BH004: Dunno How This Feels; I Like electric eels (...and Death)

In Episode 4, Barely Human turns to the space between the hippies and the punks to find the bands who didn't fit in with the bands who didn't fit in. From the US midwest in the early 1970s, we find Cleveland proto-punk act the electric eels, who were toying with the tropes of punk years before the movement started. Then we look a band from Detroit comprised of three brothers who turned down a twenty thousand dollar recording contract in 1975 because they refused to change their name: Death.~~ Help fund Season 2!
