Feb 25th 2005 my friend and I saw the remaining members of the MC5 + the Sun Ra Arkestra play together.  Recreating the sound, visuals + energy as if it were 1966.  The sheer power, energy + urgent excitement of the MC5 has always blown me away.  Mixing in the Space jazz of the Arkestra changed it from a full on rock 'n' roll assault to something else.  The 'something' they had been trying to create 40 years ago.  The power of 'Kick Out the Jams' + 'Over + Over' with the jazz cacophany apocalypse of 'Starship'.  Sitting amongst Bjork + Jason Spaceman (of Spiritualised) was a novelty.  But nothing topped meeting + chatting with Wayne Kramer of the MC5 + discussing the Phun City festival of 1970, near me + my friends home town of Worthing, Sussex.
