US Import. Death were a black power trio from Detroit who released a single in 1975 and pretty much disappeared after that. Inspired by the raw Rock ‘N’ Roll of the Stooges and MC5, the three brothers moved away from their Funk/R&B roots into a new realm…. for the Whole World to See features the two songs from the single (‘Keep on Knocking’ and ‘Politicians in My Eyes’) and five other tracks.
MOS DEF SAYS:
“These dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows about them. I don’t understand how the world could forget them.
You really should read up on the history of this Rock n’ Roll artifact. A google search will help; something like “death band punk 1974″… The album reminds me of these bands: MC5, The Jam, Zero Boys, Early Police, RadioBirdMan – to name a few. If any of those bands are at your top 10, then this is a must have piece in your collection. NOTE: They are also selling it on vinyl on here!!!
The story to this piece of work is very interesting not to mention inspiring to say the least. The songs? All are hits in my mind. I just wish there were more!”
