Glide Review -The Dirtbombs- Party Store

Got a new review up on Glide.

Read it right C'here!!!

It is of Detroit's own Dirtbombs with their newest, Party Store.

This is the Motor City bands tribute to the mid 80's techno scene that was fairly popular in their town and when I first heard about it I knew I wanted to review it. 

This seemed such a strange combo that I thought some magic might happen. 

While their are highlights, overall it is a pretty loving tribute with not too much variation from the originals (guitars and feedback for keys and digital bleeps), but it is certainly worth hearing.  It is also a nice musical history lesson to go back and check out some of the original artists the band saw fit to cover. 

Here are a couple of the tunes with their original for comparison purposes...gvie a listen:

"Strings Of Life"
