Another record that’s been blogged all over but since it’s Really Red you know it needs to be just everywhere, including this blog. And correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t they still way underrated? Maybe cause you couldn’t pin point them as a pure HC or punk rock band considering the variety in their discography?Â Not nearly up there with their first “Crowd Control” or their fourth “New Strings…” but way better then their third live EP “Despise Moral Majority” and a classic in it’s own right. Both songs shreds and the sleeve is just fantastic. I miss the rare insert so if anyone got a scan to send I would more then grateful.
I love Rollerblading to this record.
Official Really Red discography CD and 2xLP coming soon on Alternative Tentacles.
Good post, though I think you could have stepped up the writing a bit. The lyric “not just survival I need” is a veritable invitation to critique the “fascistic ‘nature v. man’ topos” that’s I’ve read is pervasive in the contemporary scene. I would write the critique myself but I am busy documenting the impact of robot literature on the minds of teenagers during the inter-war years. (No offense to anyone, I simply suffer wiseguy DNA!)
Not sure if it’s the rip or my shitty headphones but the guitars have never sounded louder (ie. better). Thanks.
Your comments always make me giggle in awe Stig. Thanks.
THANKS for really red. first blog i have ever seen write about them!!!
heres ya insert.. looks crappy because I have no scanner and no skills, but its not a great insert anyway :P
Ha ha thanks but I pass on that one :). I shouldÂ´ve been more specific; scanned in 300dpi.
The Touch & Go review for this is hilarious. TV and DS kinda nail it.
This is probably my favorite site after Wiki. You mentioned RR is all over blogs… Umm, where did you mean? These guys are as hard to find for me nowadays (maybe harder) than Nig Heist, the two I’ve been trying to track down for some time now.
love New Strings, looking forward to giving this a blast!
Coming soon to Alternative Tentacles, Really Red!! 3 LPs and a double CD coming late 2014 or early 2015. Thanks for your support!
I was a 15 yo kid in Houston going to see Really Red and everyone starting in about 1979. Really Red – had they been from any other other city – woulda been huge. But they were ours and we loved them with all our hearts.
