One of our favorite local sludge beasts, Ripped Krampus, seems to be on the verge of rebirth.As you might know, the original Krampus line-up was made up of Dusty and Teets from the Puffy Areolas and Mandy on drums. One of their first gigs was in the Ear Bleed Crypt playing with Yellow Crystal Star, the Ear is the Brain, Jason Zeh and Cryptids. But with the resurgence of the Puffies Starship burning down assorted grimy dives in the Cleveland/Columbus/Detroit axis, the Krampus had to take a back seat for a few months. However, now Chilean record label collective Thantaloop has expressed interest in releasing some classic Krampus jams and they’re back to their old tricks. Look for some Ripped Krampus on Thantaloop, Layway Butch and Ear Bleed Records soon.
