Screeper is a Portsmouth combo with machines doing loops n’ big phat sorts of beat, fronted by a guitarist in a velvet-jacket. Their dance/rock crossover can go on a bit, but sometimes hits a vibe of runaway power.”” – Herb’s London Report

SCREEPER–The Golden Boy EP–4 Track ’97 CD
1. Can Fever
2. Golden Boy
3. Golden Boy (Simon Heartfield Mix)
4. Monkey Parkhouse

UK local Alternative heroes. Modern sounding they even combine some electronica, but at times they are rather too polite. 4 Tracks Inc Simon Heartfield Mix+can Fever Uk, Mouthy

Number 1 band from Portsmouth in the mid 1990’s

FINALLY, THE SLUMBERING midget that is the Portsmouth music scene joins the party. Hometown heroes for some time, Screeper have managed released a quite good CD.
Sampling Beefheart, cult TV and obscure films and with singer David Jones’ faltering falsetto almost passing for McAlmont, they fantasise about articulating the dreams of small-town misfits everywhere. Brian Jones, Ian Curtis, Morrissey: these are their heroes. They sound nothing like any of them.
Because, true to form for a late-’90s indie band, there’s always been a dance element to their music. Albeit a resolutely lo-fi one, that’s not so much dance music made in a bedsit, as for one. It can be fine – the hypnotic shuffle of ‘Can Fever’, the pharmaceutical banjo excess of ‘Heppen Harla’ – but it can also sound like Dreadzone, or result in rinky-dink post-Shamenisms.
Hopelessly naive it might be, but this is still the best CD ever by a Portsmouth band.
