Gratiot Avenue



 Genre: Art Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

Gratiot Avenue is another of the grand streets in Detroit that has fallen from grace as the city deteriorates before our countries' eyes. Skunk1 grew up in Detroit, so it particularly difficult to see what municipal financial ruin has done to that once fine city. This song is a redux of our tune Cass Corridor for the Solo-Me-O Challenge with one major change. Skunk1 added a big-ass lead guitar and Skunk2 did some amazing machete chopping of it with incredible finesse and maniacal filtering. Hats off to him for his wizardry.

Gratiot Avenue
Very evocative of the waste and despair that must be prevalent in the city. Got a bit of Terry Kath "Freeform Guitar" vibe from this. Funnily enough I was talking to a guy from Detroit in Cairns, in far north Queensland (Australia), just the other day and this topic came up. A wild ride. Thanks, Peter.

Big ass guitar is right
this is an awesome track. The beat is tight and the bass rolls right over heavy and steady. Excellent!
