It’s been about a decade since Detroit’s Electric Six became a cult sensation after the then-almost-famous Jack White was simply rumored to have sung backup on their single “Danger! High Voltage” (turns out he did). Had they called it quits after the as-noxious-as-it-ever-was novelty follow-up success “Gay Bar,” most of us might have never noticed. But they didn’t. Rather, they’ve managed to release a full-length almost every year since, proving they must have recruited some diehard fans along the way. In fact, to describe them as a quartet of irreverent hucksters, playing increasingly eclectic rock ’n’ roll brimming with pop culture jabs for a dwindling crowd of diehards across the country, subsisting primarily on a couple of nearly forgotten fluke hits, essentially makes them the Dead Milkmen of the 21st century. Only the Dead Milkmen are back together. So where does that leave us?
