!?! This is perfect.   2004-10-26 23:07:09
Stainboy ReinelSend Stainboy Reinel a message :   Agreed. Man I love watching Poison Ivy play guitar. She really nails that sound in the most perfect way, live.   2004-10-26 23:07:06
RavenousMediaSend RavenousMedia a message :   musically yes - they are more genuine golden age stuff. But image - trashy as fuck. Come on - he's the "Garbage Man".   2004-10-26 23:03:50
Stainboy ReinelSend Stainboy Reinel a message :   I never associated the Cramps with the 'trash' thing. To me, they're more like authentic rockabilly - like how insane it really sounded in the mid 50s long before the Happy Days / sock hop / fake greaser image of it took over. The Cramps remind me of stuff like Joe Clay and Billy Lee Riley.   2004-10-26 23:00:28
RavenousMediaSend RavenousMedia a message :   No, cliche sleaze wouldn't cut it either. Lux is the kind of guy who'd come out on stage in fetish gear, and flop his cock out an inch away from your face. Classics like Frankenstein don't come to mind when I think of the Cramps, I think grindhouse sexploitation trash like Faster Pussycat Kill Kill. This is definitely a good image from a technical standpoint, but I don't think it captures the Cramp's vibe. Here's one I think fits the cramps: http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=16153 This one's my favorite here, it isn't as overtly sleazy but still fits with their image of sex, horror, drugs, and plain weirdness: http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=8216   2004-10-26 22:53:14
ELYSE!Send ELYSE! a message :   yes, it is so disappointing when a poster is lacking in sleaze. If only the image included, like, oh, a monster with bulging eyes about rape a woman with breasts larger than her head. Now that would be original. Not that I would ever wish make a comment that would offend an artist. Merely a musing.   2004-10-26 21:06:07
SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   Anyways, this poster is perfect in every way: typography, design, composition, lighting, technique, etc, etc.
  2004-10-26 15:21:39
RavenousMediaSend RavenousMedia a message :   Maybe they just forgot... They're fans of the movie, Lux started off the song "Creature From the Black Leather Lagoon" with "You better ask my momma how to make a monster" -   2004-10-26 14:16:30
SalcanzonieriSend Salcanzonieri a message :   Cramps named their new album How to Make a Monster even after they knew that EF's album was called that (the Coop cover) and he personally asked me for a copy of it when it came out. I don't know why they would name it that after knowing we already used that title (of course it is a old film title that I got it from) when it will cause confusion at all the distributors, but it's their problem now (distros input via album title not band title, so all orders potentially will be going to my record instead of theirs).   2004-10-26 13:33:36

Stainboy ReinelSend Stainboy Reinel a message :   This rules. Really great job Michael.
I had to cancel my Cramps job due to the storms here, so I've got an almost-complete poster ready to go when they come back.

Brendan JordanSend Brendan Jordan a message :   Yeah! The Wollenscrafts were an important literary family in their own right. You can't forget the Wollenscraft!
In fact, perhaps Percy Byshe Shelly should have added Wollenscraft into his name somewhere too.
