Music today has been MC5 – Kick Out The Jams (1969). Dig those guitar sounds! Recorded live in Detroit this album featured Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith (died 1994) on the guitars, Rob Tyner on vocals (died 1991), Michael Davis on bass (died 2012) and Dennis Thompson on drums. It’s a Detroit classic, I mean, who releases their first album live? The reason I posted this today is because surviving member Wayne Kramer has announced the first MC5 album of new songs in 51 years. Dennis Thompson plays the drums but only Wayne Kramer will be on the tour to support the album.
