The Cramps and The Mutants: The Napa State Tapes

Type: New Blu-Ray


On June 13, 1978, the legendary garage punk band The Cramps went to play Napa State Mental Hospital in the afternoon along with The Mutants, an eclectic septet of art school punks from nearby San Francisco. Also in the van was seminal Bay Area collective Target Video, there to capture the show using one of the first video cameras available to the public, democratizing a medium controlled by mainstream media outlets.
