Product Description:

Conceived in a riot-torn suburb of Detroit in the 1960s, The MC5's inimitable brand of incendiary rock has influenced several decades of musicians. The band mixed politically-charged lyrics with some incredible tunes, producing a potent brew that still resonates throughout the music world. This release offers a historic evening of entertainment from the band, as three of its original members regrouped for a show at London's 100 Club in 2003. A variety of special guests help out, with Lemmy, Ian Astbury, and former Damned singer Dave Vanian assuming vocal duties throughout the concert. Some fascinating documentary and archival footage is also included, making this an indispensable guide to the influential group.
