reddy kilowatt

This hyperactive little 2 minute pop terror is, as far as I know, the only song that Reddy Kilowatt (the band, not the guy pictured above) released. It's from the Just for a Day compilation from 2000, which also contains Gentle Tuesday's "I Keep on Doin' It", an exemplar of late-90s/early-00s Euro discopop.

Reddy Kilowatt had a history (they were from California and associates of Majestic), but mostly it was just musical crib death. And that's what I've long been a proponent of. Blister up the world for one song or one 45—the briefest huff of time you can muster—and then singe yourself out of it.
