According to this, the Cramps are going on tour. There are certain bands, like the Cramps, that are unflinchingly overt for so long that they become advanced in a way. They aren't fully advanced, of course, but they are not simply overt. That doesn't mean that staying overt for a long time makes you advanced overt. Patti Smith is still overt, for instance, but not advanced overt. This is tricky territory, and I'm trying to sort it out myself. It might just come down to the fact that the Cramps are fun, and Patti Smith is not so fun. Robert Pollard fits into the advanced-overt category, I think. I hear that he is quite the rocker onstage, complete with leg kicks. His music is pretty overt, but does he really belong in the same category as, say, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs?
This seems like a good time to introduce a new term into the advanced lexicon: the dime-store weirdo, also known as the put-on. The people in this category have nothing to offer at all. They are overt, but they are also untalented and unoriginal. Say what you will about the Cramps or Guided By Voices, but they are certainly not dime-store weridos.
