Here's a short blurb about them as a whole:
Negative Approach is an AMERICAN HARDCORE PUNK band, formed in Detroit, MI in 1981. The band is considered among of the pioneers of hardcore punk, particularly in the Midwest region. Like most hardcore bands, Negative Approach was little known in its day outside of its hometown. It is now idolized in the DETROIT ROCK UNDERGROUND AND THE PUNK SUBCULTURE, considered to be one of the elite bands of the "old school" era, and continues to be influential. Negative Approach initially broke up in 1983 with singer John Brannon moving onto Laughing Hyenas, and later Easy Action, but the band has reformed as of 2006 and continues to tour sporadically.

What the Hell's the Land of NOD Experiment????
by Sara Aldridge
'Tis the season for summer festivals. From Movement and Coachella to Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, music lovers travel from coast to coast to watch a roster of artists from electronic and folk to rock and rap. This year, Metro Detroiters don't have to travel far to get a glimpse of some of the music world's most talented national and local acts. The Land of Nod Experiment will stake its claim in Jackson from July 23-25 and bring one of the most eclectic lineups in Michigan's summer festival history.
What started as an attraction within the VOODOO Music Experience in New Orleans from 2000-2008, Land of Nod has since broken away to expand as a solo event. "We decided to bring it to Jackson in 2007 and hosted successful preview events on the site in 2008 and 2009," says Dan Sheridan, one of the event coordinators. "This year will be the first full scale weekend camping event of our own."
Sheridan [above left] and Jason Reed [above right, with Andrea Bacon, a production coordinator] have been working around the clock for two years to bring this event to Michigan. With 32 years of combined experience in event production, Reed and Sheridan are gathering an assemblage of creative minds to exhibit an amazing display of art, music and creative expression. "Be prepared this year to have fun, shake your butt, gain new friends and experiences," says Sheridan.
Sheridan says that the mission of the grassroots music and arts festival is "to provide a platform for underground art to be exposed to people who might not otherwise experience it, and to showcase the pioneers [of] various musical genres." And with such a unique list of musical acts and displays of creativity, it seems hard for them not to succeed.
Admittedly, when you think of Jackson, the first thing that probably crosses your mind is not an all-inclusive art, music and camping festival. Racetracks, Republicans and jails would be more likely references. So why would such a unique event pick Jackson for a home? "After touring the site 12 years ago, it was decided that a festival-style gathering must take place there someday. Jackson is a very beautiful area and centrally located in the Midwest. The camping area where weekend festival-goers are encouraged to spend their time is shrouded in maple trees, giving the area a fairytale, dreamlike feel," says Sheridan. "Land of Nod is a magical place you go in your dreams where anything you imagine can and will come true."
So, why should you venture to Jackson? "Land of Nod is a smaller scale event, based around more of an intimate experience than most festivals. Most of the artists and bands involved will be onsite all weekend to hang with the people and take in the entire experience," says Reed. In addition, national acts like Tokyo Police Club, Eagles of Death Metal, Dr. Octagon and Of Montreal will be taking to the stage.
There will be a number of local musicians like Silverghost, Prussia and Audra Kubat also bringing their talent to Nod. Aside from the killer lineup of bands, the event boasts a lengthy list of creative happenings. "There will be theatrical performances, buskers, spoken word, aerialists, parades, live art creation and community involvement," says Reed. Creative art troupes from all around the map — including Detroit's Motor City Vaudeville Review, New Orleans' Tap Water Mind Control and Sacramento's fire troupe, Sirena Serpetina — will also grace the stages. So pack up the van, grab your pals and journey to the Land of Nod. | - Real Detroit Weekly

The new Vaselines album, Sex with an X, was recorded outside Manchester at the Analogue Catalogue studio in Mossley with Julie McLarnon engineering and produced by Jamie Watson (who also produced that first album Dum Dum). The Vaselines ca. 2010 is Eugene and Frances with guest musicians Stevie Jackson and Bob Kildea from Belle & Sebastian on guitar and bass, and Michael McGaughrin from the 1990s on drums. It may have taken The Vaselines 20 years to get round to making this baby, but it was worth the wait—bringing their solo careers to a climax. The irony has not been lost. Who says indie music can’t be fun? No hand-wringing on these tracks—just good clean smut with a twist of bitter. The Vaselines will tour the US in October, 2010.
Released: September 14, 2010

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion (since 2004 known simply as BLUES EXPLOSION) is an American punk blues band, which was formed in New York in 1990.
Lee Marvin Computer Arm will kick your ass in twelve different ways.
DUENDE! "No matter how you cut 'em, this slightly psychedelic, boot-stomp, hip-shake, Pabst slammer band bleeds Detroit. When I think of DUENDE!, I think of a Tarantino soundtrack for a film he hasn't yet made. Dark at times but with a groovy garage savvy." - REAL DETROIT WEEKLY 3/28-4/3/07

Detroit7 is a three-piece garage rock outfit formed in Tokyo, 2001. The band released their first indie EP in 2003, and consists today of vocalist/guitarist Nabana Tomomi, drummer Yamaguchi Miyoko, and Kotajima Nobuaki on bass. While signed to the Toshiba EMI label, they made themselves noticeable when they recorded the album “Great Romantic” in Memphis with John Hampton, who has worked with big-name artists such as The White Stripes and ZZ TOP.
After ending their relationship with Toshiba EMI and doing another indie release, detroit7 was signed onto Victor Entertainment, their first CD release on this label being the full-length album “Black & White”. Meanwhile in the United States, Domo Records’ Daruma Label released the “detroit7” compilation album to coincide with the Japan Nite 2009 tour, which the band participated in.
The band’s name, vocalist/guitarist Nabana Tomomi explains, is quite simply the result of the members’ desire to combine the name of a place with a number.
Nabana Tomomi (菜花知美) – Vocal, guitar
Yamaguchi Miyoko (山口美代子) – Drums
Kotajima Nobuaki ((古田島伸明) – Bass

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
JACK OBLIVIAN AND THE TENNESSEE TEARJERKERS
JOHN PAUL KEITH AND THE 145s
Mon. July 19th at 7PM
Crofoot and MOCAD present
Lightning Bolt with Wolf Eyes and Human Eye
Admission: $8 in advance all ages
While only one of these bands is rooted in Detroit, I thought this would be a good post. I enjoy all of these bands and the Sundresses happened to open for the Hentchmen awhile back. Their lyricism is something else.
Wolf Eyes noise sets are known to be pretty legendary. They recently played at the Ann Arbor Vitae with Druid Perfume and Bad Party. It's indescribable.
LA WEEKLY SAID THIS ABOUT LIGHTNING BOLT IN THE ARTICLE: BOYS FOR NOISE
"THERE IS HORRIBLE NOISE, AND THEN there is horrible noise you can legitimately say you enjoy. To understand the distinction, see Lightning Bolt play live."www.myspace.com/officialjackoblivian

I'd like to talk a bit about this band for a bit. Although, I cannot review this record because I have not heard it fully I'd like to let everyone know that there's only 75 copies left at Burger Records. Lets talk about the release for a minute, it was released originally on cassette and Bobby Harlow of the band, " THE GO " recorded it for them. The tape was released in 2009. Only 200 of the vinyl pressing were released. 250 Get out of my house tapes were produced.
here is a link to "Smashin' Transitors" a blog from Port Huron, MI. This blogger speaks about The Pizazz and mostly the tape release.
This blogger spoke more in depth about, the " Get out of my house" cassette. I really enjoy the melodies the Pizazz uses in their music. Everyone was waiting back then for Burger to release it on vinyl and here it is! The Band is very excited and I'm excited for them.
(Note: The photo above is the tape release. The LP art features the room photo for more into go to: http://burgerrecords.webs.com/ )
