500 FT. OF PIPE - DOPE DEAL (2001)

Another relative obscurity, this time from the Motor City. 500 FT. OF PIPE is a very unique band, as they don't have a bass player. Don't let that scare you off, though. These guys rock. Hard. Frontman Ross Westerbur actually holds down the low end quite satisfactorily on a Minimoog. I can only compare 500FoP to what I imagine Detroit City's own MC5 might've sounded like had they arrived 30 years later by way of Palm Desert. There's really not a weak spot on the entire LP, though the highlight for me is the seven-minute warhorse "Wear It Out". Highly recommended to fans of GRAND MAGUS, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, and all that is both psychedelic and heavy.
