The Cramps - The Fillmore, San Francisco, CA, USA - 31.12.1987 (DVD)

Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:

This show professes to be an "official" release, but clearly is a bootleg. The reason I believe this is because I can find no other outlets or sources for this DVD other than the one responsible for putting it out. It is produced on a DVD-R. It is a single camera audience recording. The audio is off the camera, not off the board. There is no bar code on the cover art. There are chapter stops every five minutes rather than on the actual break between songs - rather amateurish. The web site that is selling this appears to be hokey and dubious. Some place called Vampiros Video Vault presents the release. seems to be the sole distributor. This is the only link I can find related to the release. The DVD is advertised as The Fillmore Theater in San Francisco 1988 New Years Eve show. Actually, it was New Years Eve 1987, although technically the Cramps didn't come on stage until after midnight, which would make it New Years Day 1988, not New Years Eve. It appears this is someone's attempt to keep this from being shared so they can profit from it by claiming that it is official or whatever.

  1. I was at this show. It was the first time I saw the Cramps, I caught Lux's rhinestone belt, then some little punkrock girl immediately kicked me in the crotch and stole it from me... lol. All she had to do was ask. :)
