The legendary Death play, appropriately enough, on Halloween night at the New Parish

Go back. Go way, way, back. Go back, to say, 1971, a time before all of the legendary punk bands we are so familiar with now were even really taking off. It was here in Detroit, Michigan, that the three Hackney brothers, David, Bobby, and Dannis, formed a band called Death. If you haven’t heard of them, don’t worry. The boys, who are now recognized as the first black punk band, recorded demos in 1974 that sat unheard of in Bobby’s attic for next thirty years. Although the band broke up in 1977, they reformed in 2009 and in 2012 the independent film A Band Called Death was released about them which reached a fan base larger than that of punk devotees alone.
