VOODOO IDOLS – We dig Nixon / Dead Air 7”

VeeDee Records – Tampa (1982)

Butchie Necropolis – guitar

Hughie Whoopie – drums

Johnny Yen – vocals

Vah Metz – bass

Merlo – sax

Second single by these Cramps fans. I much prefer the first single, but this one is more sought-after by record collectors. Fuck You, We Dig Nixon is the better song. I doubt there’s any truth to the rumor that Richard Nixon was listening to this on his deathbed, but it is a spirited (possibly sincere) defense of our former president. Dead Air is a song about some radio show or station in the Tampa area. People used to get worked up about the radio back then.
