Death was a punk band, before the Ramones or even Sex Pistols, that was made up of brothers David, Bobby and Dannis Hackney who are credited as being the first black punk band. However, it wasn't until recently that a demo tape got dusted off and people finally heard them. Following in "Searching for Sugar Man's" footsteps, there is a documentary coming out about them called "A Band Called Death." There is a similar story between the two documentaries, both Death and Rodriguez are from Detroit and neither one really had much success until recent years. This documentary does seem a bit more funny and crazy (they are a punk band after all), but it is still just as intriguing of a story. From what I can tell from the trailer, this movie looks pretty awesome. Check it out below and click here to download a free song from Death.
There is a lot to be excited about on Saturday, so make some time to get to UHF between Orion and all of the other shows going on this weekend for this unique chance to see Death!
