If you have ever heard Redd Kross' "(Legend) Come On Up to Me" from the soundtrack of David Markey's Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, you may be surprised to find out it's a cover. The original was done be Backstage Pass, who some of you may remember as a completely lame early L.A. new wave band. Their original is so bad it's comical, almost like the Shaggs doing new wave.
Markey made Desperate Teenage Lovedolls on Super 8 in the 1984 and followed it up with a sequel, Lovedolls Superstar, in 1986. Both are the lowest of low budget, the first costing a whopping $250 to make. But the soundtracks are great, heavy on the Redd Kross, with contributions by White Flag, Black Flag, Gone, and a bunch of others.
