The Cramps - "1976 Demo Session W/ Girl Drummer Miriam" (Bootleg LP, 19??)

Happy New Year to you all White Trash Soulsters out there!
Hope this season be the best in your lives til the next one. Not many time ago, i was ranting 'bout Miriam Linna's drum pounding for the early Cramps. I offered some things and i asked if anyone by you was sitting on a demo session she did with them, that produced not by any other but Richard Robinson, mostly known as the man behind the board for the Flamin' Groovies masterpiece, "Teenage Head".
A very cool bloke from France named Jean Philippe, was hearing upon my wishes and answered today with this (full scans included)!
A million thanks mate! I am truly now "an eternally grateful bastard"!
So, the very first blog entry for 2011 is by the Cramps, featuring M. Linna on traps.
It doesn't get more primitive than this!

    Hey, thanks for stopping by dropping this info, but i'm a little bit confused. I don't have this book but based on information Miriam gave us through her blog, she recorded with the Cramps just one demo and that's with Robinson behind the board. Oh and the tracks here seem to me at least to be the same with those on the officially released Cramps "How to Make a Monster" CD... Don't know mate... Check out for yourself here:

  3. Primitive!! How great to hear this with Miriam! Thanks Mihaleez (& Jean-Philippe), and happy rockin' new year to you. Keep up the good & sick work.

    By the way, I saw you were lookin' for "Whipe Your Booty" by Andre Williams.. I can upload it for you if you're interested, although the encoding is only in 128kbps (all I've been able to find a long time ago).

    Cheers,
    Ian

  4. Ian! Welcome back mate! I always check on your space and since was a long time til your last post, i thought that maybe you've quit Boogie Disease... Thankfully not! Don't bother for the small bit rate, I'll buy it anyway, but I'd like to have a first listen! So when you can, please send me the link.

    Keep the rocks rollin' mate!

  5. It sounds like... GROOVY! I'll send you a link soon by email.
    About The Boogie Disease, it's been quite dead for a long time because of my job that made me very busy, but I'm gonna give it a new birth for 2011! Believe me when I say rock 'n roll is here to stay.
    See ya!

  6. Love your blog! Has turned me on to some really great stuff. Hate to ask, but can you upload this Cramps disc somewhere else? Rapidshare isn't playing nice for me.

    Thanks again and keep it up!

  7. Hey Anonymous. Thanks for the kind words. it's not easy to re-upload things, especially on such high quality. What are the problems you're experiencing with RS? I may have a solution. Otherwise, I'll do a re-upload on a different host.
    Cheers

  8. if you check "How to Make a Monster" you will find out that this are 1976 home demos... I guess Miriam did not had a copy when she was typing her blog... or did mix it up... when they did record with Richard Robinson in June 1977 they could play better!

  11. Please let the lad posting on March 2, 2012 he is incorrect. The early live tracks are on How to Make a Monster are obviously NOT the Richard Robinson demos-- how could they be, they're live recordings! The RR studio tracks are indeed on this album. The tracks were recorded by Richard at Bell Studio in June 1977. I guess I would know- and so would Richard, who lives here in New York. Rather than make anonymous claims, why not just ask? Best wishes, Miriam http://www.kicksville66.blogspot.com
