The Screamers--Demo's 1977-1978 LP

LA Art Punk

and now something totally different than normally
something non-japanese (Shock!)


The Screamers were a punk rock group active in the Los Angeles, California area in the late 1970s.

Included among the first wave of LA's punk rockers, the label "techno-punk" was applied to the band by the Los Angeles Times in 1978. The Screamers are widely cited as the pioneers of a genre now known as "synthpunk," and might also be classifeid as art punk. The Screamers were notable for their unusual instrumentation, featuring electric piano and synthesizer, while omitting guitars. Additional musicians, including violinists and a female vocalist, were occasionally incorporated into their performances.

The group featured a highly developed theatrical presentation that centered around a manic lead vocalist, Tomata du Plenty, whose stage persona one early commentator described as "a psychotic Mickey Rooney."

Though they developed a substantial following and generated considerable press coverage, the Screamers never released a record. In the Don Letts-directed documentary Punk: Attitude (2005) singer Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys cited the Screamers as a key influence on his group, and as one of the great unrecorded groups in rock history, sentiment echoed by Brendan Mullen, who ran the punk club The Masque.

certainly a classic band with sooo many great songs its hard to keep up. but personally i think the best band to use synths in those times were the untouchable psychotic madness, acid drenched, space dementia, mind warping, Nervous Gender. just sick. LONG LIVE THE LEGACY OF THE SCREAMERS!

Hello, this is a very neat blog, you dont find many like this these days, and my "fan jelaousy" wants it to stay like this... ha! but well, the screamers, indeed a great band... I had a 7", live in the masque '78 if I'm not mistaken, that one with du plenty in the front with a cofee, it's hard to find vinyls of them, or maybe not hard but expensive, hehe. Maybe if you have any for sale here's your buyer, =P. Well, nice blog, keep the good work.

A few years back I walked into Destroy All Music (I think that’s what it was called) & I almost shit my pants when I saw this in the LP bin. The drive back to Las Vegas was so long, I wish I had a turn table installed in my Ford Escort… I first was turned onto the Screamers around 1990 when I rented an old Live From Target Video from Tower Video, fun, fun, fun…!

I like this but it is still not as interesting as what I just read about. My favorite – well actually they are the only all girl band that I like “KITTIE” just got back from their tour and they are releasing the footage from it here http://www.woozyfly.com/kittie Check it Out!

How do I download this? It's in French.

 
At 6:21 AM, Blogger Brett said...

That's actually Romanian... not French. And Google won't convert it for me, so I guess I'm S.O.L.

Gait abnormality is a deviation from normal walking (gait). Watching a patient walk is the most important part of the neurological examination. Normal gait requires that many systems, including strength, sensation and coordination, function in an integrated fashion. Many common problems in the nervous system and musculoskeletal system will show up in the way a person walksSydney Escortswholesale sexy lingerie

There is software named as Digeus Registry Fixer I recommend it when system works slow, doesn't boot up, freezes or chashes. I also recommend Windsty Tune Up Suite. It repairs and optimizes the Windows.

Another available treatment option that can be done at home without a prescription is a topical ointment.
I would also like to dismiss the earlier notion that developing of genital skin
tags should not be misunderstood towards developing any sexually transmitted diseases.
The skin tags will be cut with a method that is in accordance
with their location on the body and size.
