Trash is Neat Volume One



Trash is neat is a series of cd (and soon to be DVD) compilations put together by a member of the Stay Sick Cramps Yahoo group. Volume One is made up of bootleg live versions of songs The Cramps never really got around to recording on legit albums (during the 2 guitar era).

As the cover above says, all the material is taken from 1977 to 1984. Volume One was limited to 30 copies and mailed out to various members of the Stay Sick Group. Just recently, I noticed someone sold their copy on ebay and it went for well over a 100 dollars. A 100 dollars for a CD-R! That's totally crazy. So here it is in all its glory.

Thanks go out to MondoSean for all his hard work on the series. Volume 4 should be out any week now. This might be a good time to join the Stay Sick Group if you want more info. I'll post volume 2 (Songs We Taught the Bass Player) and volume 3 (bands covering The Cramps) sometime soon.

There used to be a Trash is Neat website, but I'm not sure its around anymore. Do a search for it online, some sites still pop up!

  1. Thanks, this looks awesome. It is a shame the Cramps got caught up in those lawsuits with the IRS record label, they could have released even more great tunes then they did.
    STay Sick!

  2. Thanks for puttin' this up there...AND loved yr epic tale of rescuing the Mad Daddy "asititates" from certain doom...or at least another lifetime of collecting dust on the shelf of someone who has zero interest in 'em.

    And: while I'm typing this, do you have a comp called "Inner City Dog Food?" I'd heard that it was a bootleg pressed from a tape the Cramps played before their sets, but haven't seen the album since I lost my only copy to an angry girlfriend....
