A veritable torrent of essential dime-worrying jukebox 45s from Lux and Ivy of The Cramps' overheated jukebox with freckled fish, wolves and a dab of the ole Uranium blues. 50 sub three-minute epics from twangy instrumentals to hopped-up novelty tunes, insane rockabilly tirades to RnB scorchers, new dance trends and swaggering rock 'n' rollers to aching melancholy laments - all undercut with an inevitable streak of madness and everyday irreverence. Featuring a cavalcade of no-hit wonders bemoaning ill-advised beards, car club etiquette, broken school romances, Martian invasions, overweight feathered friends, purring kittens, lonely travellers, relationship-inducing mental cruelty and all points between. Add to that some life affirming anthems aided by Lee Hazelwood, Kim Fowley, the unheralded Don Cole, latter day soul legend Bobby Freeman, Louis Jordan and Johnny 'Guitar' Watson plus a teenage love letter to Elvis from The Threeteens who also hold forth on algebra. Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine's Dave Henderson.
