Armed hippies play Motown

One of my favourite songs ever – Looking at You by the MC5. Great combo of revolutionary guitars and a happenin’ Detroit beat (Detroit as in the Supremes, not the White Stripes). I believe that is Fred “Sonic” Smith on the lead {Well, you’re wrong – see comments}. The MC5 fancied themselves as the white arm of the Black Panther Party. Not sure what the Panthers made of it. Love the bass player’s rubbery leg vibe.

    It’s Brother Wayne Kramer playing lead. Fred was the rhythm player.
