4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Songs From The North East 5 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
Detroit Social Club don't come from Detroit. They don't come from
anywhere in America at all. Detroit Social Club hail from
Newcastle-Upon-Time and need not be ashamed of this geographical fact.
Newcastle can be proud of its redoubtable sons too.
Their album 'Existence' is a very strong first showing.

Singer/guitarist David Burn is largely responsible for
the the band's monumental sound. The ten tracks in the
collection show evidence of immersion-in and affection-for
art-rock of the late seventies and early eighties but their
influences do not dig down too far below the skin and preclude
a shrewd eye to the here and now.

The rest of this energetic ensemble comprise : David Welsh and
Johnny Bond/guitars; Dale Knight/keyboards; Chris McCourtie/bass
and David Green/drums.

Mr Burn knows his way around a good tune. The gutsy anthem 'Chemistry'
is a good case in point. It's got an uplifting singalong tune
(somewhat redolent of The Beatles classic 'A Day In The Life') which
would, given the chance, have hands and black and white scarves waving
in the air at St James' Park.
Single 'Sunshine People' does the business too. A bluesy four-square
rocker with some deliciously powerful anachronistic guitar playing
and thundering percussion.

The band shows its tender side on 'Universe', a spangly-jangly
confection with a somewhat mournful melody and summer-of-love-
connected-together-to-the-bigger-picture-by virtue-of-our-
common-humanity lyrics. Nicely naive!

'Northern Man' is one of the project's highlights; a string-synth-laden
epic with a memorably mournful chorus which bought the deadpan drollery
of The Verve to mind for a moment or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut album 17 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
The Detroit Social Club have produced a great debut album in my opinion. It sounds like these lads have are on their second or third release. In a way this is my only criticism, maybe the first album should be a little more raw.
Some of the songs are instant hits but most need a few listens before they come into their own. Its an album which just gets better and better with every listen.
There's great songs through the album. Kiss the Sun is a fantastic opening song, it gets you right into the mood of the album. My other favourite songs are Northern Man, Black and White, Sunshine People, Prophecy and Universe.
Well recommended but give it a chance, it may take a few listens before you appreciate the complexity of some of the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Sound Surround" 15 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had not heard any of their music before I got this album but now I'm really pleased I took the plunge. The first thing I noticed was that the music came at me from all directions, a truly expansive sound. The use of several instruments give this an orchestral feel. There seems to be a hint of 'Arcade Fire' and a smidgeon of 'Kasabian' allied with a barrel load of originality, this makes a potent mix! I recommend this to all those who wish to be wowed!
