Band Biography

The Screaming Blue Messiahs were formed in 1983 in London by guitarist and singer Bill Carter, bass player and backing singer Chris Thompson and drummer Kenny Harris. The group emerged in the wake of the pub rock and punk scenes that had been very predominant on the UK capital’s live music circuit during the late ’70s/ early ’80s.

The band, a classic power trio, was active between 1983 and 1990 and released three major label LPs.

They toured extensively throughout Europe, North America and Australasia, garnering wide critical acclaim for their aggressive blend of rhythm and blues, punk and rockabilly.
