The Dirtbombs: Party Store

THE DIRTBOMBS COVER CLASSIC DETROIT TECHNO TRACKS
ON NEW ALBUM, PARTY STORE, DUE FEB. 2011

Nearly ten years after their acclaimed Ultraglide in Black helped kick-start a renewed interest in all things Detroit and rock-and-roll, The Dirtbombs are releasing the de facto companion piece, Party Store.

Party Store is an assortment of live band interpretations of classic Detroit techno music of the 80's and early 90's. These are songs Collins digested when they were originally released - at a time where he was already making waves with garage-punk legends The Gories.

The songs run the gamut of subject matter from materialistic future- disco braggadocio "Sharevari" (originally by A Number of Names) to cold, post-industrial isolation of "Alleys of Your Mind" originally by Cybotron) through the instrumental optimism of a worldwide house classic, "Strings of Life" (originally by Derrick May). All of these themes encapsulate the climate of Detroit both now and at the time of their initial release.

Other songs include "Good Life," originally by Kevin Saunderson via his Inner City outfit and "Bugs in the Bass Bin" from Carl Craig as Innerzone Orchestra.
