Gods Look Down

On the train home from a hectic few days in London and Brighton. Had an argument with a Transport for London jobsworth at Euston. Can’t wait to get his months wages from him!! Paid first class for the train home just for the hell of it, it was only a couple of quid more but it’s like sitting in a library. Oh well, live and learn.

Not done a shuffle for a while, today it has spat out Scream’s Gods Look Down from their posthumous release Fumble. It’s been a long time since I’ve listened to Scream and this track in particular sounds like some of the early Foo Fighters stuff. The Foo’s comparison could be down to Scream’s drummer singing on this particular track and he happens to be Dave Grohl, who joined the band aged just 17 and played on the last two Scream albums before joining Nirvana.

Formed in 1981 in Virginia by brothers Peter and Franz Stahl (who had a brief stint with the Foo Fighters in the 1990’s), Scream are considered as a leading light of the early Washington, D.C. hardcore scene alongside the likes of Minor Threat and Government Issue. Four of their five albums were released through legendary Washington, D.C. label Dischord. Fumble was released in 1993, three years after the band split up.

No video for this track, so just the audio from YouTube.
