“Hot Ice” – STATEN ISLAND, NY – 1974-1975 – Prog Rock
I can recall the first time I heard my dad’s songs. I had never heard anything like it. And at 30 years old I have still not heard anything else quite like it. Its uniqueness is powerful because it encourages the listener to experience music in a different and deeper way. While not mainstream, they still played Clubs in NYC and Staten Island and had loyal fans. –Tom DeMarco, son of Guitarist Tommy Marcinek
Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was DEATH. A Band Called Death is a documentary 42 years in the making. It’s one of the most unlikely true stories you’ll ever hear, and one of the greatest triumphs in rock history.
They killed 1,000,000 people. And they can’t wait to show you how they did it in Joshua Oppenheimer’s groundbreaking doc The Act Of Killing. Executive produced by Werner Herzog and Errol Morris. In theaters July 19.
