Product Description

Seattle's Thee Emergency bring whiskey-drenched rock and soul to their debut full-length release. Honing their craft with countless live shows, Can You Dig It? feels like an extension of those high energy sets. Starting off with the firey "Girl You Should've Known," singer Dita Vox sings about relationships lost with such bombast, you can actually feel her kicking you out the door. Peppered among the screamers ("Girl...", "Holdin' On", "Revolution #1") is the Jagger-channeling title track,"Can You Dig It?" as well as the deep gospel blues of "Cream" and "No Condemnation." Recorded in one short 2006 Detroit winter week with famed White Stripes producer Jim Diamond, Can You Dig It? has become one of Seattle's most anticipated releases of 2006.

Representing the best of both worlds, Seattle's Thee Emergency recorded their blistering debut in Detroit. The connection between the Northwest quartet and the Motor City is producer extraordinaire Jim Diamond (the Dirtbombs). If it sounds like Thee Emergency has as much to offer followers of the Seattle sound as the Detroit scene, that would be correct. Their garage is painted metallic blue, spiked with sharp pop hooks, and saturated with soul. Inside you'll find a bottle of gin, a pack of smokes, and dozens of well-worn copies of albums by the Animals, Blue Oyster Cult, and the Stooges. Just try "Get It Up" and "Sugar" on for size. They'll fit. Though full-throated frontwoman Zana Geddes took her nom de rock from Madonna nickname "Dita" and the "Vox" that U2's Bono abandoned somewhere along the way, she follows more closely in the fierce footsteps of Beth Ditto (the Gossip) and Rachel Nagy (the Detroit Cobras). Sonic Smith (guitar, just like his namesake in the MC5), Nick Detroit (bass), and Tom T. Drummer (uh, drums) make the band the powerhouse that it is, but Dita Vox is to Thee Emergency as Poly Styrene was to X-Ray Spex: the voice that grabs your attention and just won't let go. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
