A Band Called Death – playing at the Lake Placid Film Forum


OfficialSelectionLeaf2013Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early ‘70s formed a band in their spare bedroom, began playing a few local gigs and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed.



Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now being credited as the first black punk band (hell…the first punk band!), and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers.





Mark Covino and Jeff Howlett’s documentary film has been called a “thoughtful and compelling film, one of the best music documentaries to come out in years.”  (twitchfilm.com)

The film will screen at the 13th annual Lake Placid Film Forum this June.  Screening times will be posted by May 15th.
