The Dirtbombs – Ultraglide in Black

Ultraglide in Black

The DirtbombsUltraglide in Black In the Red ITR-079 (2001)

Pretty good album of garage-rock-oriented soul covers.  It makes for good party music.  Mick Collins has a good voice for this stuff, even he is a bit rough around the edges.  Highlights are “Your Love Belongs Under a Rock,” “Ode to a Black Man,” “Got to Give It Up,” and “Do You See My Love.”  It’s kind of funny that the song “Kung Fu” opens with a nod to Bauhaus‘ “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”.  These guys kick the crap out of some similar but lame bands like The Detroit Cobras.  Try this if you’re into garage rock from Oblivians, The Gories, Reigning Sound, etc.
