THE CRAMPS | "LIVE" 1978 At Napa State Mental Hospital | UPDATE

LIVE at Napa State Mental Hospital, 13 June 1978.

Bryan Gregory can't stop laughing...  Lux, in his element and surrounded by mental patients tells the crowd "We're The Cramps, and we're from New York City, and we drove 3,000 miles to play for you people. And somebody told me you people are crazy, but I'm not so sure about that.... you seem to be alright to me."

It's the weirdo drugged out vibe of a punk show with a certain institutional tension added to the whole thing as you keep expecting someone to lock the room up and keep The Cramps in there forever, just to prevent this weird collision of psyches from infecting the rest of the world.

-- Admit to insanity, they'll trust in your sanity.
