A truly lost gem - sticky fun

"Having acquired this from one of those deadbeat music clubs in the early nineties that I couldn't stand, currently I should extend my apologies, as I understand this CD is out of print, too bad for you. I haven't given this a spin in a few years, as I remember it being a good listen, but not a great one, well my opinion has changed, just a sheer slice of power-pop heaven. The McDonald boys never replicated this 'major label' release, sure it had little of no airplay and I imagine they were unceromoniusly dumped by their label after this, but who give a F?
11 tracks of great rock & roll - dig the opening excuberance of 'Faith Healer' coincidentaly the much missed 'Big Dipper' have a killer cut of the same name. Followed by serveral toe-tapping, head boppin' tunes of 70's kitsch and they pay homage to Asian hipsters - Shonen Knife, I love when bands namedrop other bands, it always seems to work -check out Tullycraft.
A truly remarkable album from 1990 - see music did exist like this well before the bloated grunge era. Tape a copy if you have to!
Must have for "Annie's Gone" alone

"This album turned Redd Kross on their head. While it's not my favorite album of theirs (that would be "Phaseshifter"), the songs tread the line between bubblegum (literally in "Bubblegum Factory") and rock so well it has to be heard to understand. Tragically, history has made Redd Kross one of those bands that your favorite bands all listened to (and ripped off) and not the one we all had a chance to enjoy. Grab this, grab "Phaseshifter", grab "Neurotica", and get with a band that grew up making rock great."
