Come on in"
For the unconverted,
the Screaming Blue Messiahs
in their prime were an unholy
amalgam of blues, punk, country,
The foundation was the muscular rhythm section of Kenny Harris (drums) and Chris Thompson (bass).
On top of this rode Bill Carter's stream-of-consciousness vocals and stuttering, howling guitar.
The best British blues band of the eighties, and the barnstormingest live band of all time.
