In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week, Ryan Spencer of Jamaican Queens gives the scoop on Detroit, Michigan. Jamaican Queens’ debut album, Wormfood, is out now.
EVERYONE IN DETROIT IS OBSESSED WITH GARAGE ROCK. Unfortunately. I think that shit’s sooo boring. A lot of the people I’m into in the city hate that stuff, too. All the weirdo bands kind of support each other, cuz there are so few people, no one would come to your show otherwise. And if no one comes to your show, how will you find anyone to sleep with?! The techno scene is really awesome, but everyone already knows about that.
