Cleveland's Screaming will have its world premier on Saturday, July 1st at 8PM at The Jigsaw Tavern, 5324 State Road in Parma, Ohio 44134. That's just 3 blocks South of I-480. For more infor visit the Jigsaw's Myspace page at:

Also, the trailer is now up on YouTube. You can see it by clicking on the word "link" below or on the title of this article. Click a buncha times & make it more popular than all those dimwitted people who point their webcams at themselves and complain about things!
After the movie, you'll get to see the first performances by ace area hardcore pioneers The Dark, Numbskull and Spike in Vain in something like two decades. That oughta be majorly cool. I'll also be there. Flying all the way out from El Lay for the thing even though I have to be back in Los Angeles for the showing of Ultraman Max and Mirrorman Reflex at the Egyptian Theater near the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland on July 2nd. Y'all come out to that show, too, ya hear?
I know you're sick of hearing this. But I have once again revised the movie trailer. This time I've incorporated some of the footage from Vicki Sprague which hasn't been seen in 23 years! Click on the link to your right and enjoy!
My God, they do exist. Video tapes of hardcore shows at The Dale in Akron circa 1983 and the entire Cleveland show to raise money for the New Hope compilation LP. For, lo, I have seen them. And I can say without reservation that not one guitarist at those shows knew how to tune his instrument. And that the Urban Mutants were, as I suspected, truly the best hardcore band Akron ever produced. Starvation Army as a 3-piece with Jim Krane were Gods. Only The Guns could rock the Orkin commercial theme. ODFx were, as Doug Enkler described, "over-the-top ridiculous fuckin' hardcore." Agitated did agitate. Spike in Vain, Idiot Savants, Outerwear, Soylent Green(!)... I need a cigarette (& I don't even smoke!) I'll bring copies with when I come to Cleveland at the end of this month. Be there for the world premier of the film!!!
