RIP Alex Chilton.

The revered guitarist and singer best known for his work with Big Star .... BUT also the producer of the first Cramps album - Songs The Lord Taught Us.

The brooding ambience created by Alex (with a little help from Lux, of course) had me hooked as a youngster still living at home in Kent.
The simplicity of the songs meant as a novice I could play along and imagine what it would feel like to be in the kind of band I wanted to form.

This album taught me to play guitar.
