Die 80-er und 90-er Scheiben der LA-Veteranen, die spätestens seit ihrem Beitrag auf dem Kult-Sampler „AMERICAN GOTHIC“ aus dem Jahre 1988 zu den Kultstars des Genres zählen, sind gesuchte Sammlerobjekte, die in internationalen Tauschbörsen Höchstpreise erzielen. DEATHROCK.COM schreibt:

„SCREAMS FOR TINA arose out of the Los Angeles deathrock scene in the mid eighties, in the wake of bands like Christian Death, Voodoo Church, and Kommunity FK. Their sound was decidedly moodier and more „gothic“, as the genre that was defined in LAs gloom and doom punk offshoot, was becoming more and more mature. They were infamous performers at Hollywood, Los Angeles clubs like Scream, Zombie Zoo, Krypt, and more, and had the opportunity to play with some of the finest bands on tour from the UK.

Their debut LP, „Strobelight Funeral“ is a deathrock classic. They eventually followed up with the major release of their self titled CD on Cleopatra records. After a successful and legendary career with a devoted following, Screams For Tina disappeared.

Until Now.“

Das ist richtig: denn nun ist mit 2003 A.D. das erste neue Material seit zehn Jahren erschienen. Die Welt wird nie mehr dieselbe sein.
