Redd Kross+The Men


Off and on since 1980, Redd Kross have spanned the divides between power pop, punk, and even hardcore, bashing out art-brut rockers and reaping praise from artists as diverse as Sonic Youth and Black Flag. Now, the lineup that played on their critically acclaimed Neurotica has reunited and is releasing the all-new Researching the Blues in August. Openers the Men take a similar ramshackle aesthetic to their garage rock as the headliners, as they bash their cymbals and bleed out guitar solos in a way that made their latest, Open Your Heart, an early 2012 buzz record.
