ELECTRIC 6: Señor Smoke: CD

Jun 19, 2007

Big, beefy, and highly synthesized, this Detroit sextet is reminiscent of Rocket From The Crypt in some strange universal twist. A hit in the U.K., where this album was first released, the self-dubbed disco-punk description is somewhat telling—nonsensical lyrics, a spinal column of power keyboards (Tait Nucleus), porno bass (John R. Dequindre, Frank Lloyd Bonaventure), cock rock guitars (The Colonel, Johnny Nashinal), and silver-tongued, masculine vocals (Dick Valentine). This oddly balanced mix of dance, garage, and what-have-you is simultaneously repulsive and magnetic.
