The MC5 remain one of the most explosive and legendary rock bands of the '60s. Formed in Detroit and managed by John Sinclair, leader of the revolutionary White Panther Party, the MC5 soon became a potent musical and political force in their own right, and they pioneered a devastating fusion of freeform rock and incendiary protest. Storming live performances - often supported by fellow Detroit rock legends Iggy And The Stooges - cemented the band's iconic status.
The Future is Now! is an illustrated account of the origins of the MC5, their relationship with Sinclair and the White Panthers, the creation of their seminal LP Kick Out the Jams, and the political mayhem of 1969 which led to the group being dropped by their record label Elektra and the Panthers being indicted and broken by the US government.
