When people think of the bands on Creation in the ’90s, The Cramps unsurprisingly never get a mention.
Released just weeks after Definitely Maybe by Oasis in October 1994, Flamejob by The Cramps seemed like an album from another time.
Presumably licensed to Creation this release highlighted that during the hugely successful Britpop years the label still hadn’t forgotten it’s roots.
Flamejob along with two singles, Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs and Ultra Twist, were to be all the band released on Creation.
The album is now being reissued by Music on Vinyl to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The press release states: “The garage punk band The Cramps returned in 1994 with their sixth studio album Flamejob. Wild vocals from Lux Interior and the creepy guitar work from Poison Ivy marks one of their most energetic performances in quite a long time. The whole album centres on the subjects sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. Most of the tracks clocking just beneath the 3 minutes and the album contains multiple covers. The most famous one of them is “Route 66”, which is infused with the famous Cramps sound.”
