Screamers - Demos 1977-78
posted a review of Screamers - Demos 1977-78. 1 day ago
I've heard of the legendary LA band for years so I ordered this collection. Skeptical of a keyboard instead of guitar l finally played the disc. Boy was I wrong, this is raging, snarling Punk rock
Awesome.

Another great album of articulate speed rock, all the elements are there. Great songs and song structures. If you like the other modern BR albums, you should like this one. Incredible album cover.

Yes, that really bugs me as I love that song
The band obviously hates that song as much as I love it, puts a real damper on an otherwise beautiful set that I looked forward to getting.

This is one of my favorites or favorite of my "KDB" style comps. The track selections are excellent, some real magic in those grooves that bring back good memories.

Brilliant fucking song Rikk Agnew's guitar is godlike and the way Steve Soto's bass works with Rikk's guitar is magical. The kinetic energy that propels the song is amazing. Rest in Peace Steve.

Original and homemade sounding songs that are probably self released by the band. Catchy and fun, Punk rock before punk.

Killer track selections from when music really mattered, awesome liner notes. I've got quite a few of the songs on other comps but so what. This is a well curated collection. The real shit.

I've got one of his comps and I can't wait to get more. At age 57 I still get excited about discovering new sounds. Let's keep REAL music alive.
Auto tune still sucks.

This record is a masterpiece. Totally original and well produced. Nothing generic about it, on a level with Dead Kennedys and the Big Boys. Great bass playing that's high in the mix. I bet Members of Rage Against the Machine have this record.

Love me is punk rock. Totally raw and unrestrained. The Cramps covered the song and the original is still more brutal.

I saw this at the record store and picked it up. I had never heard or heard of this band before. I'm sure glad I bought this record. Supercharged, high octane punk and roll. Money well spent.

My copy sounds great, no skips or other discrepancies. The band is in great form and every song is enjoyable. Awesome sound quality, better than I remembered. A wonderland of rhythms and textures. Godlike in its greatness.

Picked this record up on RSD. It's my first of this series. Pure fun, so much better than the auto-tune drek that comes out of the corporate music teat these days.
The track Motor City Funk is as good as the song title indicates.

Reunion show with the original lineup. Good sound quality. Rikk Agnew is a fucking genius. Nobody sounds like him, his riffs on Ameoba, Creatures and Kids of the Black Hole are legendary.

Same style cover except it's printed instead of hand made and numbered. I guess 1000 hand made covers was a real grind. The record is black instead of green. Sound quality and song selection is excellent. Very little space between tracks so its rapid... See full review

My first real exposure to this band. Holy shit, talk about underrated. If this collection is any indication this band is the equal to Gang of Four. Serious guitar work. I like the bass on the Uggh! a music war version of "Come Again" however. Great stuff!

I got this in the mail yesterday. This is an essential document of the scene "back in the day" in Hollywood. The recording and musicianship is crude and raw, which is what I expected. Makes me wish I was there. Awesome!

This is a fun comp, all the songs are original sounding, nothing generic here. Contains the only recorded tracks from Disability. The Bad Religion tracks are much better than the ones on the EP. Glad to finally have these recordings.

A nice Punk and Roll 7" from this German band. Wild in the Streets is not a Circle Jerks cover but it is a cool song. A band with the name Real Turds can't be to bad.
