Death From Above 1979
- Who they are: vocalist/drummer Sebastien Grainger and bass/synth wizard Jesse F. Keeler
- What they sound like: if snarling guitars and near-shouted vocals got married and had babies that danced and head-banged all day long to their parents’ music
- Why they tacked on “1979” to the end of their name: to settle a legal dispute with the label DFA records, whose moniker also stands for Death From Above
- The band’s debut: 2004’s You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine, which introduced hard-rock fans to the world of tightly wound, primitive brand of dance-punk
- Their first TV appearance: in 2005 on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, where they invited Max Weinberg to drum during half of their hit, “Romantic Rights”
- Their hiatus: 2006–2010
- Their return: 2011, when the duo reunited for a set at EdgeFest, then a Canadian tour, then a brand-new album
- Their latest: 2014’s The Physical World, which once again pulsates with tracks such as “Virgins,” “Trainwreck 1979,” and “Government Trash”
