The Dirtbombs to release album of Detroit techno coversBy Harry Painter on December 28th, 2010
see real article here: http://consequenceofsound.net
"Detroit garage rockers The Dirtbombs know how to pay a little homage. They did so with 2001′s Ultraglide in Black, covering soul numbers from the ’60s and ’70s. The band’s new album Party Store goes a different direction, but the concept sounds promising enough: live renditions of ’80s and ’90s Detroit techno.
The Dirtbombs will take on tracks by Cybotron, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson, among others. Detroit’s own Carl Craig chips in on the band’s cover of “Bug in the Bass Bin”, a Carl Craig original (as Innerzone Orchestra). Craig contributes some modular synthesizer programming to the 21-minute track.
So if you were listening to Guns N’ Roses in the ’80s and were too proud to give techno a chance, it’s never too late. The Dirtbombs are putting out Party Store [February 1st] on In the Red Records. Give their reinterpretation of “Sharevari” by A Number of Names below. The full tracklist is at the bottom. "
Original by A number of Names
1. Cosmic Cars
3. Good Life (Basement Roots Mix)
4. Strings of Life
5. Alleys of Your Mind
6. Bug in the Bass Bin
7. Jaguar 1.
8. Tear the Club Up
9. ?????-???(Detoroito Mix)

It was a simple Q+A with Mathew Smith. He is the Singer/songwriter/frontman of Outrageous Cherry. Personally, I'm a big fan of this band so I asked Questions other People wanted to know and I myself did not know. ENJOY.
How did Outrageous Cherry get it's name?
It was named after a hair coloring product...a friend of mine came up with the name because she wanted to sing Petula Clark songs with a Lou Reed edge, so I wrote some tunes, then she drifted out of the project and I ended up singing the songs myself.
Have OC had any lineup changes?
If so, who's new?
What of the band's achievements are you most proud of?
How did OC come up with the name for the latest album?
What can you tell me about Seemingly Solid Reality and how it was put together?
If the audience of listeners hearing "Seemingly Solid Reality" could understand one thing what would it be?
How did Outrageous Cherry meet each-other? There seems to be quite the age gap in the band
How is your distribution of records? I saw recently that your first release was re-released, this must be good to see happening.
What is OC's favorite Detroit Venue to play?
Zoot's was the best.
Where & when did Outrageous Cherry first practice?
Where was the first show? How did it go?
The Band has about 12 releases give or take, any of them you are particularly proud of?
What can you tell me about the future of Outrageous Cherry? New releases? Upcoming shows? Last minute news to share with fans

Kommie Kilpatrick is how punk should be done, songs about getting punched in the face, to needing dinner, these dudes have short hardcore punk nailed perfectly, blasting out good times with every one minute tune they offer. Deadbeat Beat is the remnants of garage pop masters The Decks, but rougher and a little more punk, everything you loved about The Decks and more! Keeping up old school hardcore aesthetic, Wiccans blast a more experimental sound, fast and loud, all the way from Texas!
At most this show will probably cost 5 dollars if it isn't already free..
