Product Description

First album of all new originals in 25 years! "Back To Detroit" is a mixture of classic Nikki and the Corvettes sound and all of the great powerpop and punk rock that preceded it and that it inspired. From the Chuck Berry/MC5 driven title track "Back To Detroit" to the pure power pop of "I've Got A Heartbreak" , the summertime sound of "Just Can't Say" and the '77 NY punk swagger of "So, Kiss Me", Back to Detroit offers just what Nikki's die hard and new fans have been waiting for...high energy rock and roll! Available now from Dollar Record Records!

Review

(Every song has a killer hook) Gleeful sassy girl garage pop rock and roll. 20 years before the Donnas there was Nikki Corvette. Who? After being dredged up through a severe underground fan-base (especially in Japan), Nikki resurrects herself with this new release, drinking from the same bottle she did back when Jimmy Carter was in office. At a time when the Runaways were trying to be tough and The Go Go s sold out to the color pink, Nikki and the Corvettes were just being themselves, plundering the fun of 60 s girl group rock, teenage love with a dose of Motor City punk, foreshadowing all things to come in the form of The Muffs, 5,6,7,8s, Donnas, Bobbyteens, Spastics, and just about every girl garage band to ever use a Hello Kitty sticker as a coaster for their PBR. --kzsu

Longtime Angeleno Nikki Corvette's relocation to her Detroit hometown last year was a major blow to this city's underground pop-punk scene, but at least she left us with some nice consolation prizes. Her exodus inspired the catchy title track of her Back to Detroit CD (Dollar Record Records), where she declares, "Hollywood dreams are making me sad," against Travis Ramin's joltin' Chuck Berry style lead guitar and Miss Georgia Peach's soulfully groovy call-&-response backing vocals. Corvette who got her start in the late '70s as an early rival to the Go-Go's and Blondie juices up her classic girl-group hooks with more Ramones-y power than ever on Back to Detroit with such rocking tunes as "Tokyo Boy" and the orally fixated "Lipstick Letters" and "So Kiss Me." --Falling James, LA Weekly

If you know me at all, you probably don't even need to read this review. You probably already know that I'm going to rave about the wicked catchy riffs and melodies, the coquettish almost-bad-girl lyrics, the super tight band and, above all, the infectiously joyful vocal stylings of the one and only Nikki Corvette. What you might not expect is for me to tell you that this brand new collection of instant pop classics is every bit as enjoyable as Nikki's debut cd from more than 20 years ago. That might sound like sacrilege, but, hey, it's only rock'n'roll, y'know? Don't get all worked up. This is super fun, super sweet pop music, as only a Travis Ramin led band can produce. And with a stellar line-up of Ramin on guitar, Miss Georgia Peach on bass and Johnny O'Halloran on drums this is as hot a band as you're going to find for this style of music. What could have been a huge disappointment, given Nikki's legacy, is instead a massive success. --bmo

26 years after Nikki Corvette's debut LP, she delivers the perfect "comeback" album! Several of the tracks, like "Tokyo Boy" and "I've Got a Heartache", sound like something recorded via an early 80's time warp! And that's just fine with me!

Though this material may sound derived from another era, it isn't a cheap "retro" gimmick. This is the REAL sound of late 70's and early 80's New Wave (the powerpop and punkpop variety) living and breathing in the 21st century! Others may try to emulate this sound, or this era, but NIKKI is the real thing!

Most comeback efforts fall short, but not this one! This release is every bit the equal to Nikki Corvette's debut LP, which was (at the time of this review) released 28 years ago! I find it quite incredible that she has somehow maintained the same energy and songwriting style after all these years!

Fans of the Go-Go's, Josie Cotton, and early 80's New Wave/punkpop will love this CD!
