Motor city rockers The Detroit Cobras have been playing a raw and sultry brand of rock and roll for a while now. Their previous release, ‘7 Easy Pieces‘, was an excellent reworking of some forgotten tunes. ‘Cha Cha Twist’ is a song that has all the familiarity of the old rock’n’roll sound and a brightness that gives it a satisfying edge.
