The Dirtbombs

From SPIN:

Detroit garage-rock posse the Dirtbombs have been doing their thing since 1992 and, as the story goes, have been promising an album’s worth of bubblegum tunes for a decade. Of course, the thought of band mastermind Mick Collins — he of seminal blues-punks the Gories  — bending his gruffly soulful pipes to cooing out some ’60s pop nuggets always seemed like a long shot. Enter  Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey! , a 10-track set due out September 17 on In the Red Records.
While one might assume the Dirtbombs would choose a few classics to cover for their fifth album — previous sets have found them paying tribute to Motown hits and local techno greats — the new LP is 100 percent original.
