Synopsis

Album Description
The Detroit Cobras manage a pretty rare feat with their debut LP by transcending classic R&B material by sticking not to the original sound or slavishly recreating arrangements and stylistic trappings of the genre, but by finding the essence of the rough-and-tumble spirit of the original streetwise tunes the Cobras tackle on Mink Rat. Symphony For The Record Industry. 1998.

CD Reviews

REAL garage rock
Mary Heath | Boulder, co USA | 06/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"So many bands these days try to pass off as garage rock (the datsuns, the mooney suzuki) but this stuff is REAL. All of it is covers from the 50s just like the garage rockers of the 60s (the Sonics, The kingsman, The Troggs). The singer has a fantastic voice and the guitars go together wonderfully. great album pick it up."
A SUPER-STRONG DEBUT
Robert L. Hust | 12/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Cobras are amazing. They have taken old material and put a new sheen on it, adding an exciting edge and ultimately making it their own. I change my CDs constantly, but keep coming back to this one and the follow-up, "Life, Love, and Leaving." It's not a huge investment, so do yourself a favor and buy it. See them live too."
Pure Detroit
Robert L. Hust | Dublin, Ohio USA | 07/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This band is everything the Strokes and the White Stripes try to be. Those bands may come close, but this is the real thing. Barely known R&B classics done through a gritty garage filter. If you like the Dirtbombs you've got to hear this one."
