Sceamin' Stevies Australia – Just Want To Be Friends CD
Sceamin' Stevies Australia – Just Want To Be Friends CD. The Hekawis might have called it a day in 2006, but thankfully the band’s gregarious frontman Screamin’ Stevie Zillmann doesn’t look like he’ll be hanging up the cape or unplugging the keyboard and mic any time soon. Since releasing the cracking Four Flights Up with the Credit Union in 2008, Zillmann has assembled a new band, featuring guitarist Brian Mann, bassist Jack Maloney and drummer Russell Smith, who between them have played with the likes of Ed Kuepper, The Lime Spiders and Mystery Of Sixes, and his dirty, bluesy rock’n’roll has never sounded better. Sceamin' Stevies Australia encompass Garage to blues to Psychedelia and beyond, all with Stevies’s trademark organ grinding away. With only nine songs and clocking in at just over half an hour, Just Want to be Friends is a relatively short jaunt, but what it lacks in running time it more than makes up for with heart. If you were a fan of The Hekawis, or just like no-frills rock n roll in general, there’s plenty to enjoy here.
