Death From Above 1979
Toronto duo Jesse F Keeler and Sebastien Grainger made up the formidable Death From Above 1979. Originally called simply Death From Above, the pair were forced to change their name after a legal dispute with New York record label DFA Records. They managed to make music that was part dance, part punk, part rock, without ever stepping near a guitar. Singles such as ‘Blood on Our Hands’ and ‘Black History Month’ found them favour with the nu wave indie-dance rockers, and true to form they blew the roof off at Trash in 2005. Sadly they split up in 2006, but both have continued in equally innovative and exciting projects, such as Jesse’s MSTRKRFT or Sebastian’s The Mountains.
