Death
Death
Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was a band called Death. Punk before punk existed, three teenage brothers in the early '70s formed a band in their spare bedroom, began playing a few local gigs and even pressed a single in the hopes of getting signed. But this was the era of Motown and emerging disco. Record companies found Death's music— and band name—too intimidating, and the group were never given a fair shot, dropped from their production contract before they even completed one album. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family love story, A Band Called Death chronicles the incredible fairy-tale journey of what happened almost three decades later, when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of the attic and found an audience several generations younger. Playing music impossibly ahead of its time, Death is now being credited as the first black punk band (hell...the first punk band!), and are finally receiving their long overdue recognition as true rock pioneers.

Skeptic?
Currently Birmingham's longest-running punk band. We've played all over the Southeast, hitting Alabama (obviously), Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana at least once. Florida, your day will come...eventually. We've played bars, all-ages clubs, parties, and even a mental institution. Over the years, we've been lucky enough to play with some amazing touring bands (Agnostic Front, UK Subs, MDC, Murphy's Law, The Vibrators, Zero Boys, Fear, Fishbone, Koffin Kats, etc.) as well as countless regional and local bands. For a complete list of every show we've ever played, check the "Notes" section on this site and the Facebook page. We've also managed to put out four full-length CD's, a 7", several CD EP's, and have been on more than a few compilations.

While there may be a bit of metal and the like thrown in, we have been and always will be a punk band. You do this because you can't imagine doing anything else, and the day that stops, so will we. Slowly putting together songs for an eventual 12", but don't hold your breath, as we take our time writing songs. So there, that's it. If you want to know anything else, you'll just have to ask...
