Artists and Bands

Are you ready to kick out the jams again?

I gotta admit that I’m not too sure about this one. The living members of the MC5 have announced that they will be touring this summer under the moniker DTK/MC5. Like The Stooges, the MC5 occupied a very specific time and place in rock and roll and despite the fact that I have always maintained that I have no problem with band reunions, the MC5 seem so much a part of a very specific moment in rock and roll history that it will be tough to shake this image in 2004. I hope that they prove me wrong ‘cause in their prime they were great.
