Historically speaking this city knows as much about making garage rock as Henry Ford knew about makin’ cars. And where our legends paved the route, contemporaries have picked up the torch and blazed through, one broken guitar string at a time, dive bar by dive bar; the Detroit legacy lives on. And this mix truly comes from Detroit; I’m not just talking location.
As is Detroit’s modus operandi, the creation of this playlist became a collective project, as to which I could never take full credit. Roughs were mastered and rushed from Tubor studios, bands consulted each other as to what track to submit, album art went from its draft stages to final polished projects, and the intensely personal (and comical) cover art for the mix was penned.
Why all this team work? Well it was twofold: for the love of our city and the creative enterprises we sustain here. There is something similar about the concept of GET BENT and what we do here in Detroit; it’s all grassroots, by-us-for-us, and all fueled by the love of rock and roll. And there is nothing more beautiful than seeing everyone rally together for what brought us together and keeps us together.
Featuring tracks all recorded within the past year, pop open a cold one, set that speaker volume to max, and get ready to hear Rock City’s rabble.
