The Necessary Effect: Screamers Songs Interpreted (Extravertigo)

By: Mike SOS

Talk about underground. Imagine releasing a tribute album for a band that never even released an album. Seems a bit strange, no? Well, The Screamers are that kind of genre-breaking outfit, and THE NECESSARY EFFECT is the album that pays homage to the seminal pre-1980's Los Angeles by way of Seattle underground cult crew. This 29-track release contains bands that, like The Screamers, are far from household names, and that's the way it should be. After all, chances are if you heard of this band or even were into this band, you probably wouldn't appreciate bands like Sum 41 covering one of its tracks. Noisy, disjointed, and very left of center (many of the bands and solo artists paying respect, much like The Screamers, don't even use a guitar), The Screamers are an acquired taste, but if you enjoy music that is artsy, dissonant, and way underground, check this twin disc collection out.
