Independent label: Skull Records Was An SRT Custom Pressing SRT Cat Number S82CUS1473. (original self realeased on Skull Records label, but when it sold out its first pressing within a week it was picked up by No Future records). Screaming Dead were a punk rock band from Cheltenham formed in 1980, who have often been characterized as "horror punk". They released several singles and EPs with indie chart success, before splitting up in 1985. They reformed in 1997 and disbanded again in 1999. The band was formed by former singer with The Waste, Simon ("Sam") Bignall, bass guitarist Mal Page, and drummer Mark Ogilvie. The band built up a strong local following which spread further afield with coverage in fanzines such as Rising Free and sales of their demo tape. They followed their first tape with a more formal release, the Children of the Boneyard Stones cassette, which came with a badge and a copy of the band's own fanzine, Warcry. They then self-financed their debut vinyl release, the "Valley of the Dead" single, initially released on their own Skull Records label. Distributed By Skull Records.
