Death (l to r): Dannis Hackney, Bobby Hackney and Bobbie Duncan

Great to see the resurgence of, and renewed interest in, Death, the proto-punk band from Detroit that predated the Bad Brains by almost 5 years.  As The New York Times noted, they formed the missing link “between the high-energy hard rock of Detroit bands like the Stooges and MC5 from the late 1960s and early ’70s and the high-velocity assault of punk from its breakthrough years of 1976 and ’77.”

June will also see the world premiere of Jeff Howlet and Mark Covino’s document  on the band, A Band Called Death, at the LA Film Festival on June 16, with a follow-on screening on June 19:

Sat. Jun 16, 7:20pm, Regal Cinemas/LA LIVE (world premiere)
Tue. Jun 19, 7:10pm, Regal Cinemas/LA LIVE

More info on the LA Film Festival is here.

In the meantime, enjoy some “Relief”!
