detroit cobras Baby (LP, £15.75)label: rough trade
One of the earliest groups to emerge from the Detroit garage rock scene, The Detroit Cobras developed a reputation as the Midwest's finest (and most distinctive) cover band - while the band members devoted themselves to performing other people's material rather than recycling established hits, The Detroit Cobras dug deep into the well of vintage R&B and primitive rock & roll sides, building an individual identity out of lost classics from the past which they modified to fit their swaggering aural personality. ‘Baby’ is the third studio album by The Detroit Cobras. It was originally released in November 2004. It features 12 covers of R&B obscurities and one original song, ‘Hot Dog (Watch Me Eat)’.
