The Cramps – Human Fly


The Cramps were an American garage punk band formed in Sacramento, California in 1976. The band was influential in founding of a hybrid subgenre later known as “psychobilly,” which is a fusion of punk and rockabilly. Their music is mostly in blues form, played at varying, (though usually fast) tempos, with a very minimal drumkit. An integral part of the early Cramps sound is dual guitars, without a bassist. The content of their songs and image is sleaze, trashy Americana (much in the style of filmmaker John Waters), sexual fetishism, clever bad jokes, and cheap, horror B-movie clichés.

Their line-up has rotated much over the past couple of decades, with husband and wife Lux Interior and Poison Ivy–the lead singer and lead guitarist, respectively–as the only permanent members.
Lux picked up Ivy when he was driving on the highway. Ivy had raised her hand for an auto stop, Lux stopped his car and …fate brought them together.

They were part of the early CBGB’s punk rock movement that had emerged in New York, although they had formed several years earlier in California. The band is credited as a prominent factor in terms of influence on the gothabilly genre.

Their sound was heavily influenced by early rockabilly and proto-rock’n’roll like Link Wray and Hasil Adkins, 1960s surf music acts such as The Ventures, The Surfaris and Dick Dale, 1960s garage rock artists like The Standells, The Gants, The Trashmen, The Green Fuz and The Sonics, as well as the post-glam/early punk scene from which they emerged. They also were influenced to a degree by The Ramones as well as Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, who is often credited for having pioneered their style of theatrical horror-blues.

On February 4, 2009, Lux Interior died of a pre-existing heart condition at the age of 62.

The Gories – Nitroglycerine

The Gories are an American garage rock trio that formed in Detroit in 1986. They were among the first 1980s garage rock bands to incorporate overt blues influences. The band features Mick Collins (of The Dirtbombs), Dan Kroha (of The Demolition Doll Rods) on guitar and vocals, and Peggy O’Neill on drums.

While the band originally broke up in 1992 after a European tour. The band reformed in July 2009 for a reunion tour across Europe, along with co-headliners The Oblivians. The band reconvened for a second reunion tour in 2010, this time across North America.

The Irradiates – Dark Clouds

THE IRRADIATES are four brothers, a product of the star-crossed encounter of a guitarist father and astrophysicist mother. Bound as much by their blood as their love of science, all four of the world renowned researchers left on a quest to find a sidereal material which hypothetically possesses the power to improve musical performance capacities. While taking samples, they were struck by burning green radiation emitted from a still unidentified planet.
Upon their return to earth in the spring of 2007, they were locked in a decontamination unit where they took up their instruments and passed 10 surf classics through a radioactive filter.

Tetris- the manipulative space has detected the Irradiates through its special interstellar radar and predicts precisely that they will debark in Prishtina at 8:15 pm SHARP, on Tuseday, Aprill 8th, 2014 to emit radioactive waves that cause uncontrollable human-body vibrations.

The entrance will be 2 euros; a contribution for the band so that right after the emission of surf-punk waves, they fill their cosmic ship with fuel and return to space!
