Album · 2011 · 9 Songs. That’s all well and good but Party Store really comes alive on Bug In the Bass Bin. A literal duet between yesterday and today, it marches off into the sunset alongside the synth washes of Carl Craig (he originally released the song under his Innerzone Orchestra alias), Collins’ violent guitar spasms, and a rhythm section that sounds like it’s scoring a battle scene. And like the best techno tracks, it doesn't loosen its grip for at least 20 minutes. Party Store The Dirtbombs.

Mick Collins' love of Detroit techno may come as a surprise to those who know him only as the guitar-strangling frontman of the Dirtbombs, but coming of age as he did in Detroit, it was hard not to be swept up in the sounds coming out of the clubs and filling the bins in local record stores. Men like Derrick May, Juan Atkins, and Kevin Saunderson were heroes to a generation of Detroit music fans, and Collins was no exception.

But when a longstanding garage-rock band with a black frontman loads its album with covers of Euro-inspired Motor City techno classics, galaxies implode. Eventually they stretch Carl Craig's 1992 "Bug In the Bass Bin" into a 21-minute space-jazz endurance test.

But there's still something jarring in hearing a band known for sweaty, loose workouts take on a genre of music where precision and repetition and icy control are paramount. Craig himself shows up on the Dirtbombs' version, playing some awesomely trashy keyboards, but the song is still an endless marathon of splintered, discordant guitars that takes up more than a third of an album that's a party otherwise. You can hear Collins straining for "Maggot Brain" expressionism, but you need a genius guitarist like Funkadelic's Eddie Hazel to pull off "Maggot Brain", and Collins isn't it.

Exclusive Prime pricing. When I actually got it initially I was put off. It's really different than their other albums.

The Dirtbombs, meanwhile, are tearing theirs down. This is the rare band that instantly snagged the ears on first listen, but the honeymoon period was about one LP side long, and then it started to sound like they worshipped tested rock 'n' roll patterns with a little too much bowed-head devotion. Naked drum beat aside, suspense was already part of the game plan on Party Store, as it's been a while since we last heard the Dirtbombs. The party this unsung Detroit band have in store is a strange one, to be clear, but how they work around convention to make it strange is the album's true delight. The boney garage-funk of "Sharivari" sounds like a noirish Beat Happening, just worried enough about repeating themselves that they've tightened the screws, locked the doors and painted the walls black for motivation.

Pretty good idea for an album - covering old techno records in a rockin' style. Doesn't really work but you can't knock 'em for having a go. Actually - their Sharevari isn't bad - probably the best thing here. Can't get excited about the rest.
