Gun Shy and Bikini Red, the first two albums by the Screaming Blue Messiahs, were reissued on CD today by Wounded Bird Records. These are phenomenal rock 'n' roll albums, possibly the best argument for England as a nation capable of rockin' made during the whole '80s. Yes, they had a novelty hit with "I Wanna Be A Flintstone" (a song that actually survives its goofy lyrical conceit), but ignore that. The song linked below opened that same album (BR, from 1986), and it's a goddamn scorcher. The last time I had physical copies of these two albums, I sold them on Amazon Marketplace for ridiculous sums. Now they're $11 each. Go get 'em.
