Death

Unusual, interesting story here if you are unfamiliar. In 1975  an African American hard-punk band from Detroit (where else?) attempted to put out a release on Columbia. After refusing to change the bands name, Columbia's Clive Davis sent them packing. Only seven songs were completed and the album was never released. A band named "Rough Francis" performed these songs live a few times, Rough Francis were comprised of the three sons of Death's original bassist. As these performances garnered enough acclaim to be significant, the two surviving original members of Death recruited a new guitarist and decided to record the original seven tracks.

"....For the Whole World to See..." is a solid and years ahead of it's time set of garage-punk Detroit style, with a touch of that Detroit blues style thrown in. Perhaps an African American MC5? I don't know, but if you have never heard this often talked about and seldom heard record, THIS is one you need to hear. You WILL NOT be sorry, it's a fantastic record. (Bobby Hackney, bass/vocals, David Hackney, guitar/vocals, Dannis Hackney, drums/vocals......don't miss, in particular "Rock N Roll Victim" and "You're a Prisoner".
