This is a 13-song trip down Interstate 94 that ignores the pot holes. It's straight-up rock and roll with its roots in the '50s. Greg Upshur is a rock and roll singer in the truest sense of the term - vocally he's recalling Robert Gordon. Guitarists Rick Mills and Chris Flanagan favour clean tones without gloss or sheen. If the band wore collars they'd be blue - just as it tends to be with real rockers from the Motor City and environs. Those muscle car mentions in "Age Group Rocker" are entirely appropriate.

With a name like The Seatbelts you'd expect driving songs and "Joy Ride" isn't a letdown. It also offers what passes for an anthem in "American Bandstand", the sort of aspirational, longing-for-the-West Coast/stardom rocker that bands used to produce for something called The Hit Parade.

"Girl Off The Street" is another that proves these guys had/have the sort of pop smarts that turned The Romantics into stars (in Australia of all places) while maintaining their cred at home. She's long moved off the block and lives in Manhattan but I'd love to know what the subject of "I Want To Marry Patti Smith" thinks of the homage. It's an outright rocker that wastes no energy over its 1min20sec.

"Untrue" gets a little scuzzier while "Workin' The Line" ups the heaviness quotient with iron clad drumming and a hefty bass-line (props to Tony Bojanic and Skid Marx respectively.) "Baby, Baby, Baby" rocks as hard as anything here until the breakdown - and then cranks it back up again.

A thoroughly satisfying trip down Woodward and beyond, you can grab this sucker by contacting the band on Facebook or doing that Bandcamp download thing. It's also on iTunes.
