05 Jul The Script Lab – A Band Called Death
There wasn’t a sound that represented black music and its crossover marketability more than 1960’s Motown. Detroit’s crowned jewel of course gave birth to The Jacksons, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross & The Supremes among others who went on to break various racial and commercial boundaries individually. As its era highpoint ended, the label had cemented its legacy as one of pop’s biggest influences from then on. Of course, the time period also brought forth the world domination of The Beatles. Finding inspiration from both sounds would be punk rock’s best kept secret; not discovered until several decades later.
That band would simply be named Death.
