The early '70s African-American proto-punk band Death — comprised of brothers Bobby, David and Dannis Hackney — languished in obscurity until the group's music was rediscovered by one of the band member's sons in the '00s. The Drag City record label was impressed and officially released For All the World to See — and it only took about 35 years. The LP features punk-flavored songs by the power trio, recorded years before punk officially hit. This track is the band's calling card, a tight, rough indictment against "the man," jam-packed with attitude and energy. Tonight, the surviving members of the band (David Hackney died in 2000) will head up a show with Rough Francis, an outfit fronted by the Hackney brothers' sons.

I am blown away. Cannot *wait* to hear the rest of this album. So glad they are finally getting their day in the sun, but waaaaay too late.
