Death (Hackney Brothers) - For the Whole World To See

Death were the Hackney brothers, three young black musicians in the melting-pot of mid-70s Detroit. After they began to absorb the rock and roll sounds of local heroes like Alice Cooper and Iggy and the Stooges, they traded the strength of the r’n’b and funk that they’d been raised on for the strength of the rock music that was in the air all around them. After refusing to change its name, the band was turned away by Clive Davis of Columbia Records, and the album was never completed. The surviving songs were released in 2009 by Drag City.
