The Detroit Cobras

Sometimes a band sounds exactly like what they look like. Look at The Detroit Cobras over there. You know you are going to get something rocking with a filthy sexy bass line that'll fuel either a party or your excessive speeding. That's exactly what they deliver with the song "I Wanna Holler (But the Town's Too Small)" off their new album Baby. It's a little Elvis, a little Motown and a big scoop of grimey rock club.

I haven't heard the full album but a friend (thanks, cj) sent this track over the other day and it's been getting a lot of "play counts" ever since. The band has been around since 1994 releasing albums full of cover tunes but if the rest of Baby is as good as this track, it may finally be their day in the sunshine.

We're going to try to see them tomorrow night if we're feeling up for a late night.
