We can’t get enough of Carnaby Street, the rockin’ new album from the Michael Des Barres Band. The former lead singer for Power Station and Detective has assembled a veteran band for songs that hang around the intersection of Rod Stewart and the Rolling Stones.

Here’s “Little Latin Lover,” as performed live in L.A.’s Viper Room. The song has also recently been featured on Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show as a “Coolest Song In The World.”

Don’t ask me why, but we like Michael Des Barres. We met him a few years ago at SXSW in Austin and ran into him on the streets of SXSW in subsequent years. He played and sang with former Sex Pistol Steve Jones in 2009 and had some band gigs on his own in 2010 and (maybe) 2011. We forget.

Anyhow, the former Silverhead/Detective/Power Station singer has a new album, Carnaby Street, which comes out July 9. “You’re My Pain Killer” is the album’s first track.

Michael Des Barres is a British rocker and actor – he’s been in a number of bands but is perhaps most famous for replacing Robert Palmer in Power Station in 1985.  As an actor, he’s been in shows like “Miami Vice” and “MacGyver.”  Des Barres is making a new album in Austin, and it’s being produced by Texas boy Jesse Dayton.  No Past, No Future, No Problem is described as a “soul” album and nobody seems to know when it’s coming out, but here’s one of the songs from the album as performed by Des Barres sitting on an Austin porch.
