The Screws "The Screws" 1999

Epitaph recording artists the Red Aunts went to Detroit in 1997 to record their swan song album, "Ghetto Blaster", at Ghetto Recorders studio with Mick Collins as their chosen producer. The Red Aunts had long been fans of Mick's work and Mick was a fan of the Red Aunts. During a moment of inspiration, the Aunts decided to have Mick record a duet with RA vocalist/guitarist Terri Wahl - this planted the seeds for what would later become The Screws. Mick and Terri hatched the band during one of Mick's many sojourns to Los Angeles for a comic book convention. They quickly enlisted the duties of rhythm-section-for-hire Dan Brown and Marty Moore (from Jacksonville Beach, Florida) to take part. Dan and Marty had a two-piece band called Johnny Hash who'd recorded two singles for ITR as well as having both done time in '68 Comeback. Dan is also known as on/off (as of the time of this writing ON) bass player for Royal Trux. Once the Screws album had been recorded everyone went back to their other projects and forgot about it. After the record's release, however, offers began to roll in for live appearances and Mick and Terri did not want to disappoint. The band toured the western half of the US and the eastern half of the hemisphere (Japan) now with Jimmy Hole (Necessary Evils) on bass and Kerry Davis (Red Aunts) on drums. Their blues infused slop-punk sounds have delighted and offended crowds wherever they went. -
