Ye Olde Metal: MC5's Kick Out The Jams
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The 2014 Martin Popoff short ebook about the making of the MC5 album, Kick Out The Jams.
MC5’s incendiary debut album Kick Out The Jams was a flamethrower of a live conceit, and gathering it in as a metalhead moptop a few years after launch, sorta mid-’70s, was a scary affair, given its druggy call to revolution. But now here we are, able to come to terms with it in collusion, as I talk to Wayne Kramer, Dennis Thompson, band manager John Sinclair and since deceased bassist Michael Davis about one of a tight half dozen records arguable as the first heavy metal album of all time. Note: this is an expanded version of a chapter from Ye Olde Metal: 1968 To 1972, so if you have that book, you have a goodly portion of this rock document, even if in fact, the original has been vastly overhauled and expanded to create this one-buck nugget.
