Death Politicians In My Eyes
...For the Whole World to See Drag City Records 2009
Detroit proto-punk band consisting of brothers David, Bobby, and Dannis Hackney. "Politicians In My Eyes - whose lyrical content is relevant especially today - was recorded in 1976 as the lead single to a 7-song EP funded by Clive Davis and Columbia Records. The band refused to change its name and tied artistic vision, so they were canned by Davis, with the proposed album shelved until 2009, where it was re-discovered and released in full by Drag City Records!
Pure Hell Courageous Cat
Noise Addiction Welfare Records 2016
Cited by members of the band and music historians as America's first black punk band. Unappreciated during its time, though they were a heavy influence on early Bad Brains. Pure Hell, like Death, had their only album shelved for close to three decades, with Henry Rollins "re-discovering" the band and releasing their only LP on his label.
Bad Brains Re-Ignition
I Against I Bad Brains Records 2019

Screaming Trees Standing on the Edge
Clairvoyance Hall of Records 2005
Two days ago, the musical world saw the passing of singer/songwriter Mark Lanegan. Born in 1964, Lanegan produced a prolific body of work going back to 1984. He fronted grunge band Screaming Trees, with this (the first of several LPs) released in 1986 and heavy on neo-psyschedlia.
Queens of the Stone Age In the Fade
Rated R Interscope 2007
Youngsters too young to remember grunge likely became acquainted with Mark Lanegan through his contributions to Queens of the Stone Age, whose gravely vocals served as a welcome contrast to Josh Homme's more dulcet tone.
Mark Lanegan Head
Bubblegum Beggars Banquet 2004
Lanegan also released 12 studio albums. "Bubblegum" - his sixth, was his first solo album to hit several music charts. As he had done for other artists, this release included guest appearances by PJ Harvey, Wendy Rae Fowler, members of Guns N Roses, and many others. RIP Mark Lanegan.
