"Copycat Killers" (Scat Records)
The Plain Dealer

Veteran Cleveland band Cobra Verde - now a quintet thanks to the addition of guitarist Tim Parnin - is expert at crafting rock 'n' roll that oozes glam-punk danger and bluesy, lustful abandon. On its fourth studio album, the covers project "Copycat Killers," the band grafts this grit onto pop classics and cult faves. In fact, if the slinky lounge-act sleaze of Pink's "Get the Party Started" doesn't pack the dance floor at Saturday's CD release party, then a Chemical Brothers-goes-Krautrock rendition of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" or the herky-jerky minimalist version of New Order's "Temptation" certainly will. -
