A Band Called Death (7/11, 10:30pm)

7/11/2013 - 10:30PM

Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk in attitude, spirit and volume before “punk” existed, these three teenage brothers played a few local gigs in the mid-’70s and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed — but in the era of Motown and emerging disco, record companies found both their lightning-in-a-bottle tunes and their intimidating band name too much to handle, and Death disbanded before they’d ever really started. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the band’s incredible fairy-tale journey, when, decades after breaking up, a dusty vintage demo tape made its way out of the attic and into the ears of a rabid new audience several generations younger. Finally receiving their long overdue recognition as the first black punk band — hell, one of the first punk bands! — Death continues to shake the house down, as this deeply touching doc shows off in droves.
Dirs. Jeff Howlett & Mark Covino, 2012, DCP, 98 min.
