The Detroit Cobras UK debut is a septet of obscure covers recast in Detroit garage rock. Ex-butcher and erotic dancer Rachel Nagy provides lead vocal screams and grunts with panache and gusto. Imagine Chrissie Hyde meets Karen O and you’re close enough for jazz. ‘Seven Easy Pieces’ is a bluesy, soulful, rocking mix that evokes the motor city sound of old with ease and charm, immediacy and timelessness.
