BW's PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 18 AUG. 2012

LA-based band Redd Kross, led by brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald, has endured with various line-ups since they officially formed in 1980. After 15 years since their last studio album release (Show World), Redd Kross has brought forth a killer power pop album, Researching the Blues - a perfect inclusion in this summer's beach bag (along with the new King Tuff self-titled record), out on Merge Records. Reunited with guitarist Robert Hecker and including Muffs' drummer Roy McDonald. It's a record that's filled with varied-style pop nuggets. The McDonald Boys are back!!
