Death from Above 1979 are a Toronto-based Canadian dance-punk/noise rock duo. Their album, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine, was released in late 2004. The band broke up in 2006, but announced a reunion in 2011.
Death from Above 1979 members are Jesse F. Keeler on bass, synths, backing vocals and Sebastien Grainger on vocals, drums. Without the help of a lead guitarist they played loud, heavy metal influenced, dance-punk on a bass and drums combination. They were signed to Last Gang Records in Canada, Vice Recordings in the U.S. and 679 Recordings in the UK.
Although they reportedly met at a Sonic Youth concert, Keeler and Grainger sometimes jokingly claimed to have met in prison, on a pirate ship, or in a gay bar, leading some journalists and fans to believe these hoaxes. They also claimed to have lived in a funeral home at one time. In 2005, the video for “Blood On Our Hands” won a VideoFACT award at the MuchMusic Video Awards. They played “Romantic Rights” on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, with Grainger drumming for the first half of the performance and Late Night’s Max Weinberg on the same drum set for the second.
