The best BBQ in the D is actually in Canada. But make no mistake: Detroit is to electronic music what Wittenberg is to the Reformation. I am still lacking the ability to rip LPs, so whatever Detroit stuff the Electrifying Mojo turned my cousin on to, and thus me, will have to wait. The Egyptian Lover will have to wait too. The Red Wings, however, have long flourished thanks to foreign players, and the D is a mecca of robots and outsourcing. Hockeytown heroes Meg and Jack White took a page from GM and Ford, and arranged for automaton maquiladores to cover their songs for a cover album called "Electrostripes: An Electro Tribute to the White Stripes." I know very little about any of these bands, though like many electro compilations, the acts seems to be slightly different iterations of a single producer. As a whole though, the concept works pretty well, and the record is probably worth owning for the dismay it will cause your sincere guitar friends.
Happy Birthday, OGIC!
