    Beat From Badsville Volume 2 CD

    Here's the 2nd volume in the Beat From Badsville series.
    Out there, if you look hard enough, you'll find crazed visionaries, half deaf creatives, lunatics let loose with whistles, juvenile delinquents with a notepad and pen and people who, quite frankly, have no time for the theory of pop. Thank God!
    This collection brings together two dozen songs by such people - tunes that don't fall into any easy categories and give short shrift to the context of classic or traditional songwriting.
    The collection is divided into four themes: "Spooky Doo Wop and Insane Harmonies", "Angry Babes Getting Even", "Rumbling Rhythms and Wildcat Whistling", "Chickens and Other Party Animals".
    This is the stuff of legend, the Beat from Badsville.
    All of these tunes have been raved over by The Cramps' legendary Lux Interior and Poison Ivy through various radio shows and interviews over the years.
    Capturing the excitement that comes from discovering a spine tingling or simply "out there" record, Lux and Ivy have inspired many a generation to dig deep in the crates and uncover all kinds of strange music.
    This collection is an exotic trip into the off-kilter world of recordings, many of them independent, which sprang up all over the US during the 1950s.
