"Detroit Rock circa 1976 meant one thing and one thing only: the ready-made light beer commercial sounds of 'Night Moves' by Silver Bullet Bob Seger. And if that one fact is not enough to convince you that the high time, high-tide of high-powered Motor City rock was definitively dead mid-me-decade then you can see also Glenn Frey. However, there remained many ideological hold-outs; bright spots amongst the burned-out crags of Detroit's blighted skyline: Sonic's Rendezvous, Death, The Dogs, Lightnin'. But the band that came the closest - in true garage group style - to recapturing the excitement and spirit of the Grande Ballroom with one fell double-sided swoop before hopping a bus-ride back to nowhere was Adrenalin. Looking, from surviving video footage, like the featured entertainment at a Hamtramck Junior Prom, but sounding like a junior varsity MC5, the guitar army rampage on 'Rock N Roll Screamer' reeks of amphetamines and A2 residue; the gymnastic histrionics of Sonic Smith most particularly. The flip-side's no slouch either. Easily in the same league as 'City Slang,' 'Raw Power,' or 'Borderline.' 'Rock N Roll Screamer,' originally issued without a picture sleeve on the obscure local Fiddlers imprint, is the happiest of accidents as Adrenalin's intentions were never proto-punk glory."
