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, disbanding 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.
The groovy Castration Squad New Wave Theater appearance.
Castration Squad was a Los Angeles based all-female punk band back in the early 1980’s. Started by Alice Bags roommate Shannon Wilhelm a dark haired Death Punk beauty. She found her deathly beautiful blonde counterpart in another L.A. punk, Mary Bat-Thing later to become famous as Dinah Cancer, the lead singer of 45 Grave.
Among others, Castration Squad’s lineup included Tracy Lea (who was also in Red Cross and appeared as Tanya Hearst in the cult movie Desperate Teenage Lovedolls), Tiffany Kennedy (Cambridge Apostles), Phranc (Nervous Gender, Catholic Discipline), Elissa Bello (Go-Go’s) and Alice Bag.
With Shannon as lead singer and Mary as backup, Castration Squad and its avowed mission “to repair men would leave a lasting impression on the LA Punk scene and all the little punk boys around the country that caught this appearance on New Wave Theater.
