Don't know if you already knew this, but when I'm saying it on a conversation, everyone seems to mount his eyebrows... Alex Chilton was responsible for this band more or less... They seem to be blessed with coolness from the day one. They searched on trashcans and dusted off brilliant sides by artists like Irma Thomas, the 5 Royals, Gino Washington, Nathaniel Mayer, The Olympics, Shangri-Las, the Ronettes, Mickey Lee Lane or the Gardenias... And all this without looking like mods but like street punks. They have on their arsenal the BEST female vocalist came outta US the last 20 years at least. Rachel Nagy's the SEXIEST chick around. Something like a real cool Janis' daughter in a stripper's disguise! They were SO GOOD that legendary songwriters like Jackie DeShannon and Ellie Greenwich expressed their will to wrote new material especially for them! Nothing's just luck in this life, right? If you don't own their records just add it on this next week's schedule and start with it. A great live appearance that broadcasted by Detroit's WCSX radio station with the Cobras blasting out a 17 song set that smokes! That's as far as i know an only CD-R boot but if anyone from you guys and gals out there knows more, please comment.
