What's not to like about snappy tunes titled "Kill Someone You Hate," "I Hate Music," and "Can't Get Arrested"? Former Gories mastermind Mick Collins returns to lead yet another riotous punk R&B band, with the role of vocal and guitar foil going to Terri Wahl of the Red Aunts. If the Screws aren't always as inspired in their racket as earlier Collins projects, at least the band demonstrates unique tastes in their cover song selections, from the Mad (auteurs of the aforementioned "I Hate Music") to relatively obscure Frank Zappa.
