Death at Lincoln Center

Death highlighted last weekend's Detroit Breakdown at Lincoln Center. Check out the NY Times review of their performance.

Great photo of Bobby Hackney rockin’ out last weekend at Lincoln Center.  Here’s what the New York Times had to say about their show:

Death made the concert’s most genre-defying music. It’s a taut, precise trio, with the brothers Bobby Hackney on bass and Dannis Hackney on drums; Bobby Duncan on guitar replaced David Hackney, the original guitarist, who died in 2000. Death’s songs from the early 1970s — which were not released until 2009 on “…For the Whole World to See” (Drag City) — were neatly structured, multipart compositions. Some rode bass lines with guitar interjections, anticipating the Police as well as punk; some were garage-rock tirades against ex-girlfriends and politicians. The band said it would release more material this year.

    Once again bruva Rob, thank you for bringing this kind of wonderful and amazing work to the table. Had I grown up with these guys in their neighborhood in Detroit, we probably would have been jamming together. Keep up the great work…best, Bookerman

    Thank you for the kind words, Bookerman! Yeah, there's so much amazing creativity coming out of our community on a global scale. Kinda hard to keep up with it all.

    Anyway, be well, and thanks for your ongoing support!
