Back in February, The Screaming Geezers got great crowd response at the sold-out Roseland Theater, opening for the Blue Oyster Cult (who as always were superb). 1200 people were thoroughly rocked out by the Geezers and the band got compliments from everyone including from BOC itself. . .
A "Pacific Northwest supergroup”, with a sound drawing on such influences as Social Distortion, Iggy and the Stooges, Clutch and All Them Witches, The Screaming Geezers have been played/interviewed on KBOO FM and XRAY FM in Portland.
Lead singer/ lyricist John Shirley has written lyrics for the Blue Oyster Cult and others. He wrote the lyrics for five songs on the new Blue Oyster Cult album, "The Symbol Remains", including the singles. He has always been in bands—in Portland, he was lead singer in Sado-Nation and later of The Monitors; in New York he was a recording artist on the Celluloid label. He has also worked as a writer in television and movies, having written THE CROW and other scripts, and television animation.
His short-story collection Black Butterflies won the Bram Stoker award.
John’s band-mates are Alec Burton from The Confidentials, on drums; Jimi Haskett from Theater of Sheep and many other projects; and bassist Tim Clift from The Confidentials and other projects. The band has also worked with Mark Sten from the Oblivion Seekers and King Bee.
The band is available for bookings. See the contact form below.
