Dirty Americans
Strange Generation (Liquor and Poker)

By: Mike SOS

Bust out the bell-bottoms and prepare to rock out retro style, as the debut disc from Detroit's Dirty Americans bleeds gritty rawk from the speakers. This 13-track endeavor from the former members of the completely underrated The Workhorse Movement contains the rocking grooves that act as the missing link between Blue Oyster Cult and Grand Funk Railroad, as tracks like "Control" and "Burn It Down" are prime candidates for the '70s Preservation Society's latest soundtrack. But don't let these guys and their love for the good old daze fool you: these songs swing with sweeping imminence and rock hard, almost at times like the punkier little brother to Monster Magnet. Blessed with the ability to lay rock grooves like the Zeppelin-esque "Deep End" and the southern drawl of "Light-headed" down, Strange Generation is the best '70s release to come out in the 21st century.
