    MC5 Biography

    Rob Tyner (v), Wayne Kramer (g), Fred "Sonic" Smith (g), Michael Davis (b), Dennis Thompson (d)

    The Motor City Five started in Detroit in 1966 and were responsible for some of the loudest, most energetic rock music to be created in the late sixties and early seventies. They were a huge influence on punk not only by their sound, but by their sheer attitude: they ran a newspaper advertisement saying "Fuck Hudson's" after Hudson's (a department store) refused to carry their record (Kick Out the Jams (1969)) due to the explicit lyrics. This eventually had them fired from their label, Elektra. They created two more studio albums before disbanding in 1972.

    The MC5 was an American rock band from Lincoln Park, Michigan, formed in 1964. The original band line-up consisted of vocalist Rob Tyner, guitarists Wayne Kramer and Fred "Sonic" Smith, bassist Michael Davis, and drummer Dennis Thompson. "Crystallizing the counterculture movement at its most volatile and threatening", according to AllMusic, the MC5's radical left-wing political ties and anti-establishment lyrics and music positioned them as emerging innovators of the punk rock movement in the United States.

    The MC5 had a promising beginning that earned them a January 1969 cover appearance in Rolling Stone and a story written by Eric Ehrmann before their debut album was released. They developed a reputation for energetic and polemical live performances, one of which was recorded as their 1969 debut album Kick Out the Jams. Their initial run was short-lived, though. In 1972, just three years after their debut record, the band came to an end. MC5 was often cited as one of the most important American hard rock groups of their era. Their three albums are regarded by many as classics, and their song "Kick Out the Jams" is widely covered.

    Tyner died of a heart attack in late 1991 at the age of 46. Smith also died of a heart attack, in 1994 at the age of 45. The remaining three members of the band reformed in 2003 with The Dictators' singer Handsome Dick Manitoba as its new vocalist, and this reformed line-up occasionally performed live over the next nine years until Davis died of liver failure in February 2012 at the age of 68. The MC5 were nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 2002, 2016 and 2018.

    Label - Atlantic

    US label.
    Label Code: LC 0121 / LC 00121.
    In 1947, Ahmet Ertegun, Herb Abramson and his wife Miriam Abramson (maiden name Miram Kahan) started an independent record label in New York City, which they named a1269720. They were later joined by Ahmet's brother Nesuhi Ertegun and Jerry Wexler. Growing from literally a one-room operation into one of the preeminent companies in the rapidly evolving music industry, the Atlantic label soon became recognized and revered around the world—a name synonymous with artistry and quality.

    Atlantic was purchased in 1967 by the l1076657 film studio. Atlantic/ATCO Records, along with Warner Bros. Records/Reprise Records, were to be operated as separate record companies under this ownership umbrella. This continued until 1969, when l1076657 was purchased by Kinney National Company. Warner Bros. and Atlantic were brought together, Ahmet Ertegün was given considerable power in the new operation and he, along with both the President and Chairman of Warner Bros. Records Mo Austin, served on a committee to oversee the record business. They oversaw the purchase of Elektra from its founder Jac Holzman in 1970, leading to the creation of the Warner-Elektra-Atlantic (WEA) alliance and distribution network.

    Today, Atlantic remains a part of the Warner Music Group, and forms the Atlantic Music Group along with Elektra, Rhino Records (2) (which Atlantic bought out in 1992) and Lava; EastWest Records America was switched to Elektra when Sylvia Rhone became president of that label in 1995.

    For counterfeit editions and other unofficial versions of its releases, please see Atlantic (2).

    Please note that some US cassettes and 8-tracks have an ATL code on the spine or elsewhere near or above the catalogue number. This is not part of the catalogue number and should not be entered as such. Instead, it's a label identification code and may be entered in the Barcode and Other Identifiers fields in Other.

    Early 45s were released on yellow labels until Jan. 1956, and on red labels after that date.
    In March, 1962, a small swirl logo was added underneath the “A” of “Atlantic.

    Please note disco 12" singles which show DSKO in the release # are promos.

    Please note that when it comes to promo releases released on Atlantic Records and many of its subsidiaries, such as Big Beat and East West Records America, the outside jacket sticker will contain the commercial catalog number and the inner label will contain the promo catalog number or sometimes both.
