One of my favorite bands to see live, it was so good to see them again a few years ago at KungFu Necktie. This post has 3 Scream videos from Philadelphia and 1 from NYC from the mid-80s. I just discovered that I had the video below of them from Rock Hotel in 1984. I also added another video from Love Hall from 83 that was up on Youtube, West Side Club in 86 & Camden in 85. Scream is currently working on a new album called DC Special – “DC Special tells our story through the musical history we grew up with and so we’ve invited musicians from our local DC music community, both past and present, to collaborate with us during the session.” Their Dischord albums are available on Bandcamp
Rock Hotel NYC – February, 23, 1984
West Side Club 4/13/86
This was a great day first Decontrol & Scream at the West Side Club and then Marginal Man at the Kennel Club later that night. Scream did a bunch of songs from their first two albums plus lots of covers. I’m not sure exactly when this show was but I know it was Spring of 1986. I saw Scream a few more times after this but this was my favorite time – it was more like a party then a show. Scream are back together and doing some shows (hopefully they will do a tour) go to their site for more info.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow for the beta tapes
