This special limited edition 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.
This RSD Black Friday release is pressed on 12" neon yellow vinyl, and features bonus tracks by both artists and exclusive unreleased content unavailable anywhere else. It must be seen AND heard to be believed.
