The Gotobeds "Definitely Not a Redd Kross EP"

The Gotobeds
"Definitely Not A Redd Kross EP"
Chunklet Industries
Released: November 1, 2017

In case you don't own Red Cross EP from 1980 on Posh Boy, you need to obtain. 

The six song EP must have effected the Pittsburgh band The Gotobeds as much as it did me.

At age 14, this record quite literally blew my mind. I have listened to that EP hundreds of times. Red Cross obviously had to change the name of their band after those early releases ("Born Innocent" is obviously also mandatory, as well as most records they released later in their career, but you know that already).

The tribute they pay to this punk rock classic is sweet. Pretty straightforward covers, so you know, I love covers and love the original so I say thank you for this. 

1980 was 37 years ago. 

Thank you Redd Kross. Thank you Gotobeds.

Even love the inner label Posh Boy design tribute!
