The Screaming Mad were a band from the North East of England fronted by Lord Floss. I remember seeing the band back in the late 90s supporting The Mourning After at a pub in Stockton-On-Tees. I'd just about forgotton about the band until the other week when I picked up a copy of their single 'Which Mask Today?' which came out on Dig The Fuzz Records.

They have been around a while and are pretty well-respected in their circles.Last Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of seeing a couple Michigan rock stalwarts do a rare performance at a local underground punk venue called The 3rd Death Star in…See More
"Cool. I have'nt seen SLF since , like 1995 , when Bruce Foxton was still in the group. It is'nt personal , I just bought one of their CDs around that time , and was underwhelmed by it.
