A vast expanse of desolation, the flattened scrubble of the shattered city stretches to the horizon. Rising over the panorama of twisted steel and broken dreams stand the monolithic towers of glass, dominating the landscape as they do the lives of the people who scrabble for existance in this stricken world. The rich and the powerful live in their shiny fortresses surrounded by the violent ruins of the city below. Onto this volatile stage steps Rob Tyner and his band of warriors, standing in silhouette against the sky as they swear allegience to the liberation of people.

Rob Tyner (December 12, 1944 – September 17, 1991) was an American musician best known as lead singer for the proto-punk rock band MC5. Born Robert Derminer, his adopted surname was in tribute to the jazz pianist McCoy Tyner. It was Tyner who issued the infamous rallying cry of "kick out the jams, motherfuckers" at the MC5's live concerts. Tyner had originally auditioned as the bass player, but the band felt his talents would be best used as a lead vocalist.

In 1977, Tyner collaborated with Eddie & the Hot Rods for a 7-inch release coinciding with a promotional UK tour to promote MC5 vinyl reissues. Simultaneously back in the United States, Tyner had launched "the New MC5" which later operated as the Rob Tyner Band and laid the foundation for "Rob Tyner & the National Rock Group", a project which was prolific but issued no recordings. In 1985, Tyner donated his talents to a benefit LP for Vietnam Veterans. Tyner dipped into the song catalog of the National Rock Group for his Blood Brothers CD (1990) and plans were afoot to play more live shows, (including plans with Blackfoot drummer Jakson Spires) when he died in 1991.
On September 17, 1991, Tyner suffered a heart attack in his home town of Berkley, Michigan. He was taken to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, where he died, leaving his wife, Becky, and three children.
Thanks to Mr D.!

laurent a dit…

À tel point qu'il mériterait un remboursement via mandat-cash illico presto!
De mon côté, ayant eu la faiblesse d'apprécier cet opus gorgé de soul, je me permettrais de dire merci (mais timidement hein, tout en restant discret.)

I happened onto this by pure accident, but because I went to school with Pete and Joe, I'd really dig hearing it... Alas I cannot find the download link, has it expired?
