The Photography Of Devorah Ostrov

3. Jeff McDonald
Redd Kross

Slims, San Francisco 1997

Here is an example of what happens when you even hint that a Redd Kross album borders on being heavy metalish...
Steve: You're thinking about that late '80s, Sunset Strip sound ...
Jeff: And I hated that kind of music!
I think for Jeff there was a Quick influence, which was a Sunset Strip influence.
Jeff: But that's like 1975.
Steve: '75/76, left over from the glitter era, just pre-punk.
Jeff: Post-New York Dolls/pre-punk rock.
Steve: Pre-Van Halen/pre-punk rock/post-New York Dolls/Sunset Strip. Which was probably a really dead period for the Sunset Strip, commercially speaking.
Jeff: New York was starting to happen. LA only had like, Sparks.
Devorah: And the Runaways.
Jeff: But they were slightly post-Sparks.
