We will be happy to hear from you should you have comments, criticism or suggested additions to the site. Otherwise please take a look and welcome - with us - from Detroit, Rock City the mighty mighty MC5! Enjoy - Brother Anders Roder. Greetings From Mauro Bozzi and Francois Hostal

It's been over 3 decades. We now have instant communication via the internet, satellite television, radio. And it still takes 5 seconds of decision to realise your purpose here on the planet. Over 3 decades ago, I chose to be part of the solution. Peace, my brothers and sisters. Stay alive with the MC5!

Hi The DVD is actually 4.5hours long. The guy from Future/Now was interviewed recently for Carbon 14. It's in issue 23 and can be obtained on the net. He mentioned about sealing a distribution deal and putting the film out on more film festivles. It looks very realistic that the film will be released in Spring 2004. I hope it's out by March but it looks set to be either March or April. I think they used some of the footage from the DVD stuff on the Sonic Revolution programme on channel four. Anyone know what's happening with the Dodge Main live album? It's taking ages to be released. Wayne said he's got the stuff for it and I think he's going to release it on Muscle Tone but it's taking far too long. Cheers Tom

Just wanted to say as a fan of John Lennon I discovered the MC5 due to the concert Lennon put on in 1971 in Ann Arbor to legalize marijuana and to free John Sinclair, the MC5's manager, from jail. Not because I was there, I was born much later. But as I grow older I understand better the time period I just missed and how everything fits in to the big picture. Being from Chicago puts a local spin on everything. Thanks to brother Wayne Kramer for his excellent choice on the Songs From The Material World CD from 2002...!!!

Does any body out there have a copy of the Fifth Estate that had the cover feature on the MC5 Tartar field show? I was on the cover of that issue wearing a black kimono with a dragon on it doing my best Wayne Kramer air guitar pose. Sure would like a copy of that cover and the accomanying article.Also, saw Wayne last week open for Cheap Trick. Wayne and I talked after his set and we both agreed that Cheap Trick deserves a new level of respect for putting Wayne up on stage to address their fans. Many were dumfounded but many were impressed by the motor city boy.It's never to late for the masses to learn! Kick em out. Brother Rick From Sonic

I saw the MC 5 play in Festus, Mo. in the early 70's in a roller skating rink called "Caveland". It was a huge cave in the side of a mountain. Does anyone know the exact date of that show ? I also saw Nugent and Seger there a few years later...Any dates on that show ? Thanks !

From the Wayne kramer messageboard: "SONIC REVOLUTION: A CELEBRATION OF THE MC5" This week's NME called it "A rockumentary to crown all other rockumentaries." In March of this year, the three surviving members of one of the most influential rock bands of all time reconvened for a unique, one-off show. The result is the 30-minute program SONIC REVOLUTION: A CELEBRATION OF THE MC5, which mixes film of this explosive performance with atmospheric archival footage and brand new interviews telling the story of one of rock and roll's most incendiary groups. Featuring Wayne Kramer, Michael Davis and Dennis "Machine Gun" Thompson--and joined by guest stars Lemmy (Motorhead), Dave Vanian (Damned), Ian Astbury (The Cult) and Nicke Royale from Sweden's Grammy winning Hellacopters--devotees, fans and friends traveled from all over the world to hear the music of this blue-collar Detroit rock group long hailed as inspirational. Modern musicians as diverse as Jack White from the White Stripes, Mani from Primal Scream, Richard Fearless from Death In Vegas and Detroit's The Go discuss the musical influence of the MC5 as well as the creative impact of both members now passed on, Rob Tyner and Fred "Sonic" Smith. BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe and Mojo Magazine's Andrew Male narrate the band's story. When: Wednesday, November 26th Where: Channel 4 Music (UK) Time: 1:00am broadcast Length: 30 minutes

Hello from Michigan and we are still elated having just seen The MC5 film a few weeks ago. My photos from The Palladium in Jan.'69 were used in the film and David and Laurel and Dennis Thompson held a question/answer session afterward that was great. Laurel mentioned that they were close to cutting a deal for distribution and that the DVD would be 4 hours in length! Keep kickin' 'em out!!! Michael

Yo, Francois, Wassup with the "God is black and she is beautiful" crap? I do not read french. This is really offensive to those who know Jesus as Lord. If you are trying to make a point, I'd suggest you do it anyother way. Amen? Luv ya enough to tell ya'.

What a great site! Lots of good memories here. Living in the Seattle area now, but while growing up in Royal Oak, I saw the MC5, SRC, Frost, Rationals, etc. on many occasions in the late 60s. Still get the vinyl out once in a while or borrow "Kick Out The Jams" from the local library. Geez I miss those days ...

Hey kids! Are you ready for some of that motherfuckin' rock n' roll motor city style? It is time to testify in Detroit, on October 30, 2003 (the 35th anniversary of the recording of "Kick Out The Jams") the Detroit debut of "THE MC5; A TRUE TESTIMONIAL will hit the screen at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Brother Francois, we need your help. Marshall your troops to pony up an offering to help us fly Wayne Kramer and Mike Davis into town for this historical night. Anything our fellow European bro-dogs can do is appreciated. this is a legit request. Francois, you know how to contact me.

While looking for old Grande Ballroom posters, I stumbled onto this site. Far Out! Our band "The Train" played on the bill with the MC-5 on Jan 24, 1969 at the Grande Ballroom, and on April 7, 1969 at Olympia Stadium, and on May 30-31, 1969 at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. We always liked MC-5, and when the CD came out I was surprised to see our Grande Poster in the inside sleeve of Kick Out The Jams from Jan 24, 1969. Great memories of a great band!! Thanks Craig Hughes, flute player, The Train

On Thursday 18th of September 1991 I was in Royal Oak, MI at Washington and 4th St and was waiting to cross the street and looked at a car sitting there and it was Rob Tyner awaiting a light change. I thought nothing of it with the exception that he looked about the same as when I first saw him at The Grande in '67. Later that evening he was returning from a store run and was pulling in his driveway and smashed into his garage having succumbed to cardiac arrest. Difficult to comprehend that Detroit lost The MC5's singer. I'll say a prayer for you and your family Becky.

I can remember when the "Kick Out the Jams" album 1st came out it was banned from record stores in Detroit.We had to go to one store that was not afraid to sell it, Radio Shack. Still laughing my ass off about that.By the time we wore our copies of the second album out, it was available only as an import from England.A local band....on import from Europe,too funny.Saw them plenty of times Outdoors and Inside and it was always the wildest of all times. Nothing ever compared.Stay Alive With The MC5!

Just one more thing.. Here's an amusing little story I thought I'd pass along-My band was one of a few opening up for Gangwar at Merlin's in Madison Wis.I was dazzled,At last I was gonna meet two of my all-time guitar heros(don't think I wasn't sweatin' that when I played).We were between sets and Wayne Kramer shows up while Johhny Thunders slips away and he was lookin'pretty trashed.I started talking to Wayne and being pretty fucked up myself said"So what's up dude,I thought I heard something somewhere that you were all cleaned up?" He said"I was,'Til I ran into this guy"(pointing at Thunders).Funny stuff!

Hey Motherfuckers, I'm another survivor and it's fuckin' great to read all this and know I'm not alone.I saw the 5 many times during my misspent youth.A few times in Madison,Wisc.,only once in Detroit and more than a few times in Rockford and Chicago Illinois.Being a hardhead from the Rustbelt..anytime I heard they were playing,I was there!I love how all of the college radio musicologists out there are always using them as a reference point w/out benefit of having ever seen them or having even a nodding(no pun intended)aquaintance w/the shit the 5 had to deal with just to play a show.The Hippies fuckin' HATED 'EM.I remember recieving many a PC lecture from friends older bros.regarding the MC5's politics,attitude,flash and panache while they listened to their groovy Savoy Brown or Moodie Blues LP's.What these clowns were missing was that the 5 were about what alot of great R&B and Rock performers had been about....giving the people a great SHOW for their hard-earned $! It's funny,I've lived all over the US since those times and I usually bumped into one or two who had seen them in their Heyday and were into the whole deal.9 times outta 10 these folks end up being good friends of mine who'll jabbber w/me endlessly about music(or ended up playing with me in one fucked up band or another).It's a good thing.......Yours,Kev P.S. A time when people actually thought for themselves..imagine that!

Living in Metro Detroit would seem very chic to you MC5 fans out there. Unfortunately the film has not shown here yet and my memories from '67-'71 are the closest that I can get to sharing that experience. Does David or Laurel from Future/Now Films have a buyer for the film? If I could, I'd go to Sweden to see it but we Social Workers cannot afford the plane trip. Keep up the great work at Make My Day and all you fans keep on kickin' em out!

Im 50 years now, been playing since i was 12. I think Ive seen it all, and to me, the real rock begins with the MC 5. Shure it was a shock for all of us, because they were revolutionial ( I still am), but just to hear : I give You for testimonial, the MC 5 , stil makes the hair of my neck stand up LOL. To be honest, the MC 5 was a musical revolution, I listen to all kinds of new rock, but still, theres noone like you, MC 5. Topper from Denmark P.S. still got the original kick out the jams LP, and its as good as new

So great to see a website that's full of so many wonder people in a good vibe you know....can't wait till this movie cracks the fucking BOX OFFICE....there are so many people walking around clueless right now with all of this popular dreadful "NOW" music (rock, rap & soul music)....Yep, selling themselves to the highest bitter....but I guess you can't blame them, when your at least 14 or 18 yrs. of age fresh out of STAR SEARCH getting handed $50,000,000, a $80,000 Benz, a $10,000,000 home with a make-shift bar, some prostetic girls and multi-color "flavored" condoms I guess your mouth starts to water too.....I don't know, I'm in a band myself and I manage to hold down a gravy job, I don't know how I can do it sometimes without going crazy but I do it....my point being...stay true to yourself because, and I hope that some here knows what I am talkin' about, that when FATE finnaly realises your dreams and success, take a page out of the MC5 handbook: "ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE PROBLEM, OR ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE SOLUTION"....stay true to yourself & remember where you came from, no matter what anyone tries to tell you, because when it all comes down to it...at the end of the day...when the upward becomes tilt the whirl down and your lying in a pool of your own BILE that you created, the only person to blame is yourself....LONG LIVE THE MC5 & GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.....THANKS.....KOTJM!!!!!!

Can't forget their show at the Bataclan in Paris , Nov 29 1972 .It was organised by french Tv (!!!) for tv show "POP 2" and this music tv show was based on Live stuff only . So for 5 francs (!)I ve seen so many great artists and bands at that time .But the MC5 concert was one of the best in my life and I've seen hundreds of concerts . It began 4 hours late ( borders pbls ), the venue was invaded by bikers and outside, hundreds gathered trying to get in , the vibes were over heated , the band came on stage in a fury , mostly unbelievable wall of sounds and noise and then it was total anarchy and disorders in the Venue . Fights erupted between bikers and at some point their was some clash with the band too , the crowd ran outside the venue and the disorders continued outside as the French CRS ( heavy armed Police squads ) chase us too . For the first time in my life I had a policeman in full gear runing behind me with his baton and man I just never run so fast direct into the Metro entrance , really feeling his breath behind me . Yeah , heavy heavy experience . From this concert I really love and miss so much this band . I will be happy if you can recommend me their best live recording and maybe their best LIVE video .

Just have to say that MC5 really helps me get up in the morning... I tried with another band today when I had to get up from my bed, but it didn´t work at all... when I heard Ramalama blast it´s way through my speakers I went wild! I ran all the way down to the studio where we´re recording our new 7" (out late nov / early dec ´02)!! Ramalama fa fa fa!!!

Having attended the midnite screening of a True Testimonial at the Toronto International Film Festival I must testify: This is the first rock and roll movie that I felt was honest, candid, and intimate. The editing was absaloultly the best editing I have ever seen. I can only hope that the film gets a chance to be seen by all MC-5 fans,and hopefully, by the hungry masses of children raised in the corporate rock teet; to witness such fucking balls given the times, and to actually PLAY incredible rock and roll--oh my fuck were they good--before all the templates were distilled and the origins rock music forgotten...shit, just being in the room with Dennis Thompson and witnessing the depth of emotion that such a deep commitment to his art(devotion some call it)created in him. Some one has got toget Dennis out on the road again... I have been truly rivited by the heat these guys could generate...to end; the film don't lie brother--one of the best nights I've had in years and made me feel so connected again to a place that now seems halcyon yet resonates forbodingly with our current times...kudo's and my deepest respect and admiration to the remianing memebers of the MC-5, and vibes out to Rob and Fred...ciao fer now...

The music is so powerful but watching it visually led to a whole new experience. Cannot wait till it comes to Detroit it's gonna be killer, there will be riots in the streets. It has made a huge impact on us. Stay alive with the "5".

Hello Jon, Here are Wayne Kramer's own words as i once asked him the same question a few times ago - "...FOR REHEARSALS AND RECORDING SESSIONS WE USED FENDER GEAR. I USED A FENDER 60 WATT SUPER REVERB ON MOST OF BACK IN THE USA AND HIGH TIME." ... and as far as i am concerned i always (and still) revered Fender amps, especially the Twin Reverb Thanks for visiting this site!

First of all, the MC5 are one of the greatest, and most unrecognized, american bands of the late twentieth century. I do have a question if anybody will read this and respond. The MC5, motor city five, were the only band to play the '68 democratic convention. The seven people who organized the protest, and who were consequentely arrested were known as the Chicago seven, C7. Is this just a coincidence or were they named in the style of the greatest and only band with the balls to play such a revolutionary set? let me know if you have any insight. otherwise, kick out the jams muthafuckas!!!!

At 16, I bought "Kick Out the Jams" at the Woolworth's in Crystal Lake, Illinois. (1970) I went on to do a stint with a San Francisco punk band in '79 and became a rock critc for a few years after. Maybe it's time I plugged in the old Gibson and kick out a few jams of my own, eh? Damn those in our government trying to undermine the U.S. Constitution. Be a part of the solution! Let FREEDOM RING.

I just wanted to say that it is a tribute to the 5 and I really want to thank all of you for putting this website together. I have enjoyed renewing my former enthusiasm about this group. I live in Seattle and am from Birmingham, Mi. where I grew up with the 5, The dukes, Seger, SRC. and of course Iggy and Alice. What would it have been like in Michigan without the contributions of these fine artists. I will never be able to repeat the energy these bands created for all of us. The energy is still never been equaled and may never again be equaled. I attended the one and only concert in 1970 with the 5, Led Zeppelin, Grand Funk, and Lee Michaels. There never was a more killer show in my mind than this one. I went to many. When I look back it is hard to imagine as a youth that we had such a variety of culture and music to love and enjoy. I keep waiting for others to light my fire such as the 5 did for me. I loved the free concerts at Huron High. Free concerts now days are not heard of. It was something to be a part of the 5th estate era of reading. I still have some of my things from that era. Not much left. These were the best years of my life without question. I just wanted to pass this on as a reminder to those who went to the work of creating this website. I made thousands of friends during these days. Wish I could still make thousands of friends these days. Sometimes it is hard making 1. Especially when we were all brothers and sisters. As Rob would say, Let me hear a little noise out there. Are you going to be the problem or are you going to be the solution. You must choose brother you must choose. I give you a testimonial the MC5....... Peace and Love from a brother Keep me on your roster for further mailings. I did not get to hear John Sinclair last year in Seattle. I did a whole lot of thinking about it while he was here doing a book review.

John Sinclair and His Saugatuck Blues Scholars are ready to pitch a literary wang dang doodle all over West Michigan in June. The Scholars -- which feature all three members of post-punk pioneer power trio Squarefoot and Rick Slachta from The Blindsiders -- will back up ex-MC5 manager Sinclair for a pair of dates. Here's where you can catch them. -- Thursday, June 6 at the Intersection in Easttown Grand Rapids, wsg. Squarefoot & The Nastys. Doors open at 8 pm, show at 9:30 pm. 18+ welcome, 6 cover, +$2 for minors.
-- Saturday, June 8 at The Sand Bar Saloon, 141 Butler St., Saugatuck Mich.

Also, on Friday, June 7 Sinclair will sit in with Bill Kirchen and Too Much Fun at the Rosebud in Grand Haven. This date doesn't feature the Saugatuck Blues Scholars, but will provide a rare opportunity to see two Michigan legends together.
