NOT JELLY

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 1998 at 12:00 AM

A tradition of sorts has been continued here, call it an aural yearbook. United We Jam III is a document of bands associated with the Detroit Musicians Alliance, an organization that has dedicated itself to doing the yeoman labor of fostering bands and creating a fraternity of artists within a bar scene that can sometimes be, well, not so fraternal. The beauty of this comp is that it never sits still -- from the opening sample-driven, industrio-groove of Skinhorse's "Detroit," to the lovely and meditative "Gayathri" by Motion Control, to Ernie "The Acoustic Terminator" Douglas' "Pulse" -- the variety never lags, and hidden amongst the tracks is a gem or two for genre-ignorers and local music enthusiasts of all stripes. For more info on United We Jam or the DMA, call 313-730-SONG.
