Screaming Daisies – September’s Ghost

A while ago I received a CD from in the usual batch of hit and miss that comes in the form of a R*E*P*E*A*T reviews package jiffy bag. You kind of never know what you’re going to get. Sometimes it’s a truly torturous affair. But occasionally you find a little gem in there somewhere. On one of those occasions I was given an EP by a band called Screaming Daisies called the We Are The New Revolution EP which, and I am not ashamed to say, only caught my eye on first glance because of it’s lyrical association to a track by the band Bush. And believe me kids, Bush, back in the day, were fucking ace. Well, for me anyway.

So, bang up to date, this week I received in the post another CD from R*E*P*E*A*T with the new single from Screaming Daisies. September’s Ghost is the new single which is a, presumably, re-recorded track originally culled from the aforementioned We Are The New Revolution EP. And it’s really rather great. Music wise we are certainly looking towards the Kerrang! / emo type territory here. I’m sure the band won’t mind me saying that, it is not meant as a slur. It is hugely uplifting as well with some very clever observations on modern society. It’s no longer tragic / The daily panic / Each starving childs face becomes commonplace. Definitely a favourite for fans of 30 Seconds and MCR.

And proper homegrown Cambridge(ish) R*E*P*E*A*T sponsored talent. Just slightly peeved I didn’t get my quote on the press release next to Dave Eringa’s. One day…

A gem.
