Boomkat Product Review:
In the same week that saw Secretly Canadian reissuing the two Zero Boys albums, Drag City digs up this classic slice of American garage punk. In Truth, tracks like the killer opener 'Keep On Knocking' have as much in common with Kiss as they do with obvious antecedents and fellow Detroit denizens MC5. Death sprang to local notoriety when their 1974 demo fell into the hands of producer Don Davis, who had previously found success with Stax recording artists Johnnie Taylor And The Dramatics. Davis then booked the band a slot at Detroit's renowned United Sound Recording Studio, where they were recorded by Parliament and Funkadelic engineer Jim Vitti. The band's resultant sound is warm and very intimate, resulting in a punchy, crunching guitar assault led by mightily powerful riffs as heard on the ace 'Freakin' Out' and 'You're A Prisoner'. The band's one and only 7" single is something of a collector's item, allegedly fetching around $1000 per copy, but the two tracks featured on that release ('Politicians In My Eyes' and 'Keep On Knocking') are both included here, so there's no longer any need to splash out. Recommended.
