Now the very idea of garage rock versions of classic Detroit techno tracks sounds like it shouldn't work on paper. How can synthetic electronic soul translate to the rock n roll format??? Well with the Dirtbombs on the case they make it sound fucking effortless and I think the reason why is this is all about DETROIT and a love of the city's native sounds. A sound that pulsates from Motown through MC5 and into Underground Resistance and beyond. Music is the heartbeat of the city and The Dirtbombs come from that same space of Urban Decay - The Motor City. Perhaps this isn't such a huge surprise when you consider Mick Collins of the band (formerly of the Gories!) actually did a split record with Detroit House master Kenny Dixon Junior. Hearing their versions of true early classics like Cybotron's 'Cosmic Cars', A Number Of Names' 'Sharivari' (Collins even does a great pseudo-German accent), Innercity's 'Good Life' etc. was great fun on first listen and now going back for a second helping I think it's absolutely inspired. Fans of both the band and those that hold the original tunes close to their hearts should check this out. Totally Recommended.
