The Delta 72 - The Soul of a New Machine (1997)

front cover

The Delta 72 were an American alternative music band formed in Washington, DC in the summer of 1994, later relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After several line-up changes they've released the Triple Crown 7” and the album The R&B of Membership in 1996. Later releases include several singles and an EP and this full-length 'The Soul of a New Machine', followed by '000' in 2000. They disbanded in July 2001. Call them R&B's equivalent to the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion; the Delta 72 play revved-up indie rock with less influence from original R&B than the helter-skelter mayhem of '60s garage rock (complete with Farfisa organ break-downs) and blues-based punk (source emusic).
