Redd Kross: Is there anybody out there?

So 13 milion people have a blog, and 39 million people say that they read blogs. That's an average of 3 readers per blog. That's also highy optimistic, I think.

My first punk rock album was a copy of a copy of a copy of "Posh Hits" featuring the destructive guitar stylings of The Black Nuns, TSOL, Dead Kennedy's, Black Flag, and one of my personal favorites Red Cross, who had to change their name to Redd Kross after a company that claims to save lives sued the teenagers who pretty much invented surf punk. Anyway, check out the interview (and some GREAT music) with Steven McDonald. Annette's Got the Hits! Their later stuff is very different, getting into a post-Nirvana sound in Jimmy's Fantasy. Steve McDonald, the bassist, went on to record much-needed bass tracks for the White Stripes and released Redd Blood Cells on the internet. I'm still trying to track down the original mp3's. Let me know where to find them!
