Death - For The Whole World To See (original date:US 1975- Reissue: Drag City, 2009)
Death is the three Hackney brothers, fueled by the raucous sounds of Iggy & Co., creating their own take on the emerging sounds of punk. Socially conscious lyrics mixed with a sky-cracking combination of guitar and vocals, all recorded in raw fashion with little in the way of polish. Seek Death, my children!
Here's what a couple of prominent recording artists say about Death's ...For the Whole World to See.
JACK WHITE SAYS:
"The first time the stereo played "Politicians in My Eyes," I couldn't believe what I was hearing. When I was told the history of the band and what year they recorded this music, it just didn't make sense. Ahead of punk, and ahead of their time."
MOS DEF SAYS:
"These dudes were pre-Sex Pistols, pre-Bad Brains, pre-all that shit, and nobody knows about them. I don't understand how the world could forget them."
Christmas comes early! Death waits for no holiday! ...For The Whole World to See is your item of the week.
