Of course, Redd Kross were totally amazing at Amoeba last night. What you might not have expected is that they’d play for about an hour! The set was heavy on the supremely catchy and totally ripping new songs (“Downtown,” “Uglier”) which will grow on you like fungus, but dug back to the very oldest and rawest cuts (“Linda Blair,” “St. Lita Ford Blues”) for the old timers who saw the McDonald brothers when they were teenagers. Me? I’m in the middle somewhere, having discovered them on the Neurotica (“Frosted Flake”) tour when they played a free lunchtime show at UCLA.

StereoGum : Album of the Week!

“Among the 10 songs here, not one is anything less than searingly catchy. The hooks are utterly shameless, like early-’70s bubblegum, and that can’t be an accident. These guys know exactly what they’re doing, and we’re lucky that they’ve decided to do it again. So even if it’s utterly and completely out of step with 2012 indie, Researching The Blues arrives right on time”. - StereoGum – album of the week
