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

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, because 4.9 won't do 12 Nov 2004
By Lozarithm TOP 500 REVIEWER TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The Detroit Cobras obviously love their record collection which must be very large and full of delightful obscurities from many decades. All their records are freshly recreated cover versions and here they tackle (in order) Melvin Smith (a local singer), the Olympics, Gloria Jones, the Kingston Trio, the 5 Royales, Dorothy Love Coates' version of Ninety-Nine And A Half Won't Do (not the Wilson Pickett song, as so many reviewers seemed to think) and Koko Taylor, all played with passion and verve. To make it harder to fathom their origins, they change or miss-spell some of the song titles or composer credits or omit them completely so some detective work went into finding the above list of names, but this is part of their charm. Great stuff

4.0 out of 5 stars It's TRUE, there is a good cover band 15 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
7 Easy Pieces, is a good little EP
The Detroit Cobras have taken seven songs from the 50/60's and covered them and spiced them up in a Detroit Rock style.
To great effect as well
If you like MC5, White stripes or the Von Bondies
then you should like this album

4.0 out of 5 stars soul tinged 60s garage rock 8 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
The detroit cobras return with a mini album of more covers with a 60s flavour. A garage band ( in the same vein as the Hives, White Stripes, Von Bondies) who cover obsure-ish 60s tracks fronted by Rachel Nagy are a fine edition to anyones record collection. Nagy's superb vocals are back by the bands tight performance. A perfect introduction to the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Mini-LP from garage rock Covers Band 24 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
Everyones favourite sex-charged garage rock R'N'B covers band from Detroit, a city fast becoming more famous for its conveyor belt production of bands than cars.
With 7 tracks in 19 minutes , this E.P./ Mini L.P.rockets by in the same vein as their 1st two L.P.'s- resurrecting obscure gems from the dusty corners of rock 'n'' soul history and cranking it up into classic detroit party music.
There is a slight whiff of pub-band about the 'cobra's, but the earnesty and faith in the songs oozes with every note.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only 7 songs, but they're gems 23 Nov 2003
By Stuart Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have their other cds and, like me, simply CANNOT get enough, well, then, YES, you DO need to get this CD. 4 terrific rockers, 1 slow soulful, 1 (maybe)gospel-rock, and 1 that defies description (Insane Asylum has a male vocal until Rachel chimes in as powerfully as usual)
I made a "Best of" cd for my car stereo and picked 5 of these 7; not a bad payoff for the purchase (and then stuck the other 2 songs on at the end, anyway!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's roll! 8 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Original? Maybe not very, but high-quality, rootsy rocky R&B doesn't need to be. It just has to be good and sincere. This is.
Only seven songs, but enough variation on the album. And all songs are more than 'okay'.
A short album, but fortunately there's a 'repeat-button'on my CD player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loud and Proud 16 May 2010
By Dean C. Eaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
How can you not love a band that specializes in loud, raucous covers of R&B B-sides, and has a all-out soul sister singing them?

Great fun garage rock, incredible rhythm section, and Rachel Nagy is my heroine. Best Summer Party records EVER!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, buy this now 25 Jun 2008
By G. Scott Maclean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You've never heard of the Detroit Cobras? What a shame. This group out of (you guessed it) Detroit is a traditional rock and roll group covering oldies you have never heard, in a way you have never heard. Fronted by a female lead singer with a gritty but perfect voice, this group ROCKS! But more than that, they're FUN - every song they do is just great fun - perfect party music.

I was turned onto this group by my wife, who has seen them play live (and met the singer in the bathroom afterward). After hearing how much she loved them, I bought all the CD's I could find of them, and we love them all. Highly recommended - you won't be disappointed!
