Duo from Montreal, Canada. They were originally just Death From Above, but had to change their name for legal reasons (New York's DFA production team).Jesse F. Keeler announced on 4 Aug. 2006 that the band no longer exists.
Death from Above 1979 are the Toronto-based duo of Jesse F. Keeler on bass/synths and Sebastien Grainger on vocals/drums. Refusing to employ a lead guitarist, they played loud synth infused dance punk on the drum and bass combination alone. Originally named just "Death From Above", the duo changed their name after a legal dispute with New York City dance-punk label Death From Above (known as DFA Records since the September 11, 2001 attacks).
