THE GORIES: I Know You Fine, But How You Doin' (vbr)

YEEEEEEAAAAAASSSS! This is the real Detroit sound baby! Forget all that stuff 'bout how the White Stripes and The Strokes are savin' rock'n'roll and creating a "new" scene! Those lame-o dweebs couldn't even dream of making and album this great. The Gories had a profound understanding of both blues and garage minimalism. Mick's soul roar combined with Dan's punk wail mixed with a healthy dose of Peg's heavy thud created a sound capable of melting any space-age metals! You WILL worship The Gories!
Totally minimalist real bluesy, garage rock. They epitomize the "garage" band. No bass, primitive drums, and two often poorly played electric guitars. Some songs I love and some songs I just plain don't like. But I don't think this band ever pretended to be anything it wasn't. And that says a lot to me. If you're into the White Stripes or bands like that check it out. Chances are you still may not like them. What you have to look at here is the sincerity and the spirit. Not the production or chops.
