Daytime soap dramas have got nothing on Screeching Weasel. Over the years Weasel has cast bandmates like they were going out of season, with over 20 people having a claim to Weasel fame. With a history as volatile as one of their own mosh pits, Screeching Weasel fans had to forget about venting their disgruntled 90’s youth after the band went on hiatus back in 2004. That is until now, the Weasel will Screech again!! And of course featuring a whole new line-up, surprisingly sans John Jughead, one of the band’s few regulars. Die hard fan, Heather Loop was beside herself at the reformation news and got herself a front row seat to the new and improved musical mustelas. Here’s what she thought:
“I went to go see Screeching Weasel a few weeks ago in Philly and it totally ef-in’ ruled! Screeching Weasel is one of the bestest punk bands from my past. With people from Russia, Italy, Romania, and the US at the show, it was like a world peace rally in Punk-Style! Going bizzerck as Ben Weasel approached the stage, the crowd screamed to the sing-along punk songs and thrashed ecstatically in the pit. I was in the very front which ruled but sucked at the same time. I was getting my tits squished against the railing by this hair monkey behind me. I hate you dude! But for me screeching weasel is always a great way to reminisce my chaotic adolescent days! I heartbeat you screeching weasel!”
