The Detroit Cobras are a garage-rock revival band formed in 1995 by guitarist Steve Shaw. Shaw recruited fellow Detroiters Maribel Restrepo on guitar, Jeff Meyer on bass and Damian Lang on drums to fill out the instrumental lineup, with ex-butcher and exotic dancer Rachel Nagy handling the vocals. Les Sans Culottes has a vintage sound -- rich, tube amped tones, silly-sounding organs that deserve to support an episode of The Monkees and vocal harmonies that might bring an ironic tear to the eye if in the proper setting. The way the songs tend to break into a barrage of snare hits and sassy organ solos is impressive.
