"Detroit Rock circa 1976 meant one thing and one thing only:  the ready-made light beer commercial sounds of Night Moves by Silver Bullet Bob Seger.  And if that one fact is not enough to convince you that the high time, high-tide of high-powered Motor City rock was definitively dead mid-Me-Decade then you can see also Glenn Frey.  However, there remained many ideological hold-outs; bright spots amongst the burned-out crags of Detroits blighted skyline:  Sonics Rendezvous, Death, The Dogs, Lightnin.   But the band that came the closest in true garage group style to recapturing the excitement and spirit of the Grande Ballroom with one fell double-sided swoop before hopping a bus-ride back to nowhere was Adrenalin.  Looking, from surviving video footage, like the featured entertainment at a Hamtramck Junior Prom, but sounding like a junior varsity MC5, the Guitar Army rampage on Rock N Roll Screamer reeks of amphetamines and A2 residue; the gymnastic histrionics of Sonic Smith most particularly.  The flip-sides no slouch either.  Easily in the same league as City Slang, Raw Power or Borderline, Rock N Roll Screamer, originally issued without a picture sleeve on the obscure local Fiddlers imprint, is the happiest of accidents as Adrenalins intentions were never proto-punk glory.  The best record I dont own and, in my mind, the best justification for the continued search for obscure and unknown records.  BUY IT NOW!" -Collin Makamson.
