Oh great, another talented band from Detroit that I missed the first time around. This band/orchestra were originally named Mr. Unique & the Leisure Suits and were formed in 1977. And, as I mentioned, they came from the Motor City. Ah yes, the Motor City, that magical place that spat out the MC5, Stooges and Jack White. If Detroit had never existed there would be a huge gaping hole in my record collection. Parents Night at the Leper Colony is a 'best of' package of the bands work from 1979 to 1994. It's like Black Flag meets Joe's Garage. Thirty years later and these songs are still pushing the envelope. Trouser Press proclaimed their 1983 EP as having 'something to offend everyone'. That's probably still true but it's one of those albums that everyone should hear at least once. Just so you know that it exists. This is the album you can put on and enjoy with a few of your coolest friends or you can also use it to run off unwanted guests. That, in my humble opinion, is a true sign of genius.
