I don’t even know where to start. It’s the early 1970s and a band of African American dudes from Detroit form a band. They start of playing R&B but quickly turn to an altogether different direction. Punk before punk. The band signed to a label but refused to change their name and then got dropped. They had recorded half of an album. Their story is being told in a documentary called A Band Called Death. In the meantime, I would recommend listening to the recordings. Big thanks to the always fresh Nerdcore for finding this one.
