The Detroit punk band was removed from obscurity when the 2012 documentary about their brief attempt at rock stardom in the ’70s was released. Death III has music recorded between ’78-’92 and pays tribute to David Hackney who was the group’s visionary. “North Street” is from the 9-song tracklisting and they are currently touring in support of the album.

Subject-wise she tackles mental illness and the importance of enjoying the simple things in life and she has a song dedicated to Fela.
