SCREAMERS- Strength Through Intimidation LP
Without question, The Screamers are the greatest band in the history of punk to never issue an official release. They were decades ahead of their time and were admired heavily by Iggy Pop (who wanted to produce them) and Devo (who wanted to tour with them nationally). The Screamers practically pioneered the genre known as "synth punk" single-handedly, as they featured two synthesizes in favor of using guitars. This demo was recorded live by Geza X during the summer of '78 in one session and is by far their absolute defining recorded moment. This definitive version features much improved artwork over previous issues of this material. Limited edition of 500 copies. Track listing: 122 Hours of Fear I/ 122 Hours of Fear II/ Thru The Flames/ Sex Boy/ If I Can't Have/ She's The Girl/ Magazine Love/ Punish Or Be Damned/ The Beat Goes On/ Peer Pressure/ I Wanna Hurt/ Vertigo/ It's a Violent World/ In a Better World/ Government Love Affair.
