Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Bobby Hackney (vocals); David Hackney (guitar); Dannis Hackney (drums).
Recording information: United Sound Recording Studios, Detroit, MI.
Photographer: Tandy Hackney.
Not to be confused with the seminal death metal outfit, the maniacs behind FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE were a trio of African-American musicians from Detroit who recorded a handful of rare singles in the early `70s whose ferocious clamor presaged the emergence of hardcore punk. Though the Midwest spawned a few similarly deranged groups in the early `70s like Rocket From The Tombs and Simply Saucer, Death were unique for their undeniable musical virtuosity and uncompromisingly radical political stance.
Artist Overview
Bobby, Dannis, and Davis Hackney were raised in Detroit in the 1960s, and while the African-American brothers reveled in their regional R&B, their love of guitars, bass, and drums was cemented after seeing Iggy & the Stooges live. They recorded their first demos in the mid 1970s, and after the studio owner brought them to the attention of Clive Davis, the brothers signed a deal with Columbia Records. However, Davis backed away when Death refused to change their name, and they wound up releasing the existing songs on their own label. Decades later, Bobby's sons convinced their father to dig out the tapes, and soon after, a deal was reached with Drag City to reissue the lost classics in 2009 as FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.86) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]even blistering tracks....Lost in the dustbins until now was 'Freakin Out,' which sounds like a primal version of the Buzzcocks."
Q (Magazine) (p.115) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's an unexpected triumph. The MC5-esque rabble-rousing of 'Politicians...' is the standout, its remastering making it sound oddly contemporary..."
