HISTORY

 The beginnings of Starscreen were set in motion by Neal and Daz while studying music at college. Along with a drummer on the college course they began rehearsals as a three piece. With Daz on both vocals and bass it was decided to branch out of the college group and look for a full time bass player, so that Daz would be free to concerntrate solely on singing. In comes Scott and after one rehearsal at Berry Hill Park in Mansfield the band had written the basis for at least 3 songs. The band went from strength to strength playing many local gigs and festivals but as the work load increased they were forced to search of a new drummer. Enter John "The Gob" Kidger.

 

 The New Starscreen worked harder and with even more energetic performances than ever, thanks in no small part to the power of the Kidger. Playing now on a national level, from London to Glasgow and everywhere in between Starscreen have establised a name as one of the best unsigned live bands around. They have supported such names as John Power (Cast), Chris Helme (Seahorses), the quireboys and even fellow local legend Alvin Stardust as well as Stacey Solomon....erm well we did.

 

 At the start of 2013 it was decided that they would try and raise the money to self fund their debut album and after 9 months of  hard work they finally achieved their goal. The Album was released in the Autumn of 2013 which was followed by a full UK Tour that will carried on into 2014. 

 

THE BAND THEN GOT A REGULAR RESIDENCY AT A WELL KNOWN BBQ RESTAURANT CHAIN. THESE GIGS WERE MAINLY COVERS WITH A FEW ORIGINALS THROWN IN. HERE STARTS THE NEXT CHAPTER OF THE STARSCREEN STORY. AT THESE SHOWS THEY HAD TO PLAY ACOUSTIC AS PEOPLE WERE EATING, DURING THE YEAR OF 2015/16 THEY CRAFTED A FULL 90 MINUTE ACOUSTIC SET AND CONTINUED TO TOUR VARIOUS OTHER VENUES AS AN ACOUSTIC 3 OR 4 PIECE.

 

AT THE END OF 2016 IT WAS DECIDED THAT NEW STARSCREEN MATERIAL WAS NEEDED AND AS IT WAS GOING TO BE MAINLY ACOUSTIC THEY DECIDED TO RECORD IT THEMSELVES. FROM CHRISTMAS 2016 TO THE SUMMER OF 2017 THE STARSCREEN BOYS RECORDED A BRAND NEW EP BETWEEN GIGS. TITLED "HIDEOUS AND KINKY" THIS WAS RELEASED IN AUGUST. IT WAS FOLLOWED BY EVEN MORE GIGS. LETS SEE WHERE THE FUTURE TAKES US FROM HERE.
 

KEEP SMILIN'
