Listening to Electric Six – Fire

Electric Six - Fire

If you like your music with a dose of humor, Detroit’s Electric Six is for you. Part Bloodhound Gang, part Bee Gees, the band offers up hard rocking disco tinged music with patently absurd lyrics.

“Don’t you want ta’ know how the kid’s startin’ fires? It’s my desire! Danger! Danger! High voltage! Fire in the disco! Fire in the Taco Bell!” from the track Danger! High Voltage.

Other stand out tracks have titles like Dance Commander, Nuclear War (On the Dance Floor) and Getting Into the Jam. Fire is definitely their best album, but another disc Flashy has my all time favorite Electric Six track, Formula 409 – a bizarro riff on muscle cars and cleaning supplies.

“You can drive your car to pieces baby! You can clean your kitchen baby!”

Brilliant.
