The members of this band have logged some serious time in some of the best garage rock bands of the last twenty years, including The New Bomb Turks, The Dirtbombs, Bantam Rooster, and endless others. Therefore, it came as no surprise that this sounds like a record straight out of the late ‘90s garage rock scene. Not knowing anything about the band beforehand, the real surprise with this release came when I realized this group of primarily Detroit based musicians are in a band called Seger Liberation Army together, named as such because they only play early era Bob Seger covers. This vinyl only release collects all of the tracks that were on their previously released CD and the tracks from their two 7” singles of a couple years ago, plus six recently recorded tunes. While I’m not super familiar with early Bob Seger apart from “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” and “0+2=?” (both of which are among the fourteen songs represented here), I was still able to dig this quite a bit.
