    Is anyone here familiar with this band or seen the documentary about them? Its an amazing story about life coming full circle and falling into place. Its also sad and touching.

    Death is an incredible band too. Way before their time.

    ....also, to be topical to the board, the first voice you hear in the documentary is Artie Lange's.

    Here's their magnum opus, their best song....

    Even if you don't want to sit through an entire documentary, watch the movie trailer and listen to the song (which was recorded in 1974) and see if that sparks an interest.

    I really wish someone would make a documentary about them. They actually have an interesting story.

    Never heard of them or the doc, but if you like it and them I'm sure I will too. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I'll have to watch later though, cause as of now I'm watching a fake wedding on a atrocious reality show called Big Brother. If they provide more alcohol (so far one bottle of wine) it could be pretty epic.

    You're damned if you do, damned if you don't. No one posts in the Music forum, you post it in the Stern forum assholes alert for it not being Stern related, you post it here no one takes it seriously.

    Please listen to the song I posted. Detroit, 1974, total Proto Punk. The documentary came out not too long ago, but I've been cranking these guys since i hear about them a couple of years ago.

    :jj: Don't forget their black metal side project. The drums were just a dude pounding on a pillow.

    Yet, I see so many unrelated topics in the Stern Forum. :grad:

    I haven't seen this, but it sounds like its right up my alley.
