Album Notes
(scream) - the definitive edtion

From late 1993 to early 1994 there was a band in NYC. A smoking, if short-lived, band featuring Victor McSurely (chapman ctick and vocals), Michael D’Agostino (drums and vocals) and myself, Curt Golden (guitar and vocals). It was called Desperate Measures.

The music on (scream) was recorded between 1994-97, in my apartment in New York City. It began as a simple exercise. It was meant to be archival, never released. “Reclamation”, “No Shadows”, and “What Is Real” had been in the Desperate Measures Repertoire. “The Mirror” was in rehearsal, but had never been performed when the band broke up in May 1994. I loved the band, and didn't want to lose track of the material. I pulled a lot of already obsolete recording equipment out of mothballs and set up in my living room, to the never ending distress of my neighbors. I worked without any sense of urgency, evenings and weekends. There was no deadline. As much as anything else, it was a useful project to keep me engaged and occupied at a time when I needed that.

What came of that was a 6-song demo that I used to get work. But more than that, (scream) developed something of a cult following.

In 2010 while I was digitizing boxes and boxes of reel-to-reel tapes, I found all of the original tracks, including a 3 unfinished pieces and a number of live recordings of Desperate Measures performing some of these pieces. And "the definitive edition" project was born.
