The History of MC 5 Part One

Written by www.punk77.co.uk

MC5  1.

Formed in 1964 by guitarists Kramer & Smith as the Bounty Hunters they recruit Rob Tyner on vocals (originally wanted to be their manager) who comes up with the name MC5 and recruit Michael Davis (bass) and Thompson (drums). The name MC5 is thought up by Tyner and chosen because it sounds like a car part and also stands for Motor City 5 which is apt because the band emanate from the tough city of Detroit a city famed for its car industry and simmering racial tensions in mid sixties America.
