    Default REDD KROSS = FUN FUN FUN

    I'm not a massive Redd Kross fan by any means, but don't ignore this add in all the Aphex Twin/Goldfrapp excitement. Should be one of the most fun sets of the weekend...it almost makes up for losing Madness.

    Two favs...
    Jimmy's Fantasy (with a very young Jason Lee as Jimmy.)


    Yesterday Once More (Carpenters cover)
    Bastards disabled embedding

    Clip from 1982, playing a Partridge Family song...


    ...later they would make a movie with David Cassidy...


    For this kind of thing, I would prefer a Jellyfish reunion, but thank you, thank you thank you GV!

    Redd Kross is so awesome. Plus, they are a guaranteed Danny Devito sighting. He was rocking out to them at Detour.

    Perhaps Anna Waronker will be there and the harsh desert environment will persuade her to not be too terribly layered clothinwise.

    I called it senior year. Though Charlotte is cute, Cathy Valentine was and still is the hottest go go.

    Ok. I didn't think so. The lead singer is pretty femme looking though.

    Redd Kross is pretty fun live. I saw them back in the 90's, although I can't remember was they sound like. I will be browsing some Youtubes.

    edit: ok. fuckin awesome guitar riffs. More Youtubes, please.

    Just for fun...trailers for the Lovedoll movies. Redd Kross appeared as a band as well as acting, and I think at least one of the brothers helped write them.

    I had never heard of this band until yesterday. Have they been relevant in the last 10-20 years? Watched a couple vids with an open mind, wasn't really impressed. Reminds me of Love & Rockets in that I don't understand the praise. Maybe you had to be around when they were in their prime?

    I'm actually more excited about Redd Kross being added than Aphex Twin. I remember seeing them probably 14 or 15 years ago as an opening act and they were fantastic!

    This add made me so happy that I started almost laughing/crying/hyperventilating in hysterics.

    I love Redd Kross. They rock. And I love me some rock. Anyone who doesn't get it clearly wasn't there and by "there" I mean the for the budding of power-pop-punk (yeah, I know the popular radio version of the genre needs work, but it kicked ass then and some bands still do).

    Redd Kross are seminal in this regard. Their first album was out before all of them had even made it into high school (in 1980 no less!) and they had the post-modern lyrical thing down as teenagers. If you take a look at one of those family trees of the beginnings of the LA punk scene and you'll get a sense of their place in the process.

    They've always been too ahead of their time for their own good.

    Anyway, it's nice when people stop by a thread, take the time to fart, and publicly write the whole thing off. Maybe these so-called music fans should try researching a bit more since their negative opinions ultimately serve no other purpose than to dis the band you are talking about, their fan base, and the Coachella organizers.

    Oh yeah, and, I guess, Danny DeVito. It's just not right, I tell ya.

    I guess I'm just glad they won't be hanging with me and Danny, joyfully bouncing to the sounds of Annie's Gone, One Chord Progression, or perhaps an excellent cover of Deuce.

    Hell, I'll be bouncing joyously to any and all of it.
