Cover band extraordinaire, the Detroit Cobras have built a solid reputation by uncovering long lost R&B classics and obscure rock & roll tunes and then infusing them with their own distinct Midwest rock vibe. Using this formula, they've produced musical gems such as their 1998 debut Mink Rat or Rabbit, 2001's Life, Love and Leaving and 2004's Baby. Since 1996, they've built a strong following at home (starting with the fans of Detroit's garage rock scene) as well as plenty of glowing press in the UK where they inked a deal with the legendary indie label Rough Trade. They've also appeared on the compilation Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit, produced by Jack White of the White Stripes.
