Redd Kross has always been one of my favorite bands to work with – both sonically and visually…
The work Steve & Jon put into this re-release was mind-bending, going through old outtakes from my 1987 photo sessions, too finding what till now were thought lost audio tracks. Remastering everything, a serious labor of love and a reissue done right!
“Merge Records is thrilled to release the 35th anniversary edition of Neurotica, the 1987 power pop and alternative rock opus by Redd Kross, on June 24, 2022. The reissue contains the original album, remastered by JJ Golden (Pearl Jam, Thee Oh Sees), as well as 12 previously unreleased demos from the era (rediscovered recently in the archives of the band’s original A&R guy, Geoffrey Weiss).”
“Today we are ecstatic to officially announce the 35th-anniversary edition reissue of our beloved NEUROTICA. And baby it’s coming down FAST. For the purist and newbies alike, we’ve gone back to the original master mixes done by producer Tommy Erdelyi (Tommy Ramone) RIP and had them remastered by JJ Golden of Golden Mastering. With an outstanding double disc layout by long-time co-conspirator Jon Krop and with many never before seen John Scarpati images. Also included is the original Neurotica demos recorded at Spinhead Studios by the late Phil Newman.”
