C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Death

If you've seen the documentary, "A Band Called Death," you might be familiar with these guys. If not, then you should definitely check it out when you get the chance.

These three brothers started off as a funk band, but, after seeing The Who live, they switched to rock. However, what they ended up with was a unique sound all their own. Their heavy playing style and political lyrics are often described as protopunk in terms of style, having preceded early punk bands like The Ramones and the whole punk movement. They definitely had more chops than the punk bands that came after them, thanks to their funk origins, but their sound is comparable to some sort of cross between The Who's early work and Jimi Hendrix, which is a pretty cool concept. Eventually, they disbanded in 1977, going on to reform as a gospel rock group called The 4th Movement and then going on to play in other projects until their guitarist, David Hackney, died of lung cancer in 2000. However, in the Late 2000s-2010s, Death released all their recorded music on one album and started receiving a lot of attention. After playing a few festivals, a documentary about their history, A Band Called Death, was released in 2012, sending their comeback into full swing.
