Hailing from Hawthorne, California, brothers Jeff and Steve McDonald formed the band Redd Kross (originally Red Cross) in the late ‘70s, the band name reputedly inspired by a prop from the 1973 horror film, The Exorcist. They release their first EP 'Posh Boy' in 1980 when just 13 and 17, which also featured members of Black Flag, the band they played their first shows opening for. The brothers have kept Redd Kross going through the decades, and through various line-up changes, releasing 7 studio albums and a slew of EPs and singles, as well as being busy on a number of side projects.

Forty years on and hot on the heels of their amazing 2019 album 'Beyond The Door', Third Man Records weave their magic and reissue two of their beloved 1990s albums, Phaseshifter (1993) and Show World (1997). Show World starts off with a spot on cover of The Quick’s L.A. power pop classic, 'Pretty Please Me', and sets the tone for yet another killer album by the thinking person’s good time band.
