CONTEST VIDEO #6:
In Contest Video #5 during the filming of "Li'l Art's Texas Bar-B-Q" broadcast from SXSW in Austin, we heard Jim telling Art, Huey, and Joe Nick about remembering a world before rock 'n' roll. He said he tried to make young musicians imagine what this was like. But as we hear in Contest Video #6, the Cramps didn't heed historical schooling. Lux Interior and Poison Ivy were building our musical future as they recorded their debut- a new genre near and dear to Jim's heart- PUNK! You can hear the crazed excitement and joy in his voice as Jim sings.
"Jim Dickinson & the Cramps- Red Headed Woman (Big Beat, recorded 1977, released 1981, at Sun Studio while the Cramps were recording the tracks for the Gravest Hits EP).
I have pretty much written what I have to say about Jim in the earlier postings, but let me reiterate, we'll never see another one like Jim Dickinson, he is one of immortals." (Thanks to The Hound Blog)
