Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family chronicle, the story of Death is one of brotherly love and fierce, divinely inspired expression. In the early ‘70s, an unlikely band of brothers came together in Detroit and began playing a style of high velocity music under the name of Death. Three decades later, the Hackney brothers make their debut. A Band Called Death tells unprecedented story of the world’s first black punk band. Filled with timeless music, the documentary rightfully claims Death’s place in music history. As Jake White writes, “The first time the stereo played, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing . . . Ahead of punk, and ahead of their time.”
