365 Days of Album Recommendations – Oct 14

MC5 – The Anthology: 1965-1971


Partly recommending the anthology to ensure you get the uncensored version of “Kick out the Jams,” but also because there are a lot of other really excellent—and weird—tracks on here. I say weird because in a weird way, the underground importance of “Kick out the Jams” has kind of served to obscure how bizarre this band could actually be.

“Shakin’ Street,” “Tonight,” “American Ruse”—these are songs that could only have come from a few select brains …

Mainly tho, the anthology just hits on LOTS of what we expect from the MC5; jams. Loud, insane, oddly funky, and furiously revolutionary jams.

Kick ’em out.
