Lee Marvin Computer Arm - s/t
I'm not sure why I haven't yet shared this one with all of you over the last few years. I first saw these guys about 7 years ago at a Halloween show in Holly, Michigan. They had grown a pretty strong reputation in and around Detroit and have been the opening act for countless of solid touring bands. They've gone through a breakup or two over the last few years, but I believe they're back to making tunes and touring once again. The band has been making rowdy good ol' fashion sweaty rock and roll before it was the cool thing to do. Wailing vocals, blaring trumpet, and the ever-essential tambourine makes Lee Marvin Computer Arm one of the more energetic bands to come out of Detroit in recent years. I think this 5 track CD EP from 2004, a 7 inch from a few years ago on Cass Records, and another 7 inch from Italy Records pressed this year, which I have yet to hear, are the only actual releases they have. Hopefully a full-length someday?
