Description by

This special split maxi-single pairs pop-culture icon William Shatner’s mind-blowing interpretation of The Cramps punk classic “Garbageman” (a cover that Rolling Stone hailed as a “growling and expertly melodramatic version”), teamed with the original 1980 recording that inspired it—performed by the legendary Cramps themselves and produced by Alex Chilton! Shatner’s “Garbageman” (produced by Osaka Popstar’s John Cafiero) is the second single from the #1 Billboard charting album “Dr. Demento Covered in Punk”—out now. Features bonus tracks by both artists, and exclusive unreleased content unavailable anywhere else!

Taking it a step further, Demented Punk commemorates the culture-clash with amazing new front cover art by Cramps illustrator Stephen Blickenstaff. Created in homage to his original 1980s “Bad Music for Bad People” cover illustration (shown on the back of this release), the new piece beams in the likeness of the legendary Shatner in place of the late great Cramps front man Lux Interior. Must be seen AND heard to be believed…
