Artist: DEATH
Title: For The Whole World To See
Format: CD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Their time in the studio was overseen by engineer Jim Vitti, whose work with Parliament/ Funkadelic seems to have informed his decision to record Death in raw fashion with little polish, showcasing the organic power relationships within the trio. The songs recorded there make up ?For the Whole World to See, which today blasts from the speakers as a fresh and inspired early entry in the category of punk rock. Death had a single pressed, Politicians In My Eyes b/w Keep On Knocking, selling them at their shows and on the street. Things werent really going anywhere when they heard from Columbia Records president Clive Davis. He was interested, but he had one demand -- theyd have to change their name. David, acting as the bands leader, would have no part of it, a decision that ultimately brought an end to Death. Moving to New England, David, Bobby and Dannis reconnected with their faith, forming the Christian rock-n-roll band The 4th Movement, whose self-released early-80s album joined Deaths 45 as a sought-after obscurity for the next generation. 2009 is the time that Death is finally here ...For The Whole World to See. ...For The Whole World to See is the first full-length release EVER for the band called Death -- with only one 7" single to their name, and that usually goes for about a grand per. Thats $1000! For those who do have the single, the remastered sound here will break you up." -Drag City.

Title: North Street / Were Gonna Make It
Format: 7"
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Death III is coming! In advance of the release of EVEN MORE previously unreleased recordings from the vaults of DEATH, the two songs here represent the album in showcasing two different eras following For The Whole World to See. "North Street" was recorded in 1980, as Death was transitioning into their next incarnation as The Fourth Movement. The song was part of a studio session in their new home base in Vermont, capturing the HACKNEY Brothers full-bodied sound with the same fidelity of their 1975 recordings that made up For the Whole World to See. The B-side is a special song that represents some of the last music David Hackney ever recorded." - Drag City.

Title: Spiritual Mental Physical
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
Repressed. "Spiritual-Mental-Physical is a collection of wild early DEATH demos, presenting the three young HACKNEY brothers consolidating their powers as they embark on a trip into pure rock and roll music. For many years following the emergence of punk rock, nothing changed. Punk bands either signed contracts and played the rock band game or they lived in a world parallel to the world of commercial rock and roll. Farther along came "the year that punk broke," a puzzling decade and a half after the whole thing had first been absorbed into the mainstream in the last of the 1970s. And so it was. The books were written; the pronouncements made. Then came news of Death. Theyd self-released a single in 1976; the tracks made it onto an unheard punk compilation a couple decades later. In 2008, an obsessive young man tracked them down and found that the surviving two brothers had master tapes from all those years ago. These made up the truly senses-shattering album...For The Whole World To See. Suddenly, the book was open again and the history of punk rock needed to be rewritten to include Death. The sounds on ...For the Whole World To See are those of young men, scorching their influences in the process of becoming new. Spiritual-Mental-Physical gives us Death by transistor radio, with a tinnyyet- furious sound representing the 1970s environment of Death. Here, the musical landscape that inspired them is more clearly defined as they demo material that didnt make it to the studio, but shares the same ferocious bent as "Politicians In My Eyes," "Keep On Knocking," and the rest of ...For the Whole World To See. Spiritual-Mental-Physical is an inside look at Deaths early days, one that fans of the group and fans of punk rock (and, indeed, rock of all kinds) are sure to enjoy for the rest of time." -Drag City.

Title: N.E.W.
Format: CD
Label: Tryangle
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Since the discovery of Death in 2008 and the release of the archival LP ...For the Whole World to See, the story has been often told. Three African-American brothers, David, Dannis, and Bobby Hackney, tapped into the surging energy of their hometown rock-and-roll scene (mid-70s Detroit) to produce a style and a set of songs that, while completely unappreciated in their day, proved later to be a powerful missing link in the evolution of punk rock. The question always asked was, Will there be a new record? Now, there literally is, and Death and Drag City are proud to bring it to you, titled simply N.E.W. Inspired by the positivity brought to them by ever-increasing numbers of new fans, the current performing Death (Bobby Hackney, Dannis Hackney, and Bobbie Duncan) completed several songs started back in the late 1970s by Bobby and David, and composed entirely new songs that continue the timeless vibe, feel, and resolve of Death with remarkable drive and vigor. For many years after disbanding the original Death, Bobby and Dannis played different styles of music, but with the same deep spiritual investment. Bringing that spirit back to Death, their ability to make new songs in the same vein is fantastic." - Tryangle.
