Most music aficionados know the mighty MC5 for their “Kick out the jams, motherf*****s!” rallying cry and from the folklore surrounding the band’s fiery rise and fall. True historians however, understand that the 5 were not just a quintet of hard rocking musical revolutionaries, but an entity grounded in precise musicianship and armed with a penchant for sonic exploration.
Their music was an amalgam of psychedelia, R&B, jazz, and everything else available at the time, and it provided inspiration for the countless artists following in their footsteps. Detroit’s star-spangled bad boys were avant-rock long before Yes and King Crimson, and without any of the artsy pretension.
Thus, when surviving members Michael Davis, Wayne Kramer, and Dennis Thompson reconvened in 2003/2004 as DKT/MC5, the focus was on celebrating their music with a roster of guest performers, all of whom bore divergent creative pedigrees. The result was an acclaimed world tour, all paying tribute to a glorious musical time past, but with modern day flavor. For 2005, DKT returned with a similar plan, but a different line-up, each yielding even greater results. Read full review HERE
