Her love rubbed off

Argh!! I just discovered this live video by the mightily awesome THE CRAMPS on YouTube! It's awesome! It's their cover of that old Carl Perkins track "Her Love Rubbed Off". I remmeber Lux talking about the song in an interview many years back where he said Perkins recorded it one time he was drunk in the studio and that he was in total denial of the song, haha. You can see why THE CRAMPS had to record it!!!

The video is from a gig in Holland 1990. I actually saw them the same year at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. Poison Ivy looks absolutely stunning here. I wonder how she's doing these days?


I just checked the uploader's account and here's more awesome stuff from that Dutch TV broadcast:


  1. I remember hearing this band in my 20's and I thought they were cool, but the lead singers voice got on my nerves after a while. Great clothes though and the heels, well don't get me started.

  2. Hey there ice cream friend!
    Weeell, in my book The Cramps didn't put a finger wrong so I can't agree with you on his voice. LOL. But that's alright. I only got to see them once but it became a long running trek that still continues to this day.
