Song 48: “Ballad of a Lovedoll,” Redd Kross.
You think you know indie film? You don’t. In 1984, the band Redd Kross helped put together “Desperate Teenage Lovedolls,” shot on Super 8, about a couple of girls who run away from home to form a rock band. Red Kross got George Harrison and Ringo Starr to show up in the movie – that’s how cool they were (and still are: they’re still making music). Oh, and the other thing about Redd Kross: they were one of the first bands to loudly champion yesterday’s Shonen Knife.
Basically, very cool dudes all the way around.
