Alice Cooper Goes Back To The Garage
With Alice Cooper back on the road, he tells Australia’s Beat magazine to expect a combination of the production from the ‘Eyes of Alice Cooper’ tour and that for his new album, the equally gritty ‘Dirty Diamonds’. “With the ‘Eyes of Alice Cooper’ in some ways it was sort of a dog chasing its own tail,” Cooper said. “When I listened to bands like Jet and The Strokes and The Vines what I noticed was that they were really good 1968 Detroit garage bands and probably listened to a lot of The Stooges, The MC5 and Alice Cooper. After listening to those albums, I thought, ‘hey, I would love to go back and sound like that again.’ The new one, ‘Dirty Diamonds’, is basically the same thing except for this time I allowed us to go back in and do some overdubbing. The funny thing was we did this album about a day faster than the other album because the songs were so right on.” Beat.com.au has since removed the article.
