MC5 legend Wayne Kramer has provided guitar and produced the debut album by unknown NEW YORK songwriter ALEX SNIDERMAN.

Sniderman said of his experience of working with Kramer: “He’s poor and famous. And immensely talented. It was an honour to work with such a brilliant musician, and wonderful person.”
A spokesperson for Kramer told nme.com: “At the moment Wayne is working as a producer and A&R man with a number of bands, he is involved with the website [url=]www.musicblitz.com in an A&R capacity. He enjoys helping out if he can.”
Kramer has just finished producing and playing bass on a track for Mudhoney. In addition to this he partially produced the John Sinclair & His Blues Scholers 1996 record ‘Full Circle’, which he also guested on as a guitarist.
A spokesperson for Kramer added he is about to begin production work on a record by LA band The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs, who are Kramer‘s “proteges” and who he has been working with consistently over the last two years.
MC5 released a best of compilation, ‘The Big Bang! The Best Of MC5’, in March through Rhino. The album featured their first three singles together for the first time, as well as material spanning their entire career.
