NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #60 ~ 03-14-15]


“The dances that went on there and the clothes that people wore then, in the early sixties, were just the wildest, the absolute wildest,” recalled Lux. “It was like a science fiction comic book, wild and bizarre and nothing to do with Pat Boone and all that stuff. Places away from the cultural centres, like northern California or the South or the Midwest, is where it was the most extreme. Those were the places where people weren’t afraid of doing something that wasn’t in vogue or the new trend or whatever. I think that’ll always be the case.”

Inspired by his fleeting glimpse of glamour as personified by the Ramblers, Erick found himself drawn to the noise and excitement of the local hops. “I had to stand out and look in the windows, but there were these girls, just the sexiest girls that you’ve ever seen in the tightest clothes and the one great dance was the Bug. I thought it was the greatest one ever,’ cos they’d just do all this stuff, they’d move around and touch themselves all over, searching themselves as if they had a bug on them, just like a cat or something, and they would just be grabbing it from every place they shouldn’t have been, and then finally they’d grab it, and they’d throw it on the person next to them and then that girl would start doing her dance – oh, man. It was kind of a dance; it was more like a conniption fit, but wow, a very sexy dance.”

– Dick Porter, Journey To The Center Of The Cramps
