Formed in 1979 in Los Angeles, 45 Grave was a horror punk band that emerged during the LA punk movement. They created, along with Christian Death, their own hybrid subgenre of horror punk and goth rock. The original lineup consisted of Dinah Cancer on vocals, Paul Cutler on guitar, Rob Ritter (also known as Rob Graves) on bass, and Don Bolles of The Germs on drums. In 2005, to commemorate its 25th anniversary, 45 Grave reformed with an all new lineup, Dinah Cancer being the single remaining member from any previous incarnations.
"The Midnight Creeps are one of the most authentically sleazy bands around, at least musically. They are the sound of rough sex in a back alley, of a feast of snakes, of that last gratuitous kick in the belly when you're already down." -Sleazegrinder
