Death from Above 1979


Death from Above 1979 (nee Death from Above) are the Toronto-based duo of Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths) and Sebastien Grainger (vocals, drums), whiuch formed in 2001. Refusing to employ a lead guitarist, they played loud synth infused dance punk on the drum and bass combination alone. They added the 1979 suffix to the name following a legal dispute with New York City dance-punk label Death from Above (known as Dfa Records since the September 11, 2001 attacks). "Death from above" was written on a helicopter in the movie Apocalypse Now, which was copyrighted in 1979.
