I’m happy to have designed and art directed these releases!
On December 7, Merge Records will make two elusive classics by California legends Redd Kross widely available for the first time!
Hot Issue contains a dozen turn-of-the-century new digs and old finds recorded by the band in Hollywood between 1980 and 2007. Available on limited-edition translucent fluorescent green Peak Vinyl, licorice black vinyl, and CD, this collection of top-quality recordings features Redd Kross rarities and focuses on the band’s most explosively creative period from the early ’90s straight through to Researching the Blues, all mastered from the original source tapes for optimal audio fidelity by Bill Inglot and Dave Schultz at d2. An energetic compilation created to be a complete play experience with unreleased and rare tracks unearthed from the Jeff McDonald archives, Hot Issue is a total must for all Redd Kross fans around the world!
Hotter than anything printed by a Hearst daily, the 12-song “Versión Especial” of Redd Kross’ Teen Babes from Monsanto is all art, no filler, direct from the source, pure from the tap. Available on CD or engraved on your choice of virgin black vinyl or limited-edition translucent pink Peak Vinyl, the album features specially designed packaging that allows you to choose between two different front covers with just a flip of the wrist! Experience vintage teenaged Redd Kross as presented by Monsanto: 100% genuine, chemically inspired brilliance fueled by processed junk food.
Pre-order these albums individually in the Merge store, or reserve both as a Peak Vinyl bundle on the cheap! Long live Redd Kross!
