The American Ruse: MC5’s Shocking Three Albums Exhumed
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The 2014 Martin Popoff ebook about the making of MC5’s three albums, Kick Out The Jams, Back In The USA and High Time.
Detroit’s Motor City Five exploded like a Molotov onto the streets of Detroit with some of the greatest live shows ever executed plus three records to prove they were here: 1969’s Kick Out The Jams, 1970’s Back In The USA and 1971’s High Time. Purchase the tales of their making separately or gather ’em all at once right here, as Wayne Kramer, Dennis Thompson, band manager John Sinclair and since deceased bassist Michael Davis insightfully place us at the scene, divulging all things MC5 to be sure, but also painting a picture of the Detroit of the day. Other creative types who were there at that explosive time further fill out the story. Emerging out the other end is an understanding of what MC5 accomplished so many years ago and why they could not live beyond their brief and scarring tenure.
