Pleasant Screams

by The Queers

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Rad Girlfriend Records re-issue on CD of the eighth studio album, and 6th release on Lookout! Before the band recinded their masters, and arguably one of their best, from The Queers. Includes five tracks from the "Today" EP. Pleasant Screams is a non-stop punk and pop-punk affair, produced by Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana, and featuring the usual gang of contributors and guest stars. The lyrics are frank and insightful, and the music is the patented Queers blend of buzz-saw Ramones-fueled guitar punk and Joe King's trademark whine. Pleasant Screams features guest vocals from Gretchen of the Smears on the track "You Just Gotta Blow My Mind." Another song, "I Wanna Be Happy," was written by Joe King and Ben Weasel around an unfinished Joey Ramone demo, and drum and second guitar duties are handled by Matt Drastic (TEEN IDOLS) and Dan Vapid (MOPES, SCREECHING WEASEL) respectively. THE QUEERS are one of the few bands that effectively blend classic rock'n'roll elements - think doo-wop, Phil Spector, THE BEACH BOYS - with punk rock's energy, power and attitude. They deserve your ears, eyes and hearts!

    Includes unlimited streaming of Pleasant Screams via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
