A Rock band ahead of its time named Death!

Death was a garage rock and protopunk demo band formed in Detroit, Michigan, in 1971 by the brothers Bobby (bass, vocals), David (guitar), and Dannis (drums) Hackney. The African American trio started out as an R&B band but switched to rock after seeing an Alice Cooper show. Music critic Peter Margasak (incorrectly denoting the youngest brother) retrospectively wrote of their musical direction: “The youngest of the brothers, guitarist David, pushed the group in a hard-rock direction that presaged punk, and while this certainly didn’t help them find a following in the mid-70s, today it makes them look like visionaries.” The band broke up by 1977 but reformed in 2009 when the Drag City label released their 70s demos for the first time.

The World

I see trees of green, red roses, too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
Bright sunny days, dark sacred nights
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies
Are also on the faces of people walkin’ by
I see friends shakin’ hands, sayin’, “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you”

I see babies cry, what watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world

And I say to myself
What a wonderful world

Fred Flintstone could get into the Groove

Fred Flintstone is the main character of the animated sitcom The Flintstones, which aired during prime-time on ABC during the original series’ run from 1960 to 1966.

Fred lives in the fictional prehistoric town of Bedrock, a world where dinosaurs coexist with modernized cavepeople and the cavepeople enjoy “primitive” versions of modern conveniences such as telephones, automobiles, and washing machines. Fred’s trademark catchphrase yell is “yabba dabba doo!”, a phrase that was originally his club’s cheer, and later adopted as part of the theme song from the third season on and used in the 1994 live-action Flintstones movie.

Nitro Explosion!

Richard Anthony Monsour (May 4, 1937 – March 16, 2019), known professionally as Dick Dale, was an American rock guitarist. He was a pioneer of surf music, drawing on Middle Eastern music scales and experimenting with reverberation. Dale was known as “The King of the Surf Guitar”, which was also the title of his second studio album.

Dale worked closely with the manufacturer Fender to produce custom-made amplifiers including the first-ever 100-watt guitar amplifier. He pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop equipment that was capable of producing a louder guitar sound without sacrificing reliability.

 

“Who Was In My Room Last Night?”

I’m flying…
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, flying away, I’m flying away
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying

All night long, my body burned
The sheets were wet and cold
The lights were on, my eyes were gone
And any second lose control

The pounding on my window’s
Just the pounding in my head
I wonder who was in my room last night
Who the hell was in my bed?

There must have been a body there
I swear I felt some flesh
It took a little time, but I figured they were mine
There were fingers going down my chest

My mouth went through the ceiling
And my body fell to the floor
I couldn’t find a key ’cause there was no hole I could see
And someone had moved the door

The cops, the priest, the crisis line
And no one really had a clue
No one to tell us who was touchin’ me
Or exactly what I could do

My throat was dry, my hopes were high
But nothing really ever got said
But who was in my room last night?
Who the hell was in my bed?
