Death – 3 black brothers playing punk rock

Before there was even such a thing as punk music, three black brothers with a band by the name of Death were playing hardcore in Detroit. After recording an album, they quickly disbanded when no one would sign them because of their name and that they were black teens playing white-boy rock instead of the Motown music that was in vogue. The story of the “first black punk band” is chronicled in a new documentary called A Band Called Death. No show times in Montreal it seems but you can watch it on iTunes. Here’s the trailer:
