Format: MCD (Mini CD)

Rated: *****
Screams for Tina are an icon in the Los Angeles goth scene. When after 10 years on hiatus they have shown signs of life and activity, last year, German-Austrian label/mailorder Strobelight, was quick in picking them up for the delight of all you fans of the true classical gothic sound. Just four tracks make up this Mini CD, the last one being a remix of their anthem "Eleven Eleven", which originally was released on a Cleopatra records compilation in the eighties. If you are into goth-rock you should definitely give this a spin, because it goes back to the roots of the eighties US/UK sound, and because even though it is just two guys with a drum machine, guitar & bass and a voice, thier sound is powerful and throbbing and they are obviously back in the game and ready to play.
