Alice Cooper celebrates Detroit garage rock on upcoming EP featuring Mark Farner, Wayne Kramer and others
July 22, 2019 8:00 AM
Alice Cooper is paying homage to some of the garage-rock heroes from his one-time hometown, Detroit, with a new record titled The Breadcrumbs EP.
The six-track EP includes guest appearances from ex-Grand Funk Railroad singer/guitarist Mark Farner, MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek, and Mick Collins, frontman of the garage-soul outfit The Dirtbombs.
Breadcrumbs includes covers of Bob Seger and the Last Heard's "East Side Story," The MC5's "Sister Anne," Suzi Quatro's "Your Mama Won't Like Me," and a track combining of the Ryder and the Detroit Wheels classic "Devil with a Blue Dress On" and "Chains of Love," a 1967 tune by local soul singer J.J. Barnes that was later recorded by The Dirtbombs.
Buy the vinyl version of the EP and you'll also receive a digital download of the record. You can pre-order the record now at ear-music.shop.
Following The Beadcrumbs EP, Cooper is planning to release a full-length studio album in 2020. He's currently on a U.S. summer tour with Halestorm that continues on Tuesday, June 23, in Cincinnati, and is mapped out through an August 16 show in Camden, New Jersey.
