Electric hallucinations

TEEN BABES FROM MONSANTO was Redd Kross’ first great record. It hasn’t been available for years and you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for a re-issue. There was an Australian tour CD with the MONSANTO songs released in 1992. That’s about as easy to find as the original TEEN BABES record from 1984. Watch ebay if you’ve got a few twenties to spare.

The Rolling Stones “Citadel” sounds like it was written just for Redd Kross to cover. Bowie’s “Savior Machine” & Kiss’ “Deuce” are almost as good. The Stooges “Ann” and The Shangri-La’s "Heaven Only Knows" are fun but don’t match the originals. There was one original song on the record, a new version of “Linda Blair” from Redd Kross first LP. (I fixed the Linda Blair link!)

The only place I had ever heard “Blow You A Kiss In The Wind” was on reruns of Bewitched. Thanks to Youtube, here it is by Pandora Spocks and also by Boyce & Hart.

Hi. You have Blow You a Kiss twice, instead of Linda. This is a great site. I really love it.
