“I interviewed Tex Rubinowitz for the documentary PUNK THE CAPITAL. It was a three and a half hour interview. . . . Tex had a lot to say, including the fact that he was eating at Bethesda Tastee Diner with the Cramps after a Psyche Delly show and they were jawing back and forth and Tex claims to have pointed at Lux and said (which I believe): “You aint no punk you punk.”
“And however many months later, the rest is history.”
