The 1983 debut release from Dischord Records’ group SCREAM. Fast, angsty hardcore punk that sits in the same world as Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Dag Nasty ++
One of the less celebrated bands from the first generation of Dischord/DC hardcore punk, in part, I guess, because of their more advanced musical abilitities – that pushed their sound and style into rockier territories in later years (and let’s face it, the contribution of Grohl, albeit modest, has slightly tarnished their street credibilty). But, head back in time to this debut album of 1983, and you’re hard-pushed to find anything in the whole of early 80’s punk as blazingly fast, tight and hooky as Still Screaming. Definitely a classic, able to match Minor Threat and Bad Brains.
