NEW SCREAMING GEEZERS ALBUM COMING ON VINYL!
While there is a Screaming Geezers sampler available for review and airplay, the first official Screaming Geezers album with a different selection of songs and three new ones will be coming out as a vinyl album! Late Summer 2020! Watch this space.
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, the Iggy and the Stooges, Clutch and All Them Witches, The Screaming Geezers have been played/interviewed on KBOO FM and XRAY FM in Portland. The CD will be released in Europe by Black October Records and distributed by Rough Trade. For release dates, watch this space.
Lead singer/ lyricist John Shirley has written lyrics for the Blue Oyster Cult and others. 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 bandmates are Alec Burton from The Confidentials, on drums; Jimi Haskett from Theater of Sheep and many other projects; and bassist Mark Sten from the Oblivion Seekers and King Bee.
The band is available for bookings. See the contact form below.
