Rising out of the midst of the glam-filled Gothic Rock days of the late 80’s rose this prominent band from the large California Deathrock scene.  1986 saw the release of the self-produced E.P. Strobelight Funeral .  Shortly after the band embarked on their first live performances to the great response of enthusiastic audiences.  In the early nineties the band had reached a level of popularity locally and nationaly to attract the attention of the prominent Gothic label at the time Cleopatra Records and released their popular track “Eleven Eleven” on the compilation The Whip.  At this time they released their full-length debut album which was well received amongst the Gothic fans.  By 1997 the band had reached a point where they decided to take a break from the strain of the past several years.  After these long years of waiting for the fans and healing for the band, we are presented with a preview for the upcoming album in the form of an EP 2003 A.D. which is already getting positive reviews from fans old and new.

For those that didn’t catch this popular group the first time around, now is your chance to hear one of the great groups to be born out of the early 90’s Gothic Rock era.  This was a time when the scene was reaching a maturity and critical mass where Goth clubs were popping up all over the world and was the start of the popular scene so many are involved in today.  However, before the pounding beats of EBM entered the underground scene, people listened to Sisters of Mercy, Skinny Puppy and Front 242 all within a few minutes of each other and in the same club on the same dancefloor.  Screams for Tina jumped onto the scene with their solid Gothic Rock sound, deep bass vocals and driving guitars mixing it all up.  The fast-paced beat and grinding sounds were often found in groups of this style and are being re-born in the Gothic Rock revival of the new millenium.  Fans looking back to the past by viewing the future of the underground music scene can expect great things and Screams For Tina is one of them that proves it can happen.  You can catch selected tracks from the new E.P. here on the club radio show.  Keep an eye out for the new album, I know I’ll be anxiously awaiting it?s release.


2003 A.D. – Review

After a very long absence in the music scene, I was very happy to hear about this new E.P. by this legendary group.  It’s nice to hear something new come out by one of these groups that I grew to really enjoy during the 90’s Gothic Rock movement. Now we’re in the midst of the Gothic Rock revival of the new century and to kick it off is this 4-track release.  Apparently this is a teaser for new material we can expect in an upcoming full-length album.  This will be something I can look forward to based on the material from this E.P.

“Standing in the Rain” is one of the new tracks that carries on that solid Gothic sound we grew to love in their previous albums.  Driving beats and grinding guitars with Warren’s deep vocals resonating the lyrical content.  The excellent pounding drums and excellent bass of “Life Of Sin” is such a cool mixture of musical intellect.  These two tracks are destined to be memorable works not soon to be forgotten.  Each time I listen to them they grow on me with the steady rock sound that builds and flows so well.

The gloomy nature of the Goth elements certainly aren’t lost anywhere on this work either.  The instrumental track “Ranjipur” has it all.  The deep bass in this and each of the other tracks really bring it all out, that instense feeling that brings out so many sentiments.  Long-time fans will be pleased to hear one of the long-time favorites “Eleven Eleven” slightly remixed.  At first listen I didn’t notice any difference, but once I listened to the original and the remix back to back I could hear it.  The bass on this version comes out a lot more and there’s a lot more rhythm guitar and more layers mixed in for some nice texture, and it cuts off being slightly shorter.

So, if you’re a fan, don’t hesitate to grab this E.P.  And we can all look forward to another great album in the near future from this group.  We?ll all hope for the best.
