scream Fumble (clear vinyl LP, £13.95)label: dischord
Pete Stahl: Vocals, Franz Stahl: Guitar, Vocals, Skeeter Thompson: Bass, Vocals, Dave Grohl: Drums, Vocals. Long out of print, this reissue has been remastered by TJ Lipple. The instrumental “Crackman” has been left off of this version to allow for higher sound quality, but will be included as part of the digital download. Fumble is the fifth and final full-length by Washington, DC’s Scream. It features nine songs recorded in December of 1989 by Eli Janney at Inner Ear Studios. Formed in Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia in 1981 by brothers Peter and Franz Stahl, bassist Skeeter Thompson and drummer Kent Stax, Scream released four albums on Dischord Records. Dave Grohl, a punk kid who grew up in nearby Springfield, VA, replaced Stax on the drums in 1986. Fumble was the second Scream record to feature Grohl - the first was No More Censorship, which was released on RAS Records - and it includes his sole lead vocal for the band, “Gods Look Down”. Though Fumble was recorded in 1989, the tapes spent a few years on the shelf as Scream split up while on tour the following year. It was only in 1993 – once Pete and Franz had formed Wool and Grohl had joined Nirvana – that the record was finally mixed and released. Tracklisting: 1) Caffeine Dream 2) Sunmaker 3) Mardi Gras 4) Land Torn Down 5) Gods Look Down 6) Gas 7) Dying Days 8) Poppa Says 9) Rain.
