One of the earliest groups to emerge from the
Detroit garage rock scene, The Detroit Cobras
developed a reputation as the Midwest’s finest
(and most distinctive) cover band – while the band
members devoted themselves to performing other
people’s material rather than recycling established
hits, The Detroit Cobras dug deep into the well of
vintage R&B and primitive rock & roll sides,
building an individual identity out of lost classics
from the past which they modified to fit their
swaggering aural personality.
Originally released in April 2007, with ‘Tried & True’
The Detroit Cobras practically created a new genre
for themselves, delivering the sonic goods to back
up some seriously supernatural soulful vocal gifts.
Stretching out in the studio like never before and
including contributions from top line players like
Greg Cartwright, the Cobras created a versatile
and formidable wall of Spector sound.
