Redd Kross with Shawn Mrazek Lives!
In the prolific 34 years that span opening for Black Flag at a middle school graduation party to 2012's "Researching the Blues" on Merge Records, Redd Kross have charted a rock and roll journey from ahead of their time to timeless.
Formed by brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald in the LA suburb of Hawthorn, CA before they were even old enough to drive, their seemingly preternatural ability to connect their punk rock roots with their devoted covers and pop culture ballads has shaped and influenced all manners of underground music.
Redd Kross have toured with the likes of The Posies, The Lemonheads, and Sonic Youth, and with Thurston Moore and Jonathan Poneman of Sub Pop Records both siting works like “Teen Babes from Monsanto”, “Born Innocent” and “Neurotica” as enormously significant, it's impossible to overlook or resist their intuitive and eclectic career.
Shawn Mrazek Lives!
Under the banner Shawn Mrazek Lives!, the Vancouver veteran releases his ingeniously titled solo debut, Thought He Was Dead, a boisterous, breathless, and white-hot collection of songs teeming with manic life and loads of heart. Mrazek's vocals have earned (deserving) comparisons to Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, with offbeat, zealous delivery and his music’s electric heart.
