Screamers on Bus Bench: ICONIC Beloved Photo! Tomata du Plenty, Tommy Gear and KK Barrett, Spring 1977. THE. BEST. LA. BAND. Their debut show was landmark. Their shows events. Sadly, they imploded before officially recording. Which left the other best and most famous LA band, X. We all hung out. Screamers gave the best parties!
SO many people LOVE my Screamers on Bus Bench photo. A truly spontaneous moment! NO stylists. Real life! Gower Gulch, corner of Sunset Blvd and Gower. Historical corner.
I love the other photos, taken outside Bomp Records, North Hollywood the day it opened, April 9, 1977. I LOVE the back with the street scene. My Valley, ya know! Although I grew up in the West Valley, like fer sure. Northridge, near one of my alma maters, CSUN.
Oh the photos, onstage, offstage, parties, the Masque: I’ve a ton of ’em.
The music! The shows! Nothing will ever come close to it. Had to be there. Thanks for the memories, Tomata du Plenty, Tommy Gear, KK Barrett, Paul Roessler and others.
