The DC punk band Scream may have formed nearly three decades ago, but you’d never guess that while listening to Complete Control Session. Recorded live by the band’s previous drummer, Dave Grohl(!), its four tunes sound fresh and immediate.Our personal favorite is “The Year Bald Headed Singers Were In” a melodic rager that features stellar backing harmonies and a riff taken out of the SST songbook. “Hey, you can’t beat the stopwatch/No time, get out of my way,” Pete Stahl sings on “Stopwatch.” We suggest heeding his advice.
