Death From Above (formerly Death From Above 1979) is a Toronto-based Canadian indie rock duo. Members are Jesse F.Keeler on bass/synths and Sebastien Grainger on vocals/drums. Refusing to employ a lead guitarist, they play loud synthinfused noise-funk on the drum and bass combination alone.Originallynamed just "Death From Above", the duo changed theirname after a legal dispute with New York City dance-funk label DeathFrom Above.Death from Above had been a working nameof LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks. Death from Above 1979 is currently recording a new album, which it plans to release in three versions: the traditionalbass/drums lineup,afull band lineup with musicians assembled by Grainger, and a remix album. It has been rumored thatSebastian and Jesse met in aprison,are a gay couple, and now live in a funeral home. These statements (however inspiring orentertaining) are false. They did meet at aSonicYouth concert. In 2005 the video for "Romantic Rights" won a VideoFACT awardat the MuchMusic Video Music Awards. Breaking the boundaries of quantity in a musical project is fun, especially if you're young, Canadian, and have a knack for"illogically"makinga funky rush of majestic melody. Enter Death From Above. "South Carolina kid is heating things up. His wounds are bleeding and we're filling the cup. This game will save us if we don'tdieyoung.C'mon, c'mon now yea have some fun." --from wikipedia Death From Above 1979 broke up on August 4th, 2006, by a post on their website. « hide
