Bio

Light Screamer is psychedelic noise punk from Örebro, Sweden

Formed in 2011 by Ida Andersson-Norrie, Jens Hellman, Peter Lindström and Tobias Eriksson, Light Screamer made their live debut at the Live at Heart festival in Örebro the same year. In March 2013, Light Screamer played three highly acclaimed shows during the SXSW festival in Austin, TX, which resulted in a record deal with local indie label Australian Cattle God Records. Their debut album "Gauss" was released later that year. The album was produced by Light Screamer and mastered by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers) at Preacher Mon, Austin, TX, and consists of 40 minutes of continuous music.

"It just continues to grow" (8/10) - ÖrebroStad.se

Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers), on working on "Gauss":
"I remember the day I discovered little chili peppers growing in my yard. The peppers looked like little red gum balls, so I ate one and it made me cry. Then I rubbed my eyes, and the chili was in my eyes. Just when it couldn't get worse, I went to pee and got it on my wiener. I still like chili peppers."

In 2014 Light Screamer returned to Austin for two shows, one of which was said to be the best show at SXSW.

"Yeah, go see them if you can, they are freakin' awesome live!" -Kevin Triplett (Director of the music documentary "Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah")

In September 2014, Nominata Records released Light Screamer's 7" vinyl, "BFJ", which features the title track "BFJ" by Light Screamer and a cover of "Sugary", written by legendary Austin noise rockers Cherubs. The vinyl is hand-numbered with all unique and reused covers, limited to 300 copies. The songs were recorded more or less live by Jason Morales in his analog studio The BBQ Shack in Austin, TX in March 2013.

"As uncompromisingly good as always" (8/10) - ÖrebroStad.se

The critically acclaimed Light Screamer have also managed to gain the respect of the musicians that they themselves are influenced by.

"I can't figure out how music works these days, but if this album had come out in the 80's when I was collecting records, and I, of course, didn't know who the hell [Light Screamer] were, I'm pretty sure I would still have this record in my collection." -Brett Bradford (Scratch Acid)

"Killer band" -John Hawkins (Crust)
