Detroit Perfect 2 Review
Title: Detroit Perfect 2
Rough, ready and stripped to the bone is the best way to describe the debut EP from these guys. There is literally no information on band make up or history available on them and the music here is about as simple and raw as you can get. It’s pure garage rock with punk attitude that sounds like it was done in one take using tin cans and a shoebox as recording technology.
That will be no serious impediment to your enjoyment of these tunes, but it sure requires an adjustment, especially if you’re used to modern ProTools production techniques. Expect NONE of that from Detroit Perfect! This really is 60’s style proto-punk with production to match.
They don’t try to cover it up, either. First cut is called “From The Basement” and right away you might be shocked by the muffled, buzzy production. The song is based on a simple power packed riff, much in the style of MC5, who you can easily tell are inspirations. It’s a peculiar mixture of super-fuzzy electric guitar sound with bare acoustic strumming on top, while basic vocals repeat basic lyrics. Nobody’s going to be reaching for a dictionary while listening to Detroit Perfect 2. I really wish the electric sound would have been thicker in the vein of Fu Manchu…then this would have REALLY kicked you through the wall. As it is, the song is a fun garage punker and that’s what this release is all about.
“Black Cloud” is the second cut and except for just a minor change, the riff sounds very similar to the previous track. More simple, thundering fuzz-punk in the vein of MC5, Stooges and early Ramones. With “No Love Songs”, things get a bit poppier, as the tune kicks off with a “na-na-na” vocal hook and the acoustic guitar is emphasized a bit more. Despite the increased accessibility, the profane lyrics ensure that this is no radio friendly pop song. The line about Sid and Nancy will bring a grin to your face.
“I Don’t Wanna Go Home” continues in the more pop-punk vein, but the super raw production keeps this from being the usual Blink 182 sugar kick. I could actually see a song like this getting airplay, back in the days when radio took chances and listeners were more open to songs that didn’t sound like they came out of a computer. The EP ends with an acoustic run through of the same song, which puts a different spin on it but kind of makes one wonder why they didn’t include another original.
Lovers of true gritty garage rock and punk will dig Detroit Perfect 2 but there is such a thing as having a production that is TOO garage for its own good. The guitars and drum sound could have used more thickness and oomph here and that’s what keeps this from getting higher marks.
