The Screaming Bloody Marys are legendary garage/punk from Oakland California. The name and members and their classic sound have been with us since 1989 now after a long hiatus, the Screaming Bloody Marys have roared back to life. They were gone, but not forgotten. In early 2015 calls came in to original member Dave Dalton from Die Laughing Records inquiring about the groups status Among those calling were Dick Manitoba (the Dictators) members of Rancid, booking agents and record labels, including San Francisco’s Zip Records/Die Laughing Records. The Screaming Bloody Marys reformed and their first show was supporting The Dictators/DOA at a sold-out house in San Francisco’s Slims and it begins.
The band can be characterized as ’77 garage punk hints of Slaughter and The Dogs, The Buzzcocks, Chelsea, The Dwarves, Teengenerate, Guitar Wolf, well you get the picture.
Screaming Bloody Marys have a slew of singles. Over the years, the various singles have become sought out by collectors. Some of the notable lable’s they have been on are Sympathy for The Record Industry, Wallibe (Japan), Smutt, I-99 records, Punkrock records and been on several compilations.
Their debut album ‘Get In, Get Off, Get Out’ was released in 1995 on the California label Doctor Dream Records/Mercury Records. The band then began a busy schedule of recording, touring and media coverage while sharing stages with Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Ramones, The Vibrators, The Melvins, The Adicts, Mudhoney, Hole, Cheap Trick, Dead Kennedys, TSOL and many other notables. As is often the case such touring/Recording and togetherness caused the Screaming Bloody Marys to self destruct and left their much anticipated second full length album to remain unreleased to this day.
