The Dirty Dozen with Mick Collins: Part 0.

A few months ago, a surprising email dropped into my inbox from Mick Collins of the Dirtbombs. Days prior I had posted up a tune from "Ultraglide in Black", and I was kind of expecting him to ask me to remove it. Quite to the contrary, Mick claimed he was a fan of this blog, and I could leave the track up until "the sun burned out".

It also transpires that he's a bloody nice bloke too. For anyone that was a fan of the White Stripes in their earlier Detroit days, the Dirtbombs became essential listening, and I ended up preferring them to Jack and Meg.

In the run up to and over the holiday period, Mick has agreed to give me his top 12 Detroit tunes ever. With the motor city having such a rich musical history, I reckon we're all in for a bit of a treat. In the meantime to whet your appetite, here's something off the new Dirtbombs record due in the first half of 2008.
