John Scott's Staff Pick: December 15, 2022

What’s up Sorry State readers? I hope everyone has had a nice week. It’s been cold and rainy here in Raleigh these last couple days. Winter has definitely arrived. This week I found myself listening to this Cramps 7” I picked up at the store a while ago, especially the B-side. Don’t get me wrong I definitely enjoy listening to Drug Train, but their cover of I Can’t Hardly Stand It on the flip side is really what does it for me. This song has such an infectious guitar riff that always gets stuck in my head after I hear it. Lux’s vocals also just fit right in perfectly as well. The Cramps really do this song justice and I usually listen to it a couple times in a row whenever I play it. I also really enjoy Love Me on the B-side as well. I think it serves as a nice precursor. Honestly, you could play just about any Cramps song around me and I’ll be happy.
