Goth/Alt/Nerd of the Week #12: Poison Ivy Rorschach

Poison Ivy Rorschach (born Kristy Marlana Wallace) was the guitarist/manager of legendary rockabilly/rock n roll punks The Cramps. Her distinctive guitar sound borrowed heavily from early electric guitar pioneers such as Link Wray, filtered through rockabilly, surf rock, R’N’B, and all kinds of assorted esoterica.

She provided the perfect foil to her husband, Cramps frontman Lux Interior, right up to his untimely passing in 2009.
