A BAND CALLED DEATH [Trailer] from Drafthouse Films on Vimeo.
These guys were punk years before people had heard punk music. They were nearly unheard and unknown of until nearly 35 years after they broke up when a demo tape was found, remastered, and released upon the world. Even though there are only 7 songs on their 1974 recorded and 2009 released album For The Whole World to See, it packs more punch then almost any other band has managed no matter the length of their career. Since this was released 4 years ago it has been a constant on my playlist. I am really lloking forward to this movie and seeing more about this band and their story. Its too bad that the lead singer was already dead by the time people heard of this band and promoters were trying to book them shows. Look them up and buy this album.

A fan made music video for the Captain Murphy track The Killing Joke, that Captain Murphy liked so much he made it the official video. Below is a 35 minute video released last year on VHS for the Duality Mixtape that had the internet guessing Captain Murphy's real identity. It was later revealed at LA's Low End Theory that the true identity of the Captain was producer Flying Lotus rap alter ego. A few weeks later on New Years Day I was lucky enough to be seeing FlyLo when he closed out his set with a few Captain Murphy tracks. You can download the whole mixtape at the bottom of http://www.captainmurphy.xxx/
