GHETTO WAYS: Solid Brown: CD

Jun 22, 2007

Based solely upon the two albums I’ve heard from these guys, it appears that they are hell-bent on claiming the MC5’s throne, and they do make a good case. The music here is as raucous, soul-tinged, and catchy as one would expect from such a band, which is more than one could say about so many other would-be heirs to the throne. I’m unable to determine if they have the same radical political bent, but they do make some impressive noise nonetheless.
