Album Review

More than a decade after the life of the Gories, the foxy garage explosion of Demolition Doll Rods prevailed. Danny Doll Rod (vocals/guitar), Margaret Doll Rod (guitar/vocals), and Thumpurr Doll Rod (drums), who are known for performing with next to nothing on, ignite a R&B, blues-tailored rock fire on their third album, On. Their first for Swami, it's a collection of tracks resulting from over two and half years of writing and recording and is their long-awaited follow-up to 1999's T.L.A.. Demolition Doll Rods have every intention of teaching the White Stripes and other Motor City copycats a thing or two, because On is balls-to-the-wall, in-your-face, red-toothed rock & roll. From the rockabilly hip-shakers "All the Stars" and "Take It Off" to the girlish ear candy of "Hot Pink," Demolition Doll Rods' strut never stops. The trio's white-hot musicianship can't cool down, and producer Dave Feeny keeps things slick so that the band's stiff upper lip is always up front. The twin-guitar work between Danny and Margaret oozes sex in a manner that is playful and completely for performance. Demolition Doll Rods are the ultimate raw performance, and that should be enough when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of rock & roll. Blues is stripped to its bare bones on the live version of "Don't Go No Further." Wild catcalls from Thumpurr and Margaret make you want it more, and honestly, Demolition Doll Rods want to give it. If that doesn't do it, the classic blues howling of "Cannonball" will. Need further explanation? Demolition Doll Rods are ready to grab you from behind to tell you what's what.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Demolition Doll Rods made a name for themselves playing stripped-down rock -- literally. The trashy trio, which plays unpretentious lo-fi garage rock, also likes to play wearing next to nothing. And find new ways to shock with lurid lyrics. The Detroit band formed in the early '90s and eventually signed to indie haven Matador Records; over the years, they opened for the likes of Iggy Pop, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and the Cramps. Legend has it that siblings Margaret Doll Rod (vocals, guitar) and...
