RIP Lux Interior

On Feb 6th, the great frontman of the Cramps died. Check out BS co-owner Rob Miller's obituary in Blurt.

Lux Interior, the singer, showman, shaman, rock and rock archeologist, thinking and fucking man's Elvis by way of Vincent Price, huffing, puffing, grinding leather-panted and stiletto-healed leader of the Cramps died on February 4th. They were/are my favorite band. Ever. Lux, guitarist Poison Ivy and the rest messed me up but good and I never really got to thank them for it.

A Silos Update from Walter

It's been over twelve months since Drew passed away. It still seems
impossible. The Silos have had many true members and many. many honorary
members, yet I feel that Drew's passing has been the biggest change in the
history of the band. I know he would have wanted us to continue, and we
will, but with whom and in what direction? Konrad and I have been fortunate
and honored to have had Rod Hohl with us for almost two years as our
bassist and most of all as our brother. He joined when Drew moved from bass
to guitar and made The Silos his comfortable home. We've also had many NYC
friends join us at all the Drew tribute shows - Bruce Martin, Jason Victor,
Russ Meissner, Dennis Kronen, Mary Lee Kortes, Eric Ambel.........our NC
buddies Caitlin Cary, Lynn Blakey, and the whole Pour House crew.......and
our Austin contingent - Jon Dee Graham, Kyle Schneider, Steve McAllister,
and Michelle Anthony have all benefitted from Drew's eternal glow.

'Ruins of Berlin' gets 4 stars from SPIN!

The folks over at SPIN have entered their verdict on the new Dex album, Ruins of Berlin, and it's a four-starred one!

First in Flat Duo Jets, and now with nimble sis Sara Romweber (ex–Let's Active) on drums, the dynamic Dexter keeps the careening, untamed spirit of early rock'n'roll alive by not taking anything too seriously. Ruins of Berlin aims to raise his profile by featuring tender duets with Cat Power ("Love Letters") and Neko Case ("Still Around"). But it's fevered outbursts like "Lookout" and "Grey Skies," where Dex unleashes his slightly sloshed voice and surfabilly guitar, that have real soul-saving potential. -- John Young, SPIN.com
