The Detroit Cobras : Mink Rat Or Rabbit 1998

The Detroit Cobras signed with Sympathy for the Record Industry and released their first full-length album " Mink Rat or Rabbit " , in 1998 . After a three-year gap , they released a second album " Life, Love and Leaving " . Their RETRO - GARAGE formula proved popular in the UK and prompted the London-based Rough Trade Records to sign the band . They were one of the late , great John Peel's favourite live bands . They released an EP " Seven Easy Pieces " in 2003 and their third full-length album " Baby " in 2005 . " Baby " broke with the Cobras' tradition in that it included one original song , "Hot Dog (Watch Me Eat) " . " Baby " was picked up for release in the US by Bloodshot (who added the songs from the Seven Easy Pieces EP to the end of " Baby " . In April of 2007 , Bloodshot released the band's fourth full-length , " Tied & True " .

The band is known for multiple lineup changes , as noted in the side ba r . They generally have a touring lineup different from their recording lineup . Greg Cartwright of Reigning Sound (aka Greg Oblivian of The Oblivians) has been a constant creative force along with Nagy and Ramirez , who have been around since the group's genesis .
