DT’S, THE: Hard Fixed: CD

The DT’s play soulful, female-fronted punk rock in the vein of The Bellrays and the Detroit Cobras. Plus, Dave Crider from the Mono Men is on guitar, so the songs have that extra edge that I was hoping for. As an added touch, they skipped out on having a bassist and stuck in keyboards that owe a lot more to the Sonics than they do to any kind of New Wave. Put it all together and you got yourself a solid ten songs. Prior to this CD, the only thing the DT’s put out was a little five song, three-inch CD. Two of the songs from the little EP made it onto the album. The rest is new stuff. All of it’s worth repeated listens.
