"Redd Blood Cells" : THE WEEKEND MIX
You ever hear the one about Steven McDonald from the L.A. punk-pop band Redd Kross, and how he couldn't get tickets to a sold out White Stripes concert, so he went home and spent the afternoon laying down bass tracks to every song on the otherwise bassless 3rd album by The White Stripes, "White Blood Cells," sent it to Jack & Meg, and then, BOOM, Bob's your uncle? Jack & Meg love it, get him into the show and allow McDonald to post the album on his website for no more than 60,000 downloads? NO? Well, let me tell ya...
Steven McDonald couldn't get tickets to a sold out....oh nevermind.
Not sure if that story has any holes, but I like it the way I heard it.
Here is "REDD BLOOD CELLS" for those of you who weren't one of the 60,000.
