Wow, thanks for posting the info on that Screamers show. I was there and it was awesome. I remember Gary and the Blind Dates showed up late, and he ran from the back and dived across the stage. The Zippers and Screamers were awesome and I saw them several times later. After that show I formed the Snails and we played Straita Head many times and recorded our first single there- “Get off My Back” and “No Place Like Home” We played with the T- Birds and Teaser a lot. I have a live recording of one of our shows there which I had re-mastered and plan to release it. The Snails re-united last year and are working on a new album with some new songs and older “classics” like Get off My Back. I should have the new website up and running soon, and hope to play some shows when the album’s released. In the meantime, keep on rockin, Dave Farmer
About This Act

From Wikipedia:

The Screamers were a punk rock group active in the Los Angeles, California area in the late 1970s. The Screamers were pioneers of a genre now known as "synthpunk," and can also be classified as art punk.

... The Screamers' founders Tomata du Plenty (born David Xavier Harrigan 1948, died 2000) and Tommy Gear first collaborated in Seattle in 1975, where they formed The Tupperwares. The original lineup of the Tupperwares included Tommy Gear (at the time, using the name "Melba Toast"), Tomata du Plenty, and Rio de Janeiro on vocals, backed by Pam Lillig and Ben witz (later of Girls), as well as Bill Rieflin (later of The Blackouts and Ministry) and a teenage Eldon Hoke (later known as "El Duce" of The Mentors).
