An enjoyable debate is how best to categorise The Detroit Cobras.
A popular search engine describes them as garage rock.
There is a touch of rockabilly there with Rachel Nagy's voice not dissimilar to Imelda May's.
Throw in a touch of soul and/or indie for good measure and you could keep the debate going for a long time.
Alternatively why not just listen to the music.
Two tracks from their third album Baby on Rough Trade from 2004.There is also a Bloodshot version from 2005 which also includes their excellent EP Seven Easy Pieces
A particular favourite of our good friend Dirk I believe.
They come from Detroit.
