Record of the Week... ROCKFIRE FUNK EXPRESS

Posted by Third Man on 23 February 2015

Before Death became Death in '74, the Hackney Brothers (David, Dannis, and Bobby) of Detroit operated under the moniker Rockfire Funk Express. We were so pleased to release the "People Save the World" 7" in May of 2013 and share with the world this piece of un-sung, primordial pre-punk, which was recorded at the same legendary Detroit studio that hosted John Coltrane, John Lee Hooker and MC5: United Sound Systems. After sitting in a can all-but-forgotten for 40 years, we don't want anyone to forget that this single now sits on our website, ripe for the pickin' and listenin'... so... we've made it RECORD OF THE WEEK! Pick your nicely priced copy here for only $4 this week. You're welcome.
