A Band Called Death

uh, y'know, the sounds that sound good together... sometimes... and sometimes sounds like the disgusting "squish squish" sound Slicker's mom makes whenever she walks

A Band Called Death

Postby Diabolical » Tue Oct 01, 2013 11:43 pm

In the early 70's three brothers from Detroit formed a band.

They were punk before punk.
They were called Death.
And they were black.

Their music went undiscovered for over 30 years.

I watched the documentary titled A Band Called Death last night and it was pretty great.

Trailer:


Music:

Watching those reminded me of Rodriguez who was another Detroit artist that went unrecognized. I watched his documentary and he was actually a superstar in what was I think South Africa but he had no clue. He has since went on to semi-fame and even did a concert there. Pretty fucking cool if you ask me.
Sweet berry wine!

I read the Rodriguez doc was faked. He'd been moderately famous and performing professionally the whole time. But the filmmakers made it look like he was facedown in a gutter.

Not having Netflix actually sounds like a pretty good excuse to me. :P
