Redd Kross’ ‘Neurotica’ gets new deluxe vinyl reissue via Merge, finally on streaming services
Redd Kross' great 1987 album Neurotica has been out of print for decades, and has never been on streaming services. That changes today, as the band's current label, Merge, have announced a new deluxe edition of the album, that will be out physically on June 24, and is on streaming services now.
The deluxe edition has been remastered by JJ Golden (Pearl Jam, Thee Oh Sees) and includes a bonus disc featuring 12 previously unreleased demos from the era. The double vinyl set and CD also comes with a lyrics sheet and never-before-published photos.
Preorder the deluxe edition vinyl, which comes on one turquoise LP and one orange LP in a gatefold sleeve. You can also grab other Redd Kross vinyl, including the expanded edition of their classic debut EP.
Produced by Tommy Erdelyi (aka Tommy Ramone), Neurotica includes joyous, acid-fried Redd Kross power-pop classics like "Peach Kelli Pop," "Frosted Flake," "Janus, Jeanie, and George Harrison," "Play My Song," and more. It's a trip that has aged very well, and you can stream the whole thing below.
