Without question, The Screamers are the greatest band in the history of punk to never issue an official release. They were decades ahead of their time and were admired heavily by Iggy Pop (who wanted to produce them) and Devo (who wanted to tour with them nationally).

The Screamers practically pioneered the genre known as "synth punk" single-handedly, as they featured two synthesizes in favor of using guitars. This demo was recorded live by Geza X during the summer of '78 in one session and is by far their absolute defining recorded moment.
