When Dave Grohl joined Nirvana, he moved to Seattle from Washington D.C., and he also left his previous band, Scream. Now, Dischord Records is preparing to reissue the final album from Scream, Fumble.
“Hey weirdos….once upon a time, when I was just a wee lad, I played drums in a punk rock band from the Washington D.C. area called Scream,” Grohl writes via Facebook. “I had grown up buying their records and going to see their live shows, and eventually had the honor of becoming their drummer at the age of 17. Fresh out of high school, I started touring the world with them from 1987-1990. The last album that we made together, Fumble, is now being reissued by the almighty Dischord Records. Check it out, it might just change your life. It sure changed mine.”
Along with Grohl, Scream featured vocalist Peter Stahl, guitarist Franz Stahl and bassist Skeeter Thompson.
Dischord originally released Fumble, Scream’s fifth album, in 1993. The album was co-produced by Girls Against Boys’ Eli Janney and the band themselves.
