The Cramps' major-label period proved to be brief, with Cal-punk indie label Epitaph inking a deal with the group to release 1997's "Big Beat from Badsville", which featured the same lineup as "Flamejob". In 2001, Lux Interior and Poison Ivy Rorschach celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Cramps by taking the matters of record-making into their own hands; they revived the long-dormant Vengeance label and reissued their entire post-I.R.S. album catalog (except for "Flamejob") on expanded and remastered cd's and colored vinyl lp's. A new Cramps album followed in 2003, "Fiends of Dope Island", which (of course) featured yet another personal change, with Chopper Franklin becoming the band's latest bassist. And with the Cramps continuing their unholy mission well into the 21st century, they offered their fans a look back with 2004's "How to Make a Monster", a collection of rare live material and demos.

As the Cramps approached their 20th anniversary, they showed no signs of changing their signature kitschy psychobilly style. In so many ways, "Big Beat From Badsville" is no different from its immediate predecessor, "Flamejob", or any of the group's other records -- it's a collection of campy songs about sex, horror, violence, leather and perversion. Sonically, it's slightly rawer than "Flamejob", and the group's performances are as inspired here as they are on any of their other '90s albums. And the songs are uniformly good, even if there aren't any standouts. So, "Big Beat From Badsville" is the kind of record that fans will be pleased with, but newcomers will just wonder what the big deal is. Allmusic
