Detroit Cobras "Cha Cha Twist"

Biography

If you went to high school in COOLVILLE U.S.A., then the Detroit Cobras would have played at your prom.

Crawling out from the weed-choked lots of the once proud town, The Detroit Cobras whip out ass-shaking anthems to good times, wild times, and the high and lows of L-U-V; you best believe it and you best not mess with it. Blurring the lines between R&B and R&R and soul, the ... Read more in Amazon's Detroit Cobras Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Stretching out in the studio like never before, and including contributions from top line players like Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound) the Cobras have created a versatile and formidable wall of Spector sound (is that timpani you're hearing here and there? Yer goddamn right it is). Be it eerie or orchestral, or pure rock and roll rough up, Tied and True puts the Cobras on a whole new level-of many sources but a genus all its own.

Amazon.com

Combining girl-group hooks and harmonies with high-octane, Motor City garage rock, the Detroit Cobras conjure the 1960s era of Top 40 AM radio and vinyl 45s. Though the results are considerably poppier than the band's name and the light bondage of the album title and cover might suggest, singer Rachel Nagy has attitude to burn and the mixed-gender band plays with plenty of rough-hewn energy. Material (none of it written by the band) includes minor '60s hits such as "Nothing But a Heartache" and "Leave My Kitten Alone," obscurities from classic songwriters such as Gerry Goffin and Jerry Ragavoy (as well as James Brown and Dr. John) and a hopped-up rendition of the Depression-era folk standard "On a Monday." --Don McLeese

Tied & True is a step up for one of the most fun Garage acts out there. The Detroit Cobras have been touring an d playing for a couple of years now. With each album they manage to uncover about a dozen rare R&B gems and turn those into their own. Their strength lies in the up tempo songs. The Cobras manage to hide their weaknesses best when they get to speed it up a notch. For tied and true that means that "As Long as I have You" (an original for Garnet Mims) or Little Willie John's "Leave My Kitten Alone" become stand out tracks. Yet Tied and True is also the first Cobras album where they manage to hold the ballads together at least. Dori Gayson's "Try Love" is one of those pleasant surprises on this new Cobras record. Rachel Nagy is as sloppy as it is passionate and affectionate. The love for R&B shines through making her limitations as a vocalist secondary. The Cobras seldom improve on the originals, but they display a deep understanding of R&B with every new record. They don't try to copy the artists but reinterpreted the songs in a way that feels comfortable to the band. With the help of Greg Cartwright from the Reigning Sound makes tied and true another fine effort from the Cobras and the first that sounds like some extra effort has gone into the production which helps the album tremendously. Some of the tracks sound layered, reminiscent of Phil Spector in way, without them loosing their raw and sparse edge. The Cobras is simply the best bar band or oldies act out there, every new album is a joy and you won't regret buying this one. Although I must ad that it almost seems a sin to buy it on cd and not wait on the vinyl release.

Bigger sound and fewer rough edges than what they've done in the past--why would that be a bad thing? It isn't. An outstanding album from an outstanding band. Like all DC albums, it never leaves my rotation for very long. Why no five stars, people?

Lacking the urgency of 'Baby' and 'Life, Love and Leaving' the Cobras are still the best at reconstructing forgotten R&B gems into fiery garage rockers.
