The Screamers were part of the first wave of L.A. punk bands, active in 1977-1981. They cleared new paths for the sound and image of rock music, abandoning electric guitars for a keyboard-based sound, as well as embracing video and theatrics in a manner that put them far ahead of their time. However, the band never released a record and outside of several bootlegs of demos and live performances, there has never been an official aural document of their trailblazing music.
