Death From Above 1979
Death from Above (nee Death from Above 1979) are the Toronto-based duo of Jesse F. Keeler (bass, synths) and Sebastien Grainger (vocals, drums), which formed in 2001. Refusing to employ a lead guitarist, they played loud synth infused dance punk on the drum and bass combination alone. They added the 1979 suffix to the name following a legal dispute with New York City dance-punk label Death From Above (known as DFA Records since the September 11, 2001 attacks).

LET'S PRETEND WE'RE FAMOUS
This song is a lament on some of the people we have shared stages with and know in the scene. Those who act as if they have already made it and decide to treat those around them like trash as they think the fact they are on stage gives them the status to do so. These are the people who enrage us so we figured why not encapsulate it on this track.more
