Keep on Knocking – Death

by George Champale on June 7, 2012

Detroit’s Death were brothers in both senses of the word- Bobby (bass, vocals), David (guitar), and Dennis (drums) Hackney started out as a funk band before morphing into one of the Motor City’s few African-American hard rock acts. The story is they decided to change their direction towards hard rock after attending an Alice Cooper concert, and rock hard they did. The band drew the attention of music mogul Clive Davis, who in 1975 financed the seven-song demo that “Keep On Knocking” comes from. Davis wanted the band to change their name to something more consumer friendly, but the Hackney brothers refused to budge. Faced with this intransigence, Davis dropped them and the demo was shelved until 2009 when Drag City, an independent label, released the recordings under the title “For All The World To See.” Death wears their Detroit stripes proudly and you can certainly hear the MC5, Stooges and even a bit of the Nuge in “Keep On Knocking.” Death adds their own indelible stamp to this mix, which makes our TOTD a rarely heard but true proto-punk classic.
