How To Make A Monster is the third compilation by the American punk rock band The Cramps. Comprising rare, previously-unreleased tracks, the release is a 2-CD set that includes a 28-page book with extensive liner notes by Lux Interior and Poison Ivy, as well as rare and unseen photos and flyers from their personal collection.

Contents

Content included

Disc 1 contains 1976 rehearsal material, some 1982 studio demos with Terry Graham of the Gun Club on drums, and several other unreleased studio recordings. Disc 2 contains two historic live performances of relatively poor recording quality, both from very early in their career: One at Max's Kansas City and the other at CBGB's.
