THE SCREAMERS ‘The Beat Goes On’

By all accounts, from those who were fortunate enough to be there, Los Angeles’ Screamers were one hell of a live act. Punk stalwarts such as Jello Biafra, Pat Smear and Alice Bag still sing the electro-punksters praises to this day, who until recently, had not released a hell of a lot of tracks as a recorded format, which is a shame because if they had done so at the appropriate time, these lunatics would be mentioned in the same breath as other L.A. punk greats The Germs, The Bags, The Dils et al. But never mind, they’re here now, and that’s what’s important.
