After fading into obscurity, 70's punk band Death came back in 2009 thanks to a reissue from Drag City, a smart cover from the Dirtbombs — oh, and that movie (apparently, if you are a Detroit artist, the key to success is to be the subject of a documentary decades after your prime).
Of course, Drag City is prepping a new collection of remaining material. Called Death III, it features songs the brothers recorded in 1975, '76, '80 and '92.
Check out the new (old) track "North Street," recorded in 1980, here.
