Five decades ago, the MC5 recorded its live debut, Kick Out the Jams, over two nights in the proto-punk band’s home town of Detroit, and it captured the band’s insanely muscular live experience. Guitarist Wayne Kramer wrote in his autobiography, The Hard Stuff, which came out in August, that during the recording, his low E string slipped badly out of tune and completely threw him out of his groove. But Kick Out the Jams, with its revolutionary undertones, has become one of rock’s most powerful albums. Kramer is heading up a tour to celebrate the record’s fiftieth anniversary by playing it in its entirety (along with cuts from Back in the USA and High Times) with Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, Faith No More bassist Billy Gould, Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and Zen Guerrilla singer Marcus Durant; that group is known MC50.
