Let Me Take You To A Place I Know You Want To Go

Detroit garage rock band The Dirtbombs have done an album of covers of Detroit techno. It's much better than it could have been, although their version of Bug In The Bassbin goes on for about seventeen minutes too long and Strings Of Life doesn't entirely work to these ears. Techno legend Carl Craig was so intrigued he got involved in it, not quite able to believe a guitar, bass and drums band would have a go at this, never mind do it well. This track is ace- a garage rock cover of Inner City's Good Life. The sun's out here and it almost feels like the end of winter so 'Let me take you to a place I know you want to go...'
