Poison Ivy

This article deals with a member of punk rock band, The Cramps. For the article on the plant see Poison ivy .

Poison Ivy is the stage name of Kristy Wallace, singer guitarist with punk rock band The Cramps. The band was formed when Lux Interior[?] and Poison Ivy met during a college course on art and shamanism.

The name originated in a dream and was initially "Poison Ivy Rorschach", the Rorschach referring to the Rorschach ink-blot test, however over the years it has been contracted to plain and simple "Poison Ivy". Her stage persona is best defined by as being the bad-girl vixen from next door; this is underlined by the sexually explicit cover-art which she has frequently posed for the band's albums.
