A Band Called Death

( 1 )

Overview

Filmmakers Mark Christopher Covino and Jeff Howlett profile obscure, early-1970s Detroit proto-punk outfit Death, who disbanded before releasing a single album, but who were vindicated nearly 30 years later when their 1974 demo tape was released to much fanfare. Formed by three Detroit siblings six years before the Sex Pistols stormed the airwaves with "God Save the Queen," Death's blisteringly aggressive music was initially dismissed by record labels more interested in cashing-in on the glitzy disco craze.

Formed by three Detroit siblings six years before the Sex Pistols stormed the airwaves with "God Save the Queen," Death's blisteringly aggressive music was initially dismissed by record labels more interested in cashing-in on the glitzy disco craze. As contracts were cancelled and debts mounted, the band that ushered in a dangerous new era of music vanished into obscurity. Three decades later, however, the discovery of Death's only demo reveals just how far ahead of their time the band really was.

    Cheating Death for a Rebirth

    An excellent story that will have you checking your attics, basements, and storage units for any old records or reel-to-reel tapes. This story is told with so much heart and soulful feeling. The lows are gut wrenching and the highs are above the clouds. There is no way you can see this Doc and come away feeling anything but joy. These guys deserve all of the praise and all of the good things that are happening to them now. I caught them at Afro-Punk 2013 in Brooklyn. They ripped up the stage apart and out performed many of the artists at the two day event. Don't miss this and better yet, pass it on - pass it forward!
