Yup, punky & funky and ahead of everyone else - the "break" is like what "heavy metal" was doing late 80's / 90's - intense and energetic. Like it.

Absolute radio 70s ...i end up listening to stuff that I would never normally even think of, changing my views on many bands...some I can't believe I liked, but sound rubbish now, and stuff I hated but think is great now...


...i must be getting old  :o

So back in the day there was a band called Death and they were really pre-punk punk type rock and roll crossover. I remember one track called Freakin' Out that was out at the time, well pre-punk like back in the days of when listening to John Peel got you all sorts of fantastic music.

Anyway, last week I was talking to an American guy about music and he said he liked Death, not Napalm Death, just Death and I thought bloody hell, blast from the past... so I was going on about pre-punk Death and he was along for the ride then said... Not that's not them, his Death band were Death Metal pioneers Death and they didn't have any black guys in it where my Death were all black guys.

I didn't know about his Death and he knew nothing about my Death which was really weird. So yesterday I was feeling crap and lethargic so did a bit of research on my Death.

They were a family in Detroit, pater was a minister. Of the kids, three started a band and David Hackney was the driving force behind the band who refused to join in the Motown craze and did his own Rock/Punk music with his two brothers. I guess for the same reason Parliament never really took off, they were too far off the mainstream - But their music was unique and it still is if you ask me.

They split up, David keeping writing his style and music going but to himself not gigging or anything - Bobby and Dannis went off to do Christian Rock and later more successful with Reggae.

Just after a wedding David told his mum she'd better prepare for one of her sons to die, he gave all the studio tapes to his brother and telling everyone (again) that this music would one day be big. Then he died (lung cancer) and everyone got on with their lives, cleaning during the day meant Dannis could play at nights etc. kids came and life went on.

The kids formed a band called Rough Francis and they found out about the Death studio tapes and started doing the songs, it's good stuff:

So Death were back on the map without David but even got back in the recording studio, Rough Francis do covers from time to time and even Amazon has a film about them called A Band Called Death which I've just watched and it's bloody good. They even have a Arseface page https://en-gb.facebook.com/DeathPunkFromDetroit/

Have a listen, I think they're a bit special hence the protracted post, what do you think?

I find the Amazon catalogue pretty good (I've got the amazon unlimited but the cheap deal that only runs on my Echo), don't think I've found anything I like that's not on there yet,  but the playlists/channel are a bit limited, I find I keep getting the same songs cropping up whenever I listen to particular channels.
Spotify is supposed to be a lot better for playlists. Not tried it yet though, or Google play.  I think with the Echo I'm limited to Amazon or Spotify.

Tempted to get a full subscription to Amazon Music or Spotify but they do seem ridiculously expensive when I've already got loads of music.

I have Amazon Prime so get their basic level of music, but they offered me a free 3 month trial of their full music package and I was a little underwhelmed.

A lot of bands I like are missing, and in some cases they have a few older albums that don't get many sales anymore but not the more recent stuff that presumably they want to exploit by forcing people to buy the album rather than stream.

With my new car I got a 3 year subscription to Napster (to stream music direct to the car stereo which is quite cool) but again it's missing some stuff you'd expect.

Out of all the ones I've used I thought Google Play was the best.  Haven't tried Spotify or iTunes though.

That's not bad, but I'm not sure anyone's yet managed to improve on the original of The Sound of Silence.


I can't find the album version on YouTube to post up a link (it is on Amazon music and Spotify though), but I'm currently listening to Ich Will by Steve 'n'Seagulls.  Probably the finest example of a Finnish bluegrass cover of German industrial metal out there :D


Bought myself a fancy pair of noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones a while back, so have dumped about 20Gb of music to my phone.  Sony's music player on my phone isn't as good at managing music as my (non Bluetooth) iPod though.  Tempted to get a full subscription to Amazon Music or Spotify but they do seem ridiculously expensive when I've already got loads of music.
