There are sooooooo many great rock bands from Detroit. Garage rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, proto-punk... you name it, Detroit's got it! Strange Sounds #3 takes a look at a slew of bands from Detroit, as well as a handful from neighboring cities like Ann Arbor and Flint. This mix is semi-chronological, making our way up from the late 60s (MC5, The Stooges) to present-day bands (Outrageous Cherry, The Raconteurs). Lotta great stuff in here. As usual, I try to balance the well-known with the obscure; so while I may hit you with a live version of Detroit-born Alice Cooper's infamous "No More Mr. Nice Guy", I'll follow it up with Frut of the Loom or Frijid Pink. Who? You better get familiar!
