Death - For the Whole World to See (LP real Vinyl ripping)

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. Drag City. 2009.
So of course lots of reviews are going to compare this band to early Bad Brains. Besides the fact that they are all African-American, I don't think that is completely accurate. It's not proto-hardcore here...it's more proto-punk and more on, just straight, brutal Detroit punk rock here.
Songs 6 & 7 feature some of the same vocal peculiarities that the Bad Brains had but this is still 16th note, closed hi-hat punk rock and NOT hardcore ala Middle Class, Discharge, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Die Kreuzen, etc.
These 1975 sessions were cut at the same time the Ramones were cutting their demos in NYC. Totally mindblowing, fast punk here. Hard to believe it was recorded in '75.
If you like Ramones, Johnny Thunders, Dead Boys, Mitch Ryder, Stooges, MC5's 2nd LP, Chuck Berry, Bad Brains' "Black Dots," and a million more things. These 7 songs coming out of the blue like this are truly one of the most historic discoveries of the punk / psych / post-punk / KBD -era to have ever been found.
