Lux Interior, singer for the legendary garage-punk band The Cramps, died Wednesday from a heart condition. The 62-year-old, born Erick Lee Purhiser, led the group with future wife Poison Ivy (Kristy Wallace) for more than 35 years. Their underground hits include “Goo Goo Muck,” “I Ain’t Nuthin’ But A Gorehound,” “Let’s Get F—ed Up,” “Eyeball In My Martini,” “Can Your Pussy Do The Dog?” and their only charting single, “Bikini Girls With Machine Guns.” Interior’s screams were so intense that director Francis Ford Coppola used them to replace Gary Oldman‘s in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Despite their obvious (and intentional) offensiveness, the group somehow scored an appearance on Beverly Hills, 90210 in the 1995 Halloween episode “Gypsies, Cramps And Fleas.” RIP, Lux.
