45 Revolutions: Death

Death was a black garage-rock band formed by the brothers Bobby, David and Dannis Hackney in Detroit, Michigan in 1971. The band started as an r&b outfit, switching gears after seeing an Alice Cooper show. The group only released one 45 in 1976 on Tryangle Records, the monstrous "Politicians In My Eyes" b/w "Keep On Knockin'," before breaking up in 1977. The band was re-discovered in 2009 when the original 7" record was released on CD by Drag City, leading to reunion shows and the release of other demo material.
