“People have been saying that name for centuries behind doors, let’s see if they can say it to our face.” – Kenneth “Reno” Richards (2020 interview).
This is a small update but it’s also a massive one because it helps to unravel part of the mystery of one of the Detroit punk bands I thought was lost to history – the all-Black group known as The Niggers.
A few weeks ago a member of the group posted comments on the band page. After reaching out, an interview was conducted and today I present to you the reflections of Kenneth “Reno” Richards – the bass player for the group.
Take a listen – it’s a ride!
