Inspiration: The Rockabilly Passing of Lux Interior

In lieu of Lux Interior’s, of The Cramps, February death I propose we all wear tight leather and beatle-esque boots for the remainder of February. His wife and band-mate, Poison Ivy, would be proud if we showed her husband some rockabilly fashion justice.

Bring out your B horror movie collection for inspiration of the darker kind and scan vintage and kitschy leather stores for psychobilly gems. Don’t be afraid to be a little trashy. Smear on the red lipstick, tease the hair to exaggerated multi-colored proportions, bring out the pumps or intimidating black boots and inch into that leopard print mini-skirt. For the boys, leather pants without a shirt will do.

As J.H. Sasfy, Professor of Rockology, said of the Cramps, “Without fresh air or natural light, the group developed its uniquely mutant strain of rock n’ roll aided only by the sickly blue rays of late night TV….As late night sci-fi reruns colored the room…then they added the junkiest element of all — themselves.”

Rest in peace. But long live leather!
