Red Cross - Red Cross 12" [1980]


This is the first self-titled EP from Red Cross who later changed their name to Redd Kross due to legal threats with a lawsuit from a International Red Cross. The Los Angeles hardcore band included Steve and Jeff McDonald, Ron Reyes (later in Black Flag) and Greg Hetson (of Circle Jerks' fame). Later, Reyes and Hetson left the band to join Circle Jerks and Black Flag while McDonald brothers completed the new lineup on their first full-length album Born Innocent.
