Target Earth was Screamer's debut and only album. Released in 1988, durng an era when black-vinyl LPs were being recalled from the market and when thrash and grunge-metal were taking over the market, this album was largely ignored by critics. Some dismissed the band as being a "Queensryche wanna-be" --- even though Wisconsin's Screamer had been together longer than Queensryche. Only one pressing of CDs were ever made in 1988 with most going to the (unappreciative) press and radio. However, since that time the Target Earth album has become one of the most-bootlegged releases in indy rock history. To combat the bootlegs, New Renaissance has made this CD avaialable on a special limited edition. All songs are written and arranged by Screamer. Produced by Tim Hale for Horizon Productions. Manufactured and marketed by New Renaissance Records.
Memories of Grand Central Records

"I worked at Grand Central Records in lovely Kenosha, Wisconsin when Screamer was at their peak in the late 80's. Having the entire band as parents made life pretty eye opening for a green eyed kid. Getting to hear them practice almost everyday helped me become a better musician. Granted I joined the thrash circuit of music I always treasure those amazing days and nights working with Ron Valeo ( whom later formed The Electric Hellfire Club) and Grand Central Records. They are still open and still there. WOW. The most bootlegged indy rock CD! I have the demo's of this as well as the original CD/LP. Sorry keeping them. Thanks. Buy this if you love great guitars, vocals, drumming, bass, and on and on...My favorite memory is seeing them do "Fast as a Shark" by Accept years ago......."
