MC5 DISCOGRAPHY LPs

 

Updated on September 14, 2015
KICK OUT THE JAMS

   
"Just looking at the cover, you can get some idea of the maniacal noize that you're about to come in contact with"
[Eddie Flowers]
"... if you liked the Five for what you knew them to be
you cherished the record as an artifact, tough not as a creative triumph;
if you were convinced in front that they were a bunch of Detroit punks,
the album bore you out."
[Creem]

                    

"One of the few people I ever heard say anything good about that album was a friend who stayed up all night and listened to it, full blast through his ear phones, and bombed on acid. He couldn't hear too well for a couple of days after that, but it made a new man out of him." [Chris Hodenfield - 1970]
See his inspired and great article on the MC5 : 'ROUGH TRADE FROM VENUS'
