Rock n’ roll has long ago stopped being thought of as the devil’s music. Yet, The Stone MG’s sound as if they’re ready to pick rock up from church, got it boozed up, and send it downtown for a fistfight.
“Detroit” swings left and right while swimming in layers upon layers of agony. Indeed, according to the songwriter, it’s a tune inspired by a painful divorce. The million dollar rhythm section plays off these sentiments brilliantly, while the rest of the band lay down something out of the “Waiting for the man” rule book.
This is a single with plenty of fight in it. If it’s any indicator, so are the The Stone MG’s.
