about

Flying Wedge was the brainchild of Greg Corbin, a bon vivant polymath and legend of the Detroit art world underground. With his brother Matt and a revolving cast of others—including Vic Hill who would later play in Black Merda and the Detroit Cobras—their sole record is the painfully rare self-released “Come to My Casbah” b/w “I Can’t Believe” 45. This riff-driven, no chorus, highly percussive single suggests a band that could hold its own with local rock brethren Death, Black Merda, and Funkadelic. Recorded in 1972, the single flirted with underground notoriety via brushes with Cream Magazine editor Ben Edmonds, who called Flying Wedge the "Black Stooges" but couldn't locate the band, and cursory airplay on Detroit’s revolutionary free-form radio station WABX. Ultimately, the single and group faded with nary a trace.
