Kick Out The Jams still sounds astonishingly powerful after almost 30 years. Recorded live at Detroit's Grande Ballroom in 1968, this relentless, aggressive set offers the frenzy of politicised garage punks blasting through giant stacks: a blitzkrieg of hard rock ignited from the duelling guitars of Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith and of the throttled vocals of Rob Tyner.

The five turned the Motor City into a mecca of sonic excess and shattered the dazed dreams of hippie America. From the pounding of the title track to the eight-and-a half-minute weird-out of Sun Ra's "Starship", Kick Out The Jams will rip your head to shreds.
