Drogheda 1981 - 1983
Micheal Kinsella Lead Vocals
Eddie McKenna Bass
It is encouraging to see a local rock band working hard and getting gigs. And that is precisely what one outfit, Screamin’ Demons, are doing with themselves these days.
When I first encountered their music – predominantly heavy metal but they are trying to get out of that scene – at an NMS gig in Sarsfields, they came across as a decent rock group who can attain high standards in music anytime they put their minds to it. And this is a rare in many new wave Boyneside bands just now.
Their sound was fast and full of rhythm. Lead vocalist, Michael Kinsella, asserted his skills as a singer and showed his genius when the Demons played one of his many self penned numbers “Gossiper Ghost”.
They received a thunderous reception from a large audience and bass guitarist, Eddie McKenna, bounced around to his heart’s content.
Next Friday night they make their full debut in Joey Mahers. No doubt their fans will be out in force.
Eddie McKenna told me recently that the group were not content at being labelled just another heavy metal outfit and they intend doing something more. But he is adamant they would always be a rock band.
