Ain’t No Punk — addendum

In response to a recent post, indie filmmaker Jeff Krulik, co-creator of the legendary Heavy Metal Parking Lot, wrote:

“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.”
