Screaming Blue Messiahs

This one will be short and to the point - kind of reminiscent of the career of the Screaming Blue Messiahs. If you have not heard their music, do yourself a favor and get acquainted on Youtube, iTunes, whatever it takes... Electric, Bombastic, Driving, Furious. The Messiahs.

Started in 1983 in London. An EP and three raucous albums later, they were good & gone. Comet-like, last seen in 1990.

One of the best live shows I ever have seen, Gaga fans. The old Ritz, NYC 1988. Lips and Marsboy will testify as to the greatness.

SBM Lineup:
Bill Carter - phenomenal guitar player, with a fixation on Americana
Chris Thompson - pounding bass
Kenny Harris - ferocious drums, kept everything in sync
