Argurably THE anthropological find of 2009 was the Detroit punk Never-Wases Death, three brothers/bruTHAS from the riot-torn era of the Motor City who in many orgasmic critics' eyes were the missing link between Iggy & the Stooges and Bad Brains. Now Drag City has stepped in to create the sort of InstaNostalgia that comes with such a rediscovery of music that wasn't discovered to begin with. (The fact that their lost tapes were discovered "in a Detroit basement" add to the ready-made mystique.) In the wake of Spiritual, Mental, Physical, DC's second volume of Death demos (read the Pitchfork review here), the three Hackney brothers will be hitting California on their massive comeback tour: Friday, February 25 at Slim's in SF, Saturday, February 26 at The Echo in LA and....wait, that's it?
