Michigan Meltdown - Post-garage Pandemonium And Pre-punk Fuzz Freaks From The Mitten State's Milken Era

Coney Dog

Preview mode.

BACK IN STOCK!!!  As over-anthologized Detroit (and Michigan) are in terms of their florid musical history, Michigan Meltdown manages to collect twelve examples of post-garage paranoia and pre-punk fuzz spanning from the late '60s through the mid '70s—all previously uncompiled and unbelievable. While indebted to similar efforts of the past decades like Michigan-Brand Nuggets, Michigan Mayhem and Michigan Mixture, the significant accomplishment of Meltdown is that it manages to ably carve its own niche. Whereas these previous comps focused on tenderly naïve garage rock and blissfully optimistic psychedelia, the tone on Meltdown is decidedly darker. With multiple songs about Satan, intergalactic travel and drug abuse, the subject matter is a solid indicator of the actual desperation, escapism and despair that was de rigeur in the area during the era. Mastered directly from the original 45's (NOT mp3's) for that warm, full analog sound and paired with informative and hilarious liner notes. Limited to 500 copies. Recommended if you like: Do What Thou Wilt, the Great Lakes, coney dogs.

Copies have slight corner dings.
