    I just heard that Lux Interior has died

    I saw The Cramps in about ’92 at the Old Melbourne. Lux was magnificent in a red vinyl catsuit and slingbacks, not unlike this video

    RIP mate

    Skink, I thought the Old Melbourne closed in 1992.

    I tried looking up the Cramps tour dates last night and it implied they toured in ’90 and June 1995 (I recall not going to that one in the Boans Warehouse when.

    But then I found mention elsewhere that the played the Parrot or Canterbury Court in the ’80s… So my info might be wrong.

    Thanks LA for the traditional Worst.
    As member for Morley I’ll have that car towed ASAP.

    And it shows – when a Breaking News Story is reported on something which occoured 2 hours previously – as a direct consequence of the police radio communications going digital and encrypted and the media relying on a delayed version of the CAD System :-) Mind you they’re not much better in reporting fires either.

    Just a note about the Cramps. It was Canterbury Court, and it was 1986. I remember one incident. Some moron in the crowd hurled a beer can at the band. The lead singer then addressed the anonymous shit saying something like “Don’t throw things at us. If you do, we will leave, and then the audience will kill you”.

    I remember 1986 as being a year for lobbing beer cans at bands. I narrowly missed a full one while on stage at the Shents, and there was this diabolical thrash band called The Greenhouse Effect, whose followers seemed to think it was mandatory to chuck stuff at them while they were playing. Got a great bit of audio where the lead singer says “don’t chuck shit when we’re starting a song… if you’re gonna chuck shit, don’t chuck it at our heads!” I actually witnessed him copping a can in the forehead at the Wizbah, and he stormed off stage in a huff.

    Speaking of Tod, his covewrage of the Victorian Bushfries on 6PR is really cringeworthy – all jingoistic and really shallow and crass, as opposed to the ABC Local Radio coverage from Melbourne which was relayed last night and early this morning on Newsradio.

    RIP Lux.

    Cramps definately played Old Melbourne in about 86. Towards the end of the night, Lux did a stage dive off the top of the speaker stack wearing only a leopard skin print g-string while singing “Fever”. You don’t forget something like that. Vague memory is that they played Canterbury Court the night before the Old Melbourne. That’s how they did things in the olden days.

  35. News yes, but wall to wall coverage no? The news radio coverage was mostly about what roads were closed. A bulletin every hour would have been plenty. There is zero chance there would have given over news radio wall to wall if wa had been on fire, no matter how many carked. Road closures is what the local stations are for.

    Oh I see. Yes, I believe I have the closer version somewhere on Beta tape. Peter Dean was always the announcer for Channel 7’s closing segments, and it got to the point that friends of mine and I (are you listening Bedford Crackpot?) were convinced that he lived in the building, and we pictured him doing the voice-over in his pyjamas each night, and wandering around the corridors switching all the lights off, carrying a candle on a dish, wearing a floppy night cap.
