Original Recording. Lookout Records # LK 270 CD

Pleasant Screams is a non-stop punk and pop-punk affair, produced by Mass Giorgini at his Sonic Iguana Studio in Lafayette, IN and featuring the usual gang of contributors and guest stars. This is the best Queers album since "Don't Back Down". How can you not have a soft spot for a band that can so swiftly play sweeter than sweet poppy love songs just as well as they can crank out Ramones-y, buzz-saw guitar punk with adolescent boy-who-won't-grow-up lyrics? In addition, song, "I Wanna Be Happy", was written by Joe King and Ben Weasel around an unfinished Joey Ramone demo.





The Queers - Pleasant Screams (2002) RESTORED

2002's Pleasant Screams marks the Queers' 20th anniversary, with King the sole constant member, but like King's obvious heroes the Ramones (note the album title and its similarity to 1981's Pleasant Dreams), one can't say there's been much in the way of growth or, heaven forbid, maturity. The Queers' first full-length release since longtime drummer Hugh O'Neill's death from cancer in early 1999, Pleasant Screams is a familiar but highly enjoyable collection of boppy little two-minute pop-punk gems, ranging from the sunny little love songs "Tic Tic Toc" (written by "Metal" Mike Saunders) and "Debbie Be True" (by Fantastic Baggys), both of which show King's unabashed love of '62-'65 Beach Boys, to the self-explanatory "See Ya Later Fuckface", which has the album's catchiest chorus, and the gay-positive (yes, really) "Homo". A killer cover of the Choir's classic 1966 single "It's Cold Outside" is another highlight. Pleasant Screams won't change the mind of those who don't like this brand of funny/stupid juvenilia, but it's by far the best Queers album since 1996's Don't Back Down.
