Mal Page, bass; Mark Ogilvie, drummer; Sam Bignall, singer; and Tony McKormack, guitar formed Screaming Dead in 1979, in Cheltenham, UK and were named after a Spanish horror film that pitted Dracula Vs. Frankenstein. There were one of the early horror/punk bands, highly influenced by The Damned. They had a strong following with the early days of goth rock and lasted until 1985. They were called Cheltenham’s version of The Misfits. The original members, except McKormack, recently started playing again. Here’s hope that they come to a city near you or me soon.
