Just Announced: Screamers November 23 2020
Words cannot express how excited we are to announce the Screamers' first ever official release.
Formed in 1977 by Tomata du Plenty (vocals), Tommy Gear (synthesizers, vocals), David Brown (electric piano) and KK Barrett (drums), the Screamers were deeply linked to Los Angeles' first wave punk scene, yet their music and high-energy performances stood apart – defying classification and evoking intense audience reactions.
As Jon Savage writes in the liner notes, "These five statements of intent transcend Punk and project forward into the future: to the analog synth wave of the late '70s and beyond. Sourced from the original reel-to-reels, they are a revelation compared to the countless copies that have been circulating by multiple generations of tape-traders. Here, for the first time, is the Screamers' initial and legendary manifesto."
Screamers Demo Hollywood 1977 features cover artwork of Gary Panter's iconic logo.
Limited edition translucent red vinyl. Also available on black vinyl.
