"Loud, dark and fun as hell." - Anonymous Friend
Underground club "Scream" was an oasis of dark and beautiful hardcore music in otherwise blindingly sunny Los Angeles. Founded in 1985 by DJs Michael Stewart and Dayle Gloria, "Scream" was famous for horror movie themed venues, pitch-dark dancefloors and the lineup of bands that featured big loud, danceable sounds whether it was punk, rock, metal or industrial music. Flyers appealed to the L.A. Goth Scene and were often illustrated by outlaw punk artist, "Mad" Marc Rude, who also designed record covers for bands, most famously for "The Misfits". In 1987, Geffen Records produced the record, "Scream - A Compilation", to preserve some of the club's musical legacy. Before sputtering out in the 1990s, bands that appeared at "Scream" included "X", "The Sugarcubes", "Living Colour", "Ministry", "Guns 'N' Roses" and "Sisters of Mercy". Both of these flyers (one advertising the annual Halloween party) are illustrated by Marc Rude with band lists on their flipsides which include appearances by "Jane's Addiction" and "Primus". Rare to find intact.
